Ghost of Tsushima: Director’s Cut Available Now With Day-One DLSS 3, DLAA & Reflex Support

In the late 13th century, the Mongol empire laid waste to entire nations along their campaign to conquer the East. Tsushima Island is all that stands between mainland Japan and a massive Mongol invasion fleet led by the ruthless and cunning general, Khotun Khan.

As the island burns in the wake of the first wave of the Mongol assault, courageous samurai warrior Jin Sakai stands resolute. As one of the last surviving members of his clan, Jin is resolved to do whatever it takes, at any cost, to protect his people and reclaim his home. He must set aside the traditions that have shaped him as a warrior to forge a new path, the path of the Ghost, and wage an unconventional war for the freedom of Tsushima. For the very first time on PC, play through Jin Sakai’s journey and discover the complete Ghost of Tsushima experience in this Director’s Cut.


Available now, Ghost of Tsushima: Director’s Cut includes out of the box support for our suite of game-enhancing technologies. DLSS 2 enables all GeForce RTX users to accelerate frame rates, DLSS 3 gives GeForce RTX 40 Series users the power of frame rate multiplication for the fastest performance possible, and DLAA uses a native resolution image to maximize image quality, rather than boosting performance. You can even combine DLAA and DLSS Frame Generation for excellent image quality, and performance. Get an exclusive look at DLSS 3 performance in Ghost of Tsushima: Director's Cut in our RTX On trailer.


Using DLSS 3, GeForce RTX 40 Series gamers can multiply performance by an average of 2.6X at 4K, with every setting maxed out. This big bump to frame rates enables players with a GeForce RTX 4070, or an even-faster GPU, to play the critically acclaimed Ghost of Tsushima at over 100 FPS. And owners of the GeForce RTX 4090 can even surpass 200 frames per second for the definitive Ghost of Tsushima: Director’s Cut experience.

At 2560x1440, a 2X multiplier ensures all GeForce RTX 40 Series gamers can play Ghost of Tsushima: Director’s Cut at over 90 frames per second, and allows users with high refresh rate displays to max out their capabilities thanks to super fast frame rates on the GeForce RTX 4070 and even faster cards:

At 1920x1080, a 1.8X performance increase enables every GeForce RTX 40 Series owner to play at over 120 frames per second, and gives faster GPUs the performance to surpass 200 FPS, with the GeForce RTX 4090 hitting 290 FPS:

GeForce RTX 40 Series laptops similarly benefit from DLSS 3, with performance accelerated by 2.1X on average at both 1920x1080 and 2560x1440, enabling max setting 60 FPS+ gameplay on the complete range, and over 170 FPS gameplay on the GeForce RTX 4080 and 4090 Laptop GPUs:

Additionally, all GeForce gamers can activate NVIDIA Reflex in Ghost of Tsushima: Director’s Cut. This game changing technology reduces system latency on GeForce graphics cards and laptops so your actions occur quicker, giving you a competitive edge in multiplayer matches, and making single-player titles more responsive and enjoyable.

Since its debut in September 2020, NVIDIA Reflex has reduced system latency in over 100 games, and over 90% of GeForce gamers have enabled Reflex. 9 of the top 10 competitive shooters feature Reflex support, along with critically acclaimed co-op and single-player games. In 2023 alone, GeForce gamers played over 10 billion hours of their favorite titles with increased responsiveness thanks to Reflex’s innovative system latency reducing technology.


If you’re intending to play through this spectacular, critically acclaimed game, be sure to download and install our Ghost of Tsushima: Director’s Cut GeForce Game Ready driver, ensuring your experience is at its best from the moment you start playing.


Die By The Blade Available Now With DLSS 2

Grindstone, Triple Hill Interactive and Toko Midori’s Die By The Blade is a 1v1 weapons-focused fighter where the difference between victory and death lies in a single strike of the blade. Choose your weapon and character combination freely to define your moveset, then do battle in neon-soaked back alleys and ancient forests. Take up arms and crush your friends in local or online multiplayer, or test your skills against unknown warriors in online ranked matches.


In a game where every strike can mean instant death, victory in these tense, all-or-nothing matches will depend on your ability to read your opponent, parry and avoid their attacks, and exploit their mistakes at a moment’s notice. Ensure your frame rate doesn’t impede gameplay by enabling DLSS 2 to accelerate frame rates in Die By The Blade.

INDIKA Out Now With DLSS 2

Odd Meter and 11 bit studios’ INDIKA is a third-person, story-driven game set in a strange world where religious visions clash with harsh reality. It tells the story of a young nun who sets off on a journey of self-discovery with the most unusual, horn-headed companion by her side. On the outside, Indika seems to be a typical nun attempting to adjust to a difficult and monotonous monastery life. Humble and innocent in her appearance, do not be deceived as this young girl has also made a highly unlikely acquaintance—as she speaks with the devil himself.


In INDIKA, GeForce RTX gamers can accelerate performance with DLSS 2, for even faster frame rates.
