Ghost of Tsushima: Director’s Cut for PS5 & PS4 Seemingly Confirmed by ESRB Rating

Rumors have been swirling since last week that Sucker Punch’s acclaimed Ghost of Tsushima open-world action game is set to receive a new content expansion, and a newly discovered ESRB rating for a Ghost of Tsushima: Director’s Cut suggests this they may very well have been accurate.

Interestingly, the Director’s Cut is rated for both PS5 and PS4, so the critically acclaimed game is likely making the jump to the next-generation console.

Here’s the description from the ESRB:

This is an action game in which players assume the role of a samurai (Jin Sakai) on a quest for vengeance against Mongol invaders in 13th century Japan. Players traverse open-world environments, interact with characters, complete quests (e.g., assassinations), and infiltrate enemy strongholds. Players use samurai swords, poison darts, and arrows to battle enemies in third-person melee-style combat. Some attacks result in dismemberment/decapitation of enemy soldiers, often accompanied by large blood-splatter effects. Players can also perform assassination kills (e.g., neck stabbing, sword impalement) to dispatch enemies quietly. Cutscenes depict additional acts of intense violence: a soldier lit on fire and beheaded; bound civilians lit on fire and burned at the stake; a decapitated man’s head held up towards the screen. The game also depicts a man’s exposed buttocks as he bathes in a hot spring. The word “sh*t” appears in the game.

Of course, we shouldn’t jump to conclusion too soon — the appearance of an ESRB rating certainly isn’t confirmation in itself, and even if it comes to fruition it may not feature the rumored “Ghosts of Ikishima” content expansion at all. Still, there’s rarely smoke without fire…

Twinfinite reviewed Ghost of Tsushima when it launched last year and absolutely loved it, scoring the game 4.5/5.
