Publisher Sony Interactive Entertainment and developers Sucker Punch Productions and Nixxes Software have announced Ghost of Tsushima Director's Cut is now available for PC via Steam and Epic Games Store for $59.99.

Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut first released for the PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4 in August 2021. The original game launched for the PS4 in July 2020.

A PSN account is not required to play the single-player mode on the PC version of Ghost of Tsushima Director's Cut. However, it is required in order to use the PlayStation Overlay and play the Legends online multiplayer mode.

Read details on the PC version below:

The PC version of Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut includes the full game, the Iki Island expansion, and the cooperative online multiplayer Legends mode. For the past year, the team at Nixxes has been working hard to bring the Sucker Punch in-house engine technology to PC and implement PC features such as unlocked frame rates, a variety of graphics settings and presets, and customizable mouse and keyboard controls. 

With ultrawide monitor support, you can take in the expansive terrain and ancient landmarks with a cinematic field of view. Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut on PC is fully optimized for 21:9 and 32:9 resolutions and even supports 48:9 resolutions for triple monitor setups.  

Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut on PC features the latest performance-enhancing technologies. NVIDIA DLSS 3 and AMD FSR 3 are available with both upscaling and frame generation options. Intel XeSS upscaling is also supported and if your hardware has headroom to spare, you can use NVIDIA DLAA or FSR 3 Native AA to further boost image quality.   

The game on PC also offers extensive controller support. Use Steam Input to remap and customize the peripheral of your choice to your preference. For a more immersive experience, use a PlayStation DualSense controller with haptic feedback and adaptive triggers, so you can feel the tension of drawing a bow and the strikes of your sword.  

For PC players who are new to the game, here’s an overview of everything that is included: 

Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut is an action-adventure game set in feudal Japan. Protagonist Jin Sakai was raised and trained in the ways of the samurai. His world is shattered when a Mongol invasion defeats the samurai army of his home on Tsushima island, and he is faced with a difficult decision: honor the tradition and customs of his upbringing and maintain a fight he cannot win, or deviate from his samurai path to protect the island and its people by any means necessary.  

In his quest to reclaim Tsushima, Jin seeks the guidance and support of old friends and new unlikely allies. He must break away from tradition, become a new kind of warrior, and protect what’s left of his home at all costs. 

Iki Island Expansion  In this story expansion, Jin discovers new locations, characters, and enemies on a mysterious island. The island of Iki is a wild, lawless land of raiders and criminals. Jin will have to bring all his skills to defeat the enemy and save Iki. 

Legends – Inspired by Japanese folk tales and mythology, this cooperative multiplayer experience consists of two-player story missions and four-player wave-based survival missions, as well as the competitive two-versus-two Rivals mode. Choose one of four classes: Samurai, Ronin, Hunter or Assassin and play with friends or via online matchmaking. 

Kurosawa Mode – Experience the game in black and white with film grain effects, as well as Japanese dialogue and English subtitles. This mode is inspired by the movies of legendary filmmaker Akira Kurosawa.

Looks like a big launch for PS on PC, only a couple hours and it's already overtaken HFW peak player numbers. Who knows what it will reach on the weekend. Shame about the delisting and PSN stuff though

That whole situation still makes me wonder, not only at Sony being idiots but how petty players are too.

Players have a point though, even in Europe there's people in countries like Serbia or Albania that can't buy the game on Steam due to PSN requirement

Yes, which is why Sony are idiots. But if Sony don't want to sell the game in those countries because of PSN it's up to them to not sell it in those countries, they'd idiots but their choice. Money is money, they are missing out on a lot.

But bet you a lot of these players moaning about having to have a PSN on Helldivers 2 also have an Ubisoft account to play AC Valhalla, a single player game. Heck one of the reviews listed countries the game isn't available in, which included North Korea.

And I bet you a lot of the players unhappy with PSN requirements are unhappy with other similar requirements too.

Oh, I'm sure there are many overlaps and genuine concerns too, do not deny that at all. The PSN bullshit is an obvious middle management corporate crap that should never even been a thing when considering PC releases but you know how these companies are at the moment, registered users are seemingly more important now than paying customers.

There are even some EU countries where PSN is not available... I'm talking about the Baltic states mainly, but could be others as well.

Could they have before? Before the Helldiver backlash that caused Sony to remove games from countries that don't have PSN accounts?

Of course they could. Steam is available in pretty much every country maybe except North Korea or Cuba. All Steam games including Sony exclusives on Steam were available to everyone prior to Helldivers 2 PSN situation. Also look at this lol... you need to show your Driving License to make PSN account in the UK WTF. https://steamcommunity.com/app/2215430/discussions/0/7093810350790881113/
