Celebrate 12 months of Ghost of Tsushima with these "re-enabled" PlayStation-inspired Legends outfits

And together, we've petted 55 million foxes.

Ghost of Tsushima developer Sucker Punch has "re-enabled" four PlayStation-inspired Legends outfits in celebration of its very first anniversary.

Inspired by characters from God of War, Horizon Zero Dawn, Shadow of the Colossus, and Bloodborne, the outfits had originally only been available for a limited time over the Christmas holidays. Now, however, they can be unlocked by completing any Legends Story or Survival mission with each class.

That's not all, though. The team also took the time to share some stats about the Ghost of Tsushima, including the revelation that since it launched a year ago, collectively there have been 679.2 million standoffs, 333.1 million duels, 68.5 Haikus written, and together we've taken 61 million in-game photos.

We've also spent 4241 years on horseback together, summoned 60.1 million spirit dogs, played 40.76 million legends mode missions, and petted 55.63 million foxes.

"July 17 marks one year since the release of Ghost Of Tsushima!" the studio announced on social media. "For every fox you pet, every photo mode shot you shared, every standoff you completed, or any other way you joined us on this journey, thank you from the bottom of our hearts for an incredible year!"

"To celebrate, we've re-enabled these Ghost Of Tsushima: Legends outfits inspired by iconic PlayStation characters from God of War, Horizon Zero Dawn, Shadow of the Colossus and Bloodborne! Unlock them by completing any Legends Story or Survival mission with each class."

As Matt wrote earlier this month, having spent some time percolating in the rumour pool (and occasionally leaking onto various ratings boards around the world), developer Sucker Punch's "director's cut" of its acclaimed open-world stealth-action game Ghost of Tsushima is now official, and coming to PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 on 20th August.

Ghost of Tsushima: Director's Cut will be available as a full-price digital and physical release, costing $59.99 USD on PS4 and $69.99 USD on PS5. Those that pre-order via the PS Store can download the existing PS4 version of the game immediately, and all progress will transfer to the Director's Cut on release (this is also the case if you already own the original game).

Additionally, owners of the original edition have the option to upgrade to the Director's Cut at any time from 20th August. It'll cost $19.99 USD to upgrade from the original version to the Director's Cut on PS4 and $29.99 USD to do so on PS5. Those that purchase the PS4 Director's Cut can upgrade to the PS5 version for $9.99.

20th August will also bring a free update for all players, introducing new photo mode updates, new accessibility options for controller remapping, the option to enable a target lock-on during combat, and the ability to hide your quiver during gameplay.
