How to Enter Iki Island – Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut

To enter Iki Island and start the Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut content, the first thing you need to do is play through the main game until you reach Chapter 2. At the start of it, you’ll find yourself in Toyotama; from that point on, you can access Iki Island. If you’ve already played through the game and have progressed well beyond this point, worry not; as long as you have the DLC installed and have progressed beyond the end of chapter one, you’re good to go.

So, once you make it to Toyotama, press the Options button on your controller to enter the menu. Go into the Journal and select Tales of Iki. Track the first quest on the list, the one called “Journey into the Past.” From there, just follow the map towards Iki Island. Soon enough, you’ll be investigating a settlement, and things will only ramp up from there. So, that’s how to unlock and start the Ghost of Tsushima Iki Island Director’s Cut.

Now that we know how to enter Iki Island, a few details about what you can expect to see. For one, there will be nine main tale missions, aka story missions. They’ll take you around 3-4 hours to complete, cutscenes and dialogues included. After that, you can feel free to explore the island for side quests and collectibles. Apparently, nothing is missable, so you don’t have to fret about that.
