Getting the best Ghost of Tsushima price is going to be critical for those that fancy jumping into the PS4's swansong first-party game now that the Director's Cut has been announced. Actually, even without the Director's Cut, the game still plays fantastically on PS4 and PS5 and is well worth a look. Either way, we've rounded up all the best Ghost of Tsushima prices and deals going.

I'll leave you to read our Ghost of Tsushima review in full but, as Rachel says, it really is a fitting swansong for the PS4 generation. Created by Sucker Punch, the team behind inFamous and Sly Cooper, this new open-world adventure takes place in feudal Japan and tasks you with holding off hordes of Mongol invaders. Doing so won't be easy, either; you'll need to learn "the way of the Ghost" to get the upper hand in what looks to be a drop-dead gorgeous battle for survival. 

The Collector's and Special Editions of the PS4 version may be harder to find nowadays, but they are still out there. Somewhere. And that Director's Cut really is going to be a great entry point and returning point for players. We've rounded up the latest prices and deal for all of them.

And while you wait for your copy to arrive, perhaps you can spend some time swotting up and preparing with our Ghost of Tsushima guide, which includes a great place to start: the best Ghost of Tsushima tips.

When it arrives on August 20 this year - a matter of weeks away! - the Director's Cut will easily be the best place for newcomers to jump into Ghost of Tsushima. Featuring a brand new Iki Island expansion and access to a whole host of PS5 features the Director's Cut is the fullest and most bombastic experience of Ghost of Tsushima that will be available.

If you want to consider the lowest cost method to get the Director's Cut if you already own a copy of the game, then that upgrade, on either platform, will incur a smaller cost:

- From PS4 Director's Cut to PS5 Director's Cut will be $9.99.
- From standard PS4 Ghost of Tsushima to PS5 Director's Cut will be $29.99.

Get Ghost of Tsushima in its most straightforward form with the standard edition. Lovely. And remember, if you can find a cheap copy of the PS4 version, you may end up being able to get it, and the upgrade cost for lower than a PS5 Director's Cut version too! Might be worth considering that to save some beans.

Ghost of Tsushima Collector's Edition prices

The pick of the Ghost of Tsushima edition bunch is definitely the Collector's Edition. This features an already-iconic mask that's a replica of the in-game item. It comes on an individually numbered stand so you know it's yours alone. As well as that headline act, you'll get a sashimono (war banner) that’s nearly four and half feet long, and a traditional-style furoshiki (wrapping cloth). You’ll also get a copy of the game with the steelbook case, a physical 48-page mini art book, and a full-world, printed-on-cloth map. This consists of a digital copy of the art book, the director's commentary, the Charm of Hachiman's Favor, a Samurai PS4 theme, and the Hero of Tsushima skin set. That. Is a lot of goodies. Note: stock is fluctuating wildly of this edition, too, so you'll have to act fast, be patient, both, or be very lucky - the link below will get you to where you need to be nonetheless, however.
