The PS4 smash hit samurai open-world game Ghost of Tsushima has just received an update, v1.05, which adds a super-difficult 'Lethal' mode and more.

The main updates include:

New difficulty level 'Lethal' added

The power of a single blow improves for both the enemy and the player. In some cases, a single sword can kill one.

In addition to this,

  • Enemies become more aggressive.

  • Stealth allows enemies to find you faster.

  • The timing of catching and evading becomes more severe.

Lower intensity combat option added

Apart from difficulty, a new option has been added to make combat easier, focusing on timing. Selecting "Yes" automatically sets the difficulty level to "Easy".

  • Some non-defensible attacks become defensible.

  • Enemy combos will be interrupted by the player taking damage or hitting the enemy hard.

  • Enemies won't attack while you're recovering your energy.

  • Stealth settings are more forgiving, and enemies take longer to detect you.

Improvement of text size and readability

The ‘larger text’ is still added, which many games will fix after release despite the fact that we've been in the high-resolution and multi-resolution era for some time now.

  • Large Text option: Increases text size of subtitles, mission objectives and interact prompts by 150% when enabled

  • Subtitle Option: Option to turn off or on the speaker name on the subtitle

  • Subtitle text color option: Yellow, blue, red and green are added to the white

Additional minor bug fixes.
