A Director's Cut for Ghost of Tsushima was announced recently, detailing audio/visual improvements for both PS4 and PS5 consoles.
The definitive edition is also set to include a new expansion, allowing samurai to traverse Iki Island. Even though official commentary about the DLC has been minuscule, details have seemingly leaked including map size and gameplay features.

Iki Island Content Seemingly Leaks
An alleged Quality Assurance tester of the new Iki Island expansion has noted significant details about the upcoming DLC. The supposed tester speaks positively of Iki Island:
The Quality Assurance tester asserts that Iki Island will be equal in size to the bottom portion of the first game's map.
Allegedly, there will be new combat features added including new fighting stances and upgrade features for swords and bows. This is in addition to strifes with new Mongol and enemy types.
With regards to open-world aspects, new shrines, charms, flute tunes and torches will seemingly be added. While customization seems to be expanded, with the addition of new armour for your horse and Jin's, through light grade and heavy defence.
The tester also claims that the expansion will last anywhere between 15 and 20 hours. Considering they stuck primarily to the main quest, the total runtime including side missions could be more.
Of course, these details could be false and far from the experience players are likely to encounter next month. But, it is not long to go until samurai all around the world can traverse Iki Island, as it launches alongside the Director's Cut on August 20.
