July 27, 2020 Patch Notes

Patch 1.05 has been released on July 27, 2020 for Ghost of Tsushima. This patch contains bug fixes, text changes, and new difficulty settings to get you into your zone!

Patch Summary and Highlights

  • Lethal difficulty
  • Lower intensity mode
  • Text changes
  • Bug fixes

What is in the Patch?

Lethal Difficulty Level

  • Enemy weapons are more deadly, but Jin’s katana is also more deadly
  • Enemies are more aggressive in combat
  • Enemies detect you faster
  • Tighter Parry and Dodge windows

Note: You can still change the difficulty level between Easy, Normal, Hard, and Lethal anytime in the game.

Lower Intensity Combat

This setting will now be available in the accessibility menu. Activating Lower Intensity mode will make timing-specific features easier to pull which makes combat a bit relaxing.

It will also adjust enemies' awareness, making stealth moves easier to perform.

  • Most enemy attacks which are normally unblockable become blockable when Lower Intensity is enabled. Blocking with L1 will keep you safe from more attacks than standard combat, though some attacks must still be dodged.
  • Enemies break off their attack combos after damaging you, giving you a chance to recover before the next wave of attacks. In addition, your heavy attacks will interrupt attacks from Brutes, giving you another way to stop their combos.
  • Enemies will not attack you while you’re using Resolve to heal
  • Enemy awareness builds more slowly, giving you more time to recover after being spotted

Note: You can turn on this setting anytime from the accessiblity menu regardless of the difficulty level you are playing.

Text Changes

  • Large Text option: Increases text size of subtitles, mission objectives and interact prompts by 150% when enabled
  • Added option to turn speaker name off when subtitles are enabled
  • New subtitle text color options in addition to white: Yellow, Blue, Red, Green
