Furthermore, the requirements also mention a “Desire to write stories set in feudal Japan.” This confirms that a sequel is indeed in the works, which is great news for the fans. The game has already captivated players all over the world. Moreover, a next-gen sequel would be amazing. This will also extend PlayStation 5’s first-party exclusive line-up as it joins the likes of God of War and Spider-Man: Miles Morales.

Recently, the free “Legends” update also made its way into the game. The official announcement reads “Ghost of Tsushima: Legends is a brand new, online cooperative multiplayer experience that will be a free update for all Ghost of Tsushima owners. A classic element of some of our favorite samurai films is warriors standing together, ready to fight as a team. In Ghost of Tsushima: Legends, you can fight side-by-side with your friends, which is such an important part of fulfilling that samurai fantasy in a whole new way.”

This was great news for fans who were eagerly waiting for this update. The co-op mode in a predominantly single-player game is always exciting.

The news of a sequel itself is enough to entice the fans to move towards PlayStation rather than Xbox. Sony has always wowed its fans with amazing exclusives, and it plans to continue doing that. This will definitely prove to be a boost to PS5 sales in November.
