Ghost Of Tsushima PC And Cross-Play Requirements Revealed

If you've got the right hardware, you can expect a pretty sharp experience on PC for Ghost of Tsushima.


Ghost of Tsushima is making its PC debut on May 16, and ahead of its release, Nixxes Software has revealed more details on the system and cross-play requirements for this port.

For the hardware requirements, there aren't any big surprises here. An SSD with 75GB of storage capacity is recommended, and for a decent 1080p 60fps experience, you'll be just fine with an Nvidia 20-series GPU and 16GB of RAM. If you're looking to play the game with all the visual details cranked up to the max and at 4K 60fps, you'll naturally need to have some top-tier hardware like an Nvidia 4080 or Radeon RX 7900 XT GPU.

As a reminder, Ghost of Tsushima Director's Cut on PC is fully optimized for ultra-wide monitors and also supports upscaling technologies like Nvidia DLSS and AMD FSR to help you get the most out of your GPU. Like the PS5 version, DualSense features like haptic feedback and adaptive triggers are also included, but only if you use a wired connection to your PC.

This is also the first PlayStation title for PC that makes use of a new overlay to give you a quick look at your friends list, trophies, settings, and profile.

For cross-play, Nixxes says you'll need to sign into your PlayStation Network account to access Legends mode and in-game voice chat, and once you do so, you can team up with PS5 and PS4 players in that multiplayer mode. If you're looking to score a quick deal on a preorder, Green Man Gaming has slashed the price on Ghost of Tsushima: Director's Cut to just $51, down from its PC launch price of $60.
