Ghost of Tsushima’s version 1.1 update will bring with it New Game+ and the co-op Legends mode, but now we know what may very well be its most important addition – the Charm of Canine Recruitment that will let you pet dogs and turn them into allies a.k.a. your new best friend.
Announced by developer Sucker Punch on Twitter, this Charm of Canine Recruitment will unfortunately only be available in New Game+, but those looking forward to Ghost of Tsushima: Legends will be happy to know you will be able to pet the spirit dogs.

During the main game players were able to pet Foxes, and had done so 8.8 million times within two weeks of Ghost of Tsushima’s release on July 17, 2020.
This wonderful news is another cherry on top for the version 1.1 update that will add Ghost of Tsushima: Legends for all owners of the base game for free. This new, online cooperative multiplayer experience will feature two-player story missions and four-player survival missions, as well as a raid that will be released “weeks following launch.”
There will also be more to do and gain in New Game+ besides making dogs your new best friend, including all players having access to a New Game+ horse, other new Charms, and a Ghost Flower merchant that will allow you to exchange Ghost Flowers for Charms, new armor dyes, and other vanity gear that can only be found in New Game+.
