Ghost of Tsushima update brings Horizon Forbidden West tie-in, new difficulty

Sucker Punch Productions has released a new update to its open-world samurai game, adding an homage to another PlayStation series. Yes, Jin Sakai can now don a set of armor inspired by Aloy, the hero of the upcoming Horizon Forbidden West.

You can get a quick glimpse of the outfit below, courtesy of the tweet Sucker Punch used to announce the patch.

It’s worth noting that to unlock the outfit, you’ll need the Director’s Cut of the game, which grants access to the new region of Iki Island. Then you’ll need to complete a newly added wind shrine, after which Jin will be able to cosplay as everyone’s favorite redheaded Nora hunter.

The new armor isn’t the only new addition to the patch. There are also a few tweaks to the multiplayer experience, Legends. There’s a new Platinum difficulty, which will be harder than the existing Gold difficulty but won’t have the modifiers of Nightmare difficulty, making it a more predictable challenge tier. Players can also now block players they don’t want to be matched with in the future from the game’s social menu. Finally, there’s a fix for a minor stuttering issue.

Sucker Punch says more Legends “bug fixes and improvements” are on the way, with the patch expected to arrive in March.
