Sony has revealed the system requirements for Ghost of Tsushima’s PC port, alongside the addition of crossplay.

There were reports of a Ghost of Tsushima PC port circulating the internet until Sony officially announced its existence in March 2024 alongside confirmation that Nixxes was the studio porting it. With the May release date edging closer, Sony has revealed fresh information for the upcoming port that has fans looking forward to the future of PC ports of first-party Sony games.

Alongside the upcoming port’s system requirements, an official blog post by Sony gave more information on how crossplay will work for the upcoming Ghost of Tsushima PC port. With the introduction of PlayStation trophies and a PS overlay, this port looks to be the best major PlayStation PC port yet.

Will Ghost of Tsushima PC have crossplay?

Yes, Ghost of Tsushima will allow PC players to play with PS4 and PS5 players, although there’s no mention of cross-progression.

In its blog, Sony stated that Ghost of Tsushima’s co-op mode Legends will allow PC players to play alongside PS4 and PS5 players. Players can use in-game voice chat to talk to each other, although using Discord is also a viable option.

Sony also announced that Ghost of Tsushima’s PC port will be the first PlayStation game on the system to include a PlayStation overlay. The overlay will let players access their friends list, notifications, profile, and settings, just as on Sony’s consoles. Similarly, the game will allow players to collect trophies, which will sync with Steam and the Epic Games Store’s achievements. As for how to open the overlay, players can do it from the in-game menu or by pressing Shift + F1.

To access the Legends mode or the in-game overlay, fans must sign into their PlayStation Network account, or neither will work. Unlike the Legends mode with its mandatory sign-in, the overlay is optional. While the Horizon Forbidden West PC port doesn’t have these features, other future PlayStation first-party PC ports may also allow fans to use the PlayStation overlay and earn trophies.

What are the system requirements for Ghost of Tsushima PC?

Sony has shared the system requirements for the Ghost of Tsushima PC port, and players will need a decent system to run the game smoothly. Here’s the full breakdown:

Fortunately, these system requirements cover a lot of specifications allowing players with lower-end systems to still enjoy Ghost of Tsushima. However, fans must have a good system to play at higher frame rates and resolutions.

Players with weaker systems can use upscaling and frame generation technologies like AMD FSR 3 and Intel XeSS to increase their frame rates. Those with Nvidia’s RTX 40 series GPUs can use DLSS 3 as well.

The PC port of Ghost of Tsushima has optimizations for ultra-wide and triple set-up monitors, with support for numerous aspect ratios such as 21:9, 32:9, and even 48:9.

Ghost of Tsushima’s PC port will launch on May 16, 2024 on Steam and the Epic Games Store.
