Sucker Punch Productions has confirmed that this raid will be releasing on October 30, however matchmaking is not supported. That means you will have to come to the table with a group of friends who are ready to quest.
The raid event is called “The Tale of Iyo” and it will require a full four player team with a KI gear requirement of 100. Sucker Punch has recommended to players who are interested in the raid event that they finish all of the game’s story missions and replay the story and survival modes on higher difficulties to gather the proper gear and meet the raid requirements.
Ghost of Tsushima: Legends has proven very popular since it launched just a few weeks ago. In that time, there have been more than 2 million matches made through the system.
Of course, it was not without it setbacks. There were a number of bugs that plagued the new mode. Sucker Punch was forced to address these lingering issues in a patch that was released last week, entitled patch 1.13.
This patch resolved a number of issues including:
- A bug that prevented platinum trophy armor dye from showing up in New Game Plus mode. A bug that caused Network Error pop-ups frequently. A bug that kept users stuck in the Legends tutorial mode Support for the PlayStation Network’s “Players Met” function Various crash and bug fixes throughout the game
In addition to Legends, this month’s major Ghost of Tsushima update added a new game plus mode. This is one of the most requested modes for the title. New Game Plus allows players who have completed the game to go back and replay it once more, this time with all of the weapons, armor, and levels they had earned in their initial playthrough.
New Game Plus is a very popular feature, but it’s not something that a lot of modern games launch with. Major titles like God of War, Marvel’s Spider-Man, and The Last of Us: Part 2 all launched without a New Game Plus mode. Eventually, through free DLC updates, all of these games added this feature, making players more likely to play through it a second time.
Ghost of Tsushima is currently available on PlayStation 4. It will also be playable on the upcoming PlayStation 5 console, where the Game Boost function will allow it to run at 60 Frames Per-Second.
