Character customization in Ghost of Tsushima: Upgrade Appearance

There is no character creator as such in this game but you can change Jin’s appearance based on the gear and armor set you choose. There are also some additional elements like helmets, hats and more. Let’s take a look at them in more detail.


To put it simply, you have to complete missions to earn new armor. In the earliest part of the game, you will get the Traveler’s Attire and Broken Armor. Each armor has its own perks, for example, the Traveler’s Attire has a bigger focus on tracking things like Flowers and traveling.

When you get a new armor set, you can upgrade it. Doing this will not only change its power but it will also get an appearance upgrade. If you don’t like how it looks, you can revert to the prior one – you won’t lose the other buffs you have got.

You can even talk to a merchant and buy armor dyes from him to unlock new appearances and looks. Apart from armor dyes, here are some of the things that you can change: sword designs, bow designs, helmets, hats, masks, headbands and of course, armor. You can get them via main missions, side quests and various other ways.
