How to Unlock Iki Island in Ghost Of Tsushima Director's Cut

Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut features a new location called Iki Island. This guide will show players how they can unlock access to it.

Iki Island is the new location available in Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut. The original Ghost of Tsushima is regarded as one of the best games in the last generation, and the Director’s Cut includes a great deal of new content to unlock. Players who have upgraded to the PlayStation 5 version of the game can experience a brand-new location, Iki Island, that has been overrun by the Mongol empire. Players can take down camps, unlock new armors, accessories, and dyes, and continue to level up Jin within this new content update. There are a few things players must do to access Iki Island. This is especially important for first-time players of Ghost of Tsushima.


As players enter Iki Island in Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut, they will need to be wary of the new Shaman enemy type. With their musical abilities, Shamans can increase the strength of all other enemies in the area. Players will have to think strategically when encountering them. There’s a strong emphasis on new side activities on Iki Island, and, with eight hours of gameplay included in the expansion, players will want to get started right away. Here’s how players can access Iki Island.
