PlayStation 4 classic (the game also got a PS5 update) Ghost of Tsushima is headed to PC on May 16, with the Director's Cut version hitting the platform with the Iki Island expansion and the co-op multiplayer Legends mode. In a fantastic move, we've got confirmation that the co-op will support cross-play with PlayStation gamers.

With the talented Nixxes Software handling the port (the studio's most recent effort was the excellent Horizon Forbidden West for PC), Ghost of Tsushima will feature a range of visual enhancements on PC, including support for ultrawide displays (up to 48:9 resolutions), an uncapped frame rate, and upscaling tech that includes NVIDIA DLSS, Intel XeSS, and AMD FSR 3.

Nixxes says it has been working hard to make the game "run well on older hardware." With the PC specs and hardware requirements released today, the good news is that you'll only need a GeForce GTX 960 with 4GB of VRAM to play the game on the lowest settings. The bad news? You'll need a beast of a rig to play the game in 4K 60 FPS.

Nixxes lists a GeForce RTX 4080 or a Radeon RX 7900 XT as the recommended GPU to play Ghost of Tsushima at 4K 60FPS using the game's 'Very High' quality preset. This seems a little steep for a game that debuted on the PlayStation 4. Even though the visuals are still impressive, the overall look has a 'last-gen' feel. This is not a knock on the game, as the art direction is fantastic, and it's a great get for PC gamers. It's just that we would have thought a GeForce RTX 4070 or 4070 Ti SUPER would suffice.

Nixxes hasn't specified if these specs are enabled with DLSS, FSR, or XeSS upscaling, but we assume not. In that case, you won't need a GeForce RTX 4080 to play in 4K. Outside of the 'Very High' settings, you'll need at least a GeForce RTX 2060 or Radeon RX 5600 XT to play with Medium settings at 1080p or a GeForce RTX 3070 or Radeon RX 6800 to play with High settings at 1440p.
