First announced back in August, Ghost of Tsushima’s online co-op mode is being added to the game on October 16 via patch 1.1. This free update also adds some other requested features and changes, including the ability to create and equip various load-outs and New Game+ mode.

Ghost of Tsushima Legends is the new online co-op mode and it will let up to four players work together in a story separate from the original game, featuring new enemies and characters based on Japanese mythology. To access these new online missions players can start up a Legends lobby via the pause menu or track down a new in-game character named Gyozen the storyteller.

This new co-op mode includes its own new trophies, cosmetics, and gear, which players will unlock through gameplay. According to Sucker Punch, there are zero microtransactions in Legends. So no samurai loot boxes for you.

Update 1.1 also adds New Game+ to Ghost of Tsushima, which gives players a new horse and lets them restart the game with all their previous abilities, gear, and charms. This mode also gets its own new trophies too.

Armour load-outs are also coming with this update, letting players create specific load-outs tied to the different armours they own in-game.

You can even pet foxes (aww). But there’s one big quality-of-life feature missing from this action-packed, samurai-themed masterpiece: loadouts.
