Ghost of Tsushima defined 2020 as one of the greatest single-player games released that year. It was followed by an equally impressive co-op mode called Ghost of Tsushima: Legends.

Yes! There is a trailer. You can watch it below.

In the trailer, you can see a new mode coming to Legends called Rivals. In the new mode, two teams compete against numerous waves of enemies. With each downed foe, you’ll gain a Magatama.

We can see players in the trailer collecting items and defeating certain enemies.

What's the Ghost of Tsushima: Legends story?

We don't have a full idea of the story yet. From what we know, the characters will a reason to travel to a supernatural realm where they face a terrifying new foe. This story will be told from the perspective of a new NPC named Gyozen the Storyteller. He'll appear ahead of Jin in the vanilla game, similar to how Yamato explained Mythic Tales for Jin in the original campaign.

Do you lose anything by purchasing the Ghost of Tsushima: Legends standalone?

It’s almost the exact same game. The only difference is when you purchase it as a standalone you can’t unlock the Legends cosmetics earned by playing the Ghost of Tsushima campaign.

What else is coming in the new Ghost of Tsushima: Legends update?

In addition to the Rivals game mode, there will be a new level cap of 120. The raid, Trials of Iyo will receive a higher difficulty setting and there will be numerous new maps for Survival and Legends mode.

The exact details of these additions are currently unknown. But if you already own Ghost of Tsushima, you won’t need to make another purchase to enjoy the changes.

What's the Ghost of Tsushima: Legends gameplay like?

The gameplay is a four-player single-player combat experience while featuring "new magical twists that often require careful synchronization with your partner."

In other words, it will feature swords enhanced by magic. How that magic manifests will depend entirely on your chosen class.

What classes are in Ghost of Tsushima: Legends?

There are four unique classes: Samurai, Hunter, Ronin, and Assassin. You can choose your first class after finishing the tutorial. The remaining classes will be unlocked as you progress further in the story mode. According to Sucker Punch in a PlayStation Blog post, "each class can unlock an alternate ability as you progress, as well as earning class-specific Charms and ranged weapons." There's no limit as to what classes can be featured in your party. You can have up to four of the same class or four different classes.

The Samurai class is a tank/DPS type character. They'll fight foes on the frontlines and act as the main killer. Their ultimate attack is Hachiman's Fury, which allows them to attack with a flurry of slashes in quick succession.

The Hunter class is a sniper. They defeat foes using a bow and arrow that's been tricked out with explosive arrows and other special arrows. Their ultimate attack is called the Eye of Uchitsune, which allows them to perform multiple headshots in quick succession. In practice, this likely works similarly to Dead Eye in the Red Dead franchise.

The Ronin class is the team healer. Using their ultimate, Breath of Izanami, Ronins can revive their entire team in a flash. Ronins also have access to a pettable Spirit Dog. It's unknown what this dog adds to combat, but they can be pet and that's enough.

The Assassin class is the second DPS. They can deal massive damage in quick bursts. Their ultimate is Shadow Strike, which allows them to teleport across the map in a single moment, dealing a powerful blow to their enemies.

Does Ghost of Tsushima: Legends have microtransactions?

It does not feature microtransactions.

How will Ghost of Tsushima: Legends connect to the base game?

Ghost of Tsushima: Legends' narrator, Gyozen the Storyteller will appear at various points in the base game's world after the update has been installed. It's unknown if progression in Ghost of Tsushima: Legends will unlock anything in the main game, but it wouldn't be unexpected

Ghost of Tsushima: Legends will launch on October 16.
