Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut comes with the base game, all currently available DLC, and the new Iki Island DLC. Sucker Punch says this is a “completely new chapter in Jin’s story” and will see him investigating the island for signs of a Mongol invasion.

“We will have more to share about Iki’s story soon, but today we can confirm that beyond a completely new story and new characters, this new island also features tons of new content including new environments to explore, new armor for Jin as well as his horse, new minigames, new techniques, new types of enemies and much more, ”announced Sucker Punch. “There are even new animals to pet!”
