Best Ghost of Tsushima PC Mods

The Ghost of Tsushima modding scene is still young, so bigger mods will take some time to get released. Still, there are quite a few mods that make the game even better that you can download right now.

Fans have been clamoring for a PC version of this game ever since it was first released on PlayStation 4 back in 2020. Now fans can finally develop the mods they’ve been dreaming about for years with the newly released PC port of Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut. Model swaps, graphics tweaks, and more await you if you’re looking to install mods for your Ghost of Tsushima playthrough on PC.

Fast Launch (Skip Startup Videos) in Ghost of Tsushima

This type of mod always comes around when a new game is released, and for good reason. There are simply way too many startup videos at the beginning of Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut, so the Fast Launch mod gets rid of them all and lets you boot straight to the game’s title screen. If you just want to explore the open world for a short play session or jump into Legends for a little while, this mod makes it much easier to do so.

Natural Color Visuals in Ghost of Tsushima

Ghost of Tsushima is already a beautiful game, but some players prefer a more realistic approach to graphics. The Natural Color Visuals mod changes the game’s colors to look more realistic, toning down some of the bright, saturated colors to resemble the real world a bit more closely. It also adds a bit of sharpness to help with clarity, which is great if you’re using lowered graphics settings that may be a tad blurry.

Toggle HUD in Ghost of Tsushima

Ghost of Tsushima is a game that’s just begging you to take screenshots, so being able to remove the HUD to capture the island’s natural beauty is a godsend. The Toggle Hud mod does exactly what it says it does, letting you completely disable the game’s HUD with a single key press so you can take screenshots more easily or just roam around the world and soak in the sights.

BetterFX – Crisp in Ghost of Tsushima

Yet another graphics mode, BetterFX is a ReShade preset that ups the game’s sharpness and saturation to create a more striking look. It comes with a minimal performance hit, too, so it’s a great way to make the game look sharper if you’re using DLSS or FSR’s performance modes to maintain a high framerate.

NG Plus Save in Ghost of Tsushima

Last but not least, NG Plus Save is a save file replacement that lets you dive straight into a fully completed save for Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut. Did you play the game on PS4 or PS5 and just want to jump into the PC version without slogging through the opening hours? This is the mod for you!

That’s it for the best Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut mods currently available on PC! We’ll update this guide when bigger and better mods become available for this open world samurai adventure. More updates are on the way from developer Nixxes to fix some of the game’s bugs, however, so expect mod releases to be a bit delayed as new patches are released.
