The previously announced Legends cooperative multiplayer mode for Ghost of Tsushima will be released on October 16. Developer Sucker Punch has announced this via the PlayStation Blog.

Ghost of Tsushima: Legends is a free update to the PS4-exclusive game, released earlier this year. In the new mode, you can compete with friends. There are story missions for two players, or survival missions for groups of four. Another raid will be added later this year.

Players must first download version 1.1 of the game, then they can find the free update on PlayStation Store. A PlayStation Plus subscription is required to play with others online. You can start Legends by talking to the new character Gyozen the Storyteller in-game, or by launching it directly from the main menu.

In addition to the new game mode, other updates are also being made for the game. For example, New Game + is added, which allows you to restart the game after you finish it. You then keep all earned upgrades, but the difficulty level is also increased (although you can adjust it manually).

Furthermore, new options are added to the photo mode and it becomes easier to switch between different sets of gear and talismans.
