Recently, Sucker Punch studio announced the director’s cut of the action game Ghost of Tsushima. The players were glad that the developers decided not only to update the game for the PlayStation 5 but also to release the first expansion with a new island.
However, one moment nevertheless caused a wave of criticism in the community. We are talking about a paid upgrade for the owners of the original, who will be forced to pay from 10 to 30 dollars (depending on the generation of the platform).
Some have tweeted that the studio has the moral right to ask for money for the update, given that the update includes a lot of improvements, a separate add-on with an island, and in the past, Sucker Punch has released a free multiplayer game without microtransactions.
Others, on the other hand, express dissatisfaction, comparing Sony to Microsoft, which does not take money for nextgen-upgrades of its games. The media believe that in this way the Japanese company wants to attract more players to buy the update. It is noteworthy that the add-on with the new island is only available as part of the director’s cut.
PlayStation 5 version of Ghost of Tsushima features lip sync for Japanese voice acting, faster loading times, 3D audio, 4K @ 60fps and support for DualSense features.
