- Hunter – A skilled marksman that can pick off enemies from afar
- Ronin – A support character that can summon a Spirit Dog as well as revive comrades
- Assassin – A powerful fighter that does massive damage in a single attack
Aside from having unique skillsets, each class has its own set of charms and ranged weapons.
Legends’ also comes with a wealth of other content, including masks, armor, emotes, and more. Best of all, these items are all unlocked through gameplay, without any microtransactions.
For the game’s singleplayer mode, Version 1.1 brings New Game+ to Ghost of Tsushima. In this mode, players can experience the story again, but with all the skills and items that he/she has unlocked during a previous playthrough. Of course, this mode will also have tougher difficulty, but it can still be changed anytime on the settings.
Aside from New Game+, the update also includes a wealth of new gear and cosmetic items, some of which can only be accessed via New Game+. The update also brings Armor Loadouts, and even new options in the game’s already robust photo mode.
