Ghost of Tsushima, one of the best selling PlayStation games of the past few years, bids farewell to players with its last update, patch 2.18.
Sucker Punch has every reason to be pleased with Ghost of Tsushima; the open-world action adventure set in feudal Japan has been a hit since its arrival on the market almost two years ago, becoming the new PS4-exclusive IP with the best debut ever. Since then, the title hasn’t slowed down, crowning itself as another PlayStation bestseller with over 8 million copies sold.
The road is coming to an end, and Sucker Punch has prepared its 2.18 patch, confirming that no further updates are in the works. The game has not stopped receiving support from the community and its developers, who have not stopped releasing updates. However, the studio has confirmed that it will be keeping an eye on the Gotlegends community subreddit and tweets to @SuckerPunchProd if any major bugs arise.
The studio has used the release of this latest patch to bid a warm farewell to players, thanking them for their support since launch. “When Legends launched back in October 2020, we never thought we’d have such an active community a year and a half later – we couldn’t be more grateful to all of you who have been with us on this journey!”
Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut patch 2.18 (2,018,000 for PS5) addresses inventory changes in Legends, bug fixes and improvements, as well as making minor changes to the single-player mode, such as fixing issues with dialogue and cutscenes, and tweaks to the New Game+ merchant. If you want to check out this latest update’s details, the patch notes are available on the official PlayStation blog.
Besides that, Sony continues to bring its big video game franchises to the big screen after Uncharted: The Movie and HBO’s The Last of Us series, and Sucker Punch’s samurai story is getting a film adaptation from John Wick director Chad Stahelski. Stahelski will be joined by Takashi Doscher, who will write the film’s screenplay.
