Sucker Punch Productions revealed today that the Ghost of Tsushima: Legends raid will be released on October 30 and revealed the requirements players will need to meet to take part in ‘The Tale of Iyo’. The studio also announced that starting tomorrow, and every Friday after, Ghost of Tsushima: Legends will feature a two-player story mission and four-player mission survival mission with specific weekly modifiers.

“This is the culmination of the story in Ghost of Tsushima: Legends, bringing the fight directly to Iyo’s realm,” the announcement blog post reads. “This Raid is divided into three chapters and requires a full team of four Ghosts, as well as excellent coordination and communication.”
The Tale of Iyo raid will not support matchmaking, according to Sucker Punch, so players wishing to participate will need to arrange their raid team ahead of time. It’s also recommended that everyone’s gear be at KI level 100 as an “absolute minimum.”
Sucker Punch recommends completing all story missions and replaying story and survival missions on higher difficulties to obtain higher gear before the raid. If players complete all of the new weekly challenges and all bonus objectives, they’ll receive max-level gear perfect for the raid. Doing so won’t be easy because the weekly challenge missions will be Nightmare difficulty, “intended to put you and your team to the test.”
An exact launch time for the raid will be announced closer to its launch on October 30, but weekly challenges will go live every Friday at 8 a.m. PT.
