Ghost of Tsushima: Director’s Cut patch restores colored button prompts

Ghost of Tsushima: Director’s Cut has now restored button prompt colors with its latest patch.

Sucker Punch Productions’ Ghost of Tsushima: Director’s Cut brought with it a wealth of improvements for players on PS5. Although, one of them was shifting the game to a more sleek look by introducing monotonous button prompts, something we highlighted as a negative choice in our review. However, in the 2.08 update, color has been restored.

Some users have been excited about seeing color return to the button prompts, while some have suggested that the studio looks into making them as a toggleable option for players who like the sleek feel.

It’s understandable why the studio shifted the colors away as the DualSense controller is monotonous in itself, having black and white symbols, so matching the UI with that made sense. However, in doing so, players that are reliant and comfortable with associating buttons with colors lose out on following along with the inputs needed.

The patch also improves load times for viewing cosmetics on the PS5 and has some bug fixes and adjustments to Legends. The Director’s Cut edition of the game at its core did introduce some new accessibility features such as alternate controller layouts, and a new target lock-on mode. Back in July 2020, Ghost of Tsushima received a patch to introduce large text and a low-intensity mode.
