As the developers of Sucker Punch made it clear, Ghost of Tsushima can be played without additional costs via the backward compatibility of PS5. The Digital Deluxe Upgrade to the samurai adventure caused confusion in the past few days.
A few days ago, the developers of Sucker Punch confirmed that the in-house samurai adventure Ghost of Tsushima can be played on the PlayStation 5 via backward compatibility. But that’s not all. As it was also said, players on Sony’s new generation console can look forward to technical improvements such as a more stable frame rate or shorter loading times.
In addition, it will be possible to transfer your save game from the PS4 to the PS5. The so-called Digital Deluxe Upgrade seemed to have caused a little confusion in the past few days.
Although the $10 DLC found its way onto the PlayStation Store in August, some players have apparently only just discovered it. This in turn gave rise to occasional fears that the chargeable Digital Deluxe Upgrade would be required to play Ghost of Tsushima on the PS5 or to benefit from the technical improvements on the new console. This is of course not the case.
Instead, the Digital Deluxe Upgrade is only required if you upgrade the standard edition of Ghost of Tsushima to the Digital Deluxe edition and enjoy the exclusive content such as the digital artbook, the developer commentary or the digital one want to secure the soundtrack.

The developers of Sucker Punch have now made this clear again to prevent possible confusion.
Ghost of Tsushima is backward compatible on PS5 for no additional cost, with improved framerates and load times. The upgrade listed is to upgrade from the standard PS4 game to the Digital Deluxe (with in-game items, digital artbook, soundtrack, and director’s commentary)
