Sucker Punch released Ghost of Tsushima’s “Legends” DLC update overnight Australian Time.
The visually stunning free update was met with fan appraisal, “Legends is one of the best free updates I’ve ever played. Enough said.” @GermanStrands via Twitter.
The update gives you the option to choose between four characters. Either Samurai, Ronin, Assassin, or the Hunter.
Each option gives users a unique set of skills and abilities to utilise throughout multiplayer mode.
Having experienced it myself, I realised the update added a deeper layer to the supernatural aspect that was hinted at during the original story.
This update takes it to a whole new level. It applies added backstory, immersive colour scheme and interactions, to floating rocks in the sky. Which I can only describe as Avatar like.
Multiplayer mode uses terrain from the original landscape, however, covers it with a deep red glow that surrounds players. Adding a higher sense of danger and immersion for users.
The online gameplay has a few minor glitches, for instance I loosed an arrow at an enemy and he just vanished before it could make impact.
A minor inconvenience in a somewhat otherwise fantastic update.
I look forward to exploring this update more while collaborating online in a multiplayer setting.
