Wow, amazing all the new FREE, yes FREE stuff they just added to this game. Even New Game Plus has a extra headgear, masks, armour, skins etc. That and the new challenge and multiplayer stuff as well. New bloodier combat charm as well!

 

 This is how you do DLC, Sucker Punch should be praised for this.

Legends mode is great fun. It’s clearly “recycled stuff” but man, the balance is tight so far. Some really tense battles in 4p Survival. Wouldn’t mind it at all if they spun this out Warframe style.

Sure.

 

Played some of the legends mode last night, was quite a lot of fun in Story Mode but have yet to try survival mode.  Does anyone know if you can go in with less than the 4 players? :)

I'm really looking forward to the sequel on PS5, this game already looks incredible and plays so well. Add in more variation and they could potentially make an all-time classic. 

So mr Gerbik since I consider you to be a Tenchu-adept:  does this scratch my-still-itching-next-gen-Tenchu-itch?  In the sense that the stealth is really enjoyable?  Your opinion counts for a lot!

Nope. It's literally Assassin's Creed Goes Japan. Fine and fun for what it is, a wonderful atmosphere, looks gorgeous, but not in any way a Tenchu. Sadly.

Is it available on the relative cheap anywhere? Was still £50 in most places I looked last week.

Not long too go now 32 days


I’ve had the game sat on my shelf for weeks now staring at me to play it & even though I’m getting Cyberpunk on release Ghost will be the first game I play on the PS5.

I picked up a pre owned copy off eBay for £25.

In all seriousness I tried the cod beta, which I wouldn’t normally do. I’m waaay to old for that stuff now. Like an old man in a supermarket.

Really enjoying the legends mode, it's a surprisingly substantial addition and, having gotten bored of the po-faced single player, I am enjoying the more supernatural feel.

Still playing legends mode, its really good!  Its basically Destiny meets Samurai where you play through story missions to earn gear to level up your character.  I have played through all 9 story missions (each split up into 3 chapters) on bronze with a mate (it 2 player) and it was great fun with lots of different mechanics.  Playing through on Silver, not only are their more and harder enemies they have also layered on additional objectives which makes everything feel freshers, almost like a new level.

 

They also have survival mode for 4 players where you defend 4 points from waves of different enemies and boss waves. I haven't played much of this as it required a higher gear score but its looks like fun.

 

There is also a raid which opened up on Friday and requires 4 high level players so am working towards that.

 

For an add on I am truly impressed, this could have easily been paid DLC, as its almost an entirely new game in its own right (I reckon I have clocked 6-7 hours and am less that 10% of the way through the main progress markers). It would be great to get a few people on here playing should we make it to the raid.

You start afresh on the legends mode,  There are 4 characters available which share the same basic move set but have specialised abilities (essentially Tank, Support, DPS and Ranged attacks) which you level up individually to open up new techniques.  All the gear you earn can be used across characters. I get the impression there is quite a lot of flexibility in how you build your character and, certainly on the higher difficulties, I think working together will be paramount.

 

I played the first few hours of the campaign but got bored of the po-faced story, Legends is a much more Supernatural spin which I quite like.

Does Legends have any tutorial sections for learning the various moves or should I play some of the campaign first to understand the basiscs. Can't wait to start playing this, I love the setting.

Yep, the first thing you do is run through a tutorial which shows you all the characters, you then need to pick your starting character which you will use for the first few hours.  I went with Ronin which I kinda regretted as he is a support character with an ultimate that resurrects fallen allies, however as the story mode is only 2 player this isn't used very much.  I would suggest Samurai might be a better starting point.

 

Although Ronin does have a Ghost dog so there is that...

Thanks this sounds really great, now hoping the PS5 consoles are shipped early because of the new lockdown.

Playing the main game first would definitely help, Legends assumes you know the basics of combat from the single player and the tutorial only really teaches you the class specific techniques that aren't in the single player.

 

To progress on the harder difficulties of Legends you'll need to be competent at staggering, damage combos and perfect parries / dodges.

 

We made it to the third chapter of the raid over the weekend (thanks to chief strategist @Rikku and facetank @Nathan Wind), it was such a good time. Real Destiny Vault of Glass vibes, nice varied puzzle sections and great combat encounters which really encourage you to work as a team and use your characters abilities well. If you dislike jumping puzzles, you might be tearing your hair out though :lol:

I hated the jumping section in vault of glass!

Thanks for the tip on playing the main game first to get the basics.
