There are four different classes in Ghost of Tsushima: Legends. After starting the game, players have to go through a tutorial session where they will get to select their first Legend Class. Whether they choose a Samurai, Hunter or any other class as a starter class, they can always unlock the remaining classes by playing the game.

One of the best features in Ghost of Tsushima: Legends is that there is no class lock. In simple words, when gamers join a co-op multiplayer session, all players can choose the same class, or try a different combination of character classes to make a diverse team.

Ultimate Ability: Hachiman’s Fury (slash through enemies with a flurry of attacks)

Samurai are the tank class that will let players engage in fights in an upfront manner. By using this class, players can gain attention in the battlefield and make other classes more efficient.

B. Hunter

Ultimate Ability: Eye of Uchitsune (fires multiple arrows towards an enemy)

Hunter is the typical archer class found in MMORPGs, and they are more suited to a support role, and deal decent damage.

C. Ronin

Ultimate Ability: Breath of Izanami (can revive entire team)

Ronin is a healer and support class in Ghost of Tsushima: Legends. Apart from healing and reviving teammates, he can also summon a spirit dog that can serve as a pet.

Ultimate Ability: Shadow Strike (teleport and attack)

In MMORPGs, assassin or rogue classes do high DPS (damage per second). Now, we know that Ghost of Tsushima: Legends is not an MMO game, but it has some similarities when it comes to the class system. And this makes the Assassin class in Ghost of Tsushima: Legends the high DPS class.

A. Survival Missions

Survival missions are a four-player co-op based wave mode where players face different waves of enemies while protecting a location in Tsushima. The longer they hold out, the more rewards they receive.

There is also a blessing system in this game mode that enables users to ignite enemies or summon a spirit bear. Most probably, there will be more features with regards to the survival game mode that we will learn upon the release of Ghost of Tsushima: Legends.

B. Raid

Raids in Ghost of Tsushima: Legends will be the most challenging game mode that players will get to play a few weeks after the update. Players need top gears, a well-organized team and a better understanding of the present classes to complete the three-part adventure in Iyo’s realm (or raids in simple terms).
