Ghost of Tsushima Director's Cut file size has been revealed, as the pre-load for newcomers has now kicked off.

Just below, you can see a new tweet that came about earlier today on August 13 from PlayStation Game Size, a Twitter account that typically chronicles new game listings on the PlayStation Store. This time though, the account is reporting that the Ghost of Tsushima Director's Cut is available to be pre-loaded right now, and weighs in at nearly 60GB on PS5.

However, it should be noted that this pre-load phase is now live only for those who aren't upgrading their existing copies of Ghost of Tsushima. If you already own Sucker Punch's game, there unfortunately won't be a pre-load phase, and you'll only be able to download the Director's Cut version when it launches next week on August 20.

It's also interesting to note that Ghost of Tsushima's file size increases by nearly 20GB on PS5 compared to its PS4 counterpart. It's worth remembering that the PS5 version of the game has a host of technical improvements, like adaptive triggers, haptic feedback, and smoother 60 frames per second gameplay, among other details.

It's also possible that the Iki Island expansion is included within the file size. If you weren't aware, the headline addition in the Director's Cut version of Ghost of Tsushima is a sprawling new location called Ikishima, where protagonist Jin faces off against more Mongol forces led by a new powerful commander. Iki Island is an exciting prospect for fans of Sucker Punch's game, as it's set to feature new wildlife, combat abilities, and much more.
