Ghost of Tsushima launched as a single-player game, but Sucker Punch has announced an ambitious new feature for the action game: co-op multiplayer. The "Legends" co-op mode will be coming for free sometime later this year.

According to a post on the PlayStation Blog, Legends is an entirely new game mode that doesn't follow the travails of Jin at all. Instead, it revolves around four warriors, legends in Tsushima, and the locations and enemies will be more fantastical and based on Japanese folk tales and mythology.

Legends will be exclusively reserved for co-op, with groups of 2-4. You can choose one of four character classes to play--Samurai, Hunter, Ronin, or Assassin--each with their own unique abilities. With two players you can take on co-op Story missions. With a full group of four, you can take on wave-based Survival missions. There will also be a super-difficult four-player Raid coming sometime after Legends launches.

Sucker Punch says it will be sharing more details like character classes and customization as the Legends mode gets closer to launch. An accompanying cinematic trailer (above) sets the mood and shows snippets of gameplay.

"Ghost of Tsushima is at its best when you're riding your horse and taking in the beautiful world on your own terms, armed with a sword and a screenshot button, allowing the environmental cues and your own curiosity to guide you," Edmond Tran wrote in GameSpot's Ghost of Tsushima review. "It's not quite a Criterion classic, but a lot of the time it sure looks like one."
