If you love playing games about Japanese folklore with your buddies, then you’re in luck because for this article, we’ll be delving into the new Ghost of Tsushima Legends game!

Last updated: February 2022

Following the success of Ghost of Tsushima, developers Sucker Punch Productions decided to add a new multiplayer mode to the title. On October 16, 2020, Ghost of Tsushima Legends was added to the base game. Unlike the main campaign, Legends was a multiplayer expansion that allowed players to enjoy new content with up to four friends. So, if you’re a big fan of the Samurai faction in For Honor but are looking for a more in-depth gaming experience, then Legends might be exactly what you’re looking for.

Ghost of Tsushima Legends took everything players loved about the base game and translated it smoothly into a co-op format. The stealth mechanics, the challenging combat, and the rich folklore rooted in Japanese mythology — it was all there. So, it’s no surprise that the expansion pack was a hit. Because of this, the developers recently decided to release a standalone version of it! Now, you can enjoy the multiplayer aspect of Ghost of Tsushima without ever having to touch the main story. Read on to learn more about what to expect from the standalone Ghost of Tsushima Legends release.
