Rise of the Ronin PS5

Team Ninja has announced in a new PlayStation Blog post that PS5 exclusive Rise of the Ronin will take an update later this week that bundles in new missions, features, and gameplay enhancements. There's going to be five Ally Missions to complete, dojo training partners, a level sync selection feature, and more added via the PS5 patch.

The full list of updates via the PlayStation Blog is as follows:

New and expanded content

  • 5 new Ally Missions added.
  • When replaying a world in Midnight, you can choose to have Public Order deteriorate again.
  • Level sync selection feature added to missions from Testament of the Soul.
  • Two new Set Bonuses added to Midnight difficulty.
  • Addition of dojo training partners.
  • Add Martial Skill type bonus and raise limit of target score.

Gameplay Improvements

  • When equipped with the same weapon type on weapons 1 and 2, the number of styles can be expanded to a maximum of 6.
  • Changed the specifications so that special equipment will be given even if the player does not confess.
  • Changed the specifications so that greetings with characters after a breakup will return to normal over time.
  • Adjusted to make it easier for asynchronous characters to be selected.

Released earlier this year in March, the PS5 title from Team Ninja didn't exactly set the world on fire critically or commercially. While it's said to be selling better than the Nioh series, there's been little mention of it past launch. In our Rise of the Ronin PS5 review, we called it an "inferior version of everything it's inspired by". Does this update inspire you to boot the game up again? Let us know in the comments below.
