Welcome to the Ghost of Tsushima – Iki Island DLC Trophy Guide! This guide includes both DLC trophy lists, which are split between “Story DLC” and “Exploration DLC”. Iki Island is the new DLC region in Ghost of Tsushima. You must have reached Region 2: Toyotama in the main game to access it. After installing the DLC you get a new Journal Entry in the pause menu and can track the first quest from there. Iki Island features 9 Main Tales, 7 Side Tales, 2 Mythic Tales, and various new Collectibles. It’s a relatively small region, about one third the size of a main game region (about a tenth of the main game map). 3-4 hours will go into the main story, 3 hours for side tales, 2 hours for Collectibles and miscellaneous trophies. With the PS5 Director’s Cut the DLC is preinstalled.
Importing Save from PS4 to PS5 Version & Automatically unlocking all Trophies
If you’ve already played the PS4 version, you can import your save into the PS5 version and it will automatically unlock all trophies, except the trophy for using photo mode (which only takes 1 second to do). Legends Mode trophies and New Game+ trophy automatically unlock too. You can import the save from the title screen either via USB or via PS+ Cloud. Everything carries over from the PS4 version and you get an instant PS5 platinum. However, it is NOT possible to import from PS5 > PS4 (only works from PS4 > PS5). If you are a first time player and haven’t played through the main game at all, refer to the Ghost of Tsushima (Main Game) Trophy Guide & Roadmap.
Step 1: Finish the Story [3-4 Hours]
Start by playing through the Iki Island story. The story consists of 9 Main Tales and takes about 3-4 hours total including all dialogues and cutscenes. There’s nothing to look out for, just have fun and feel free to do any Collectibles and Side Tales you see along the way. You can still do everything after the story. Nothing is missable and there are no difficulty-related trophies.
After installing the Iki Island DLC and loading your save, there should be a popup saying that new content is available. Then you press Options-Button > Journal > Tales of Iki and track the first quest “Journey into the Past” from there. You must have reached Region 2: Toyotama in the main game to access this first quest! If you don’t get the new quest, try rebooting your game and it should fix it.
Step 2: Conquer All 4 Enemy Camps to Unfog the entire Map [30 Minutes]
After the story you’ll want to conquer the 4 Enemy Camps for trophy “The Butcher Redeemed” to drive out the Mongol invaders. This will also unfog the map completely, which marks all Collectibles and Tales as “?” question marks. This makes it easier to find your way around and saves time in the next step.
Step 3: Collectibles & Tales [5 Hours]
As with the main game, you can use the guiding wind to lead you to the Collectibles. On the world map press and track the Collectible Type. You can buy new wind upgrades under Techniques > Samurai > Exploration. Some Collectibles require wearing the Traveler’s Attire to be able to track them (bought from merchants, e.g. this one, should already have it if you finished the main game).
Here are all the completion-tasks you need for trophies:
- 7 Side Tales
- 2 Mythic Tales
- 6 Unwritten Tales
- 9 Animal Sanctuaries
- 8 Archery Challenges
- 5 Memories of Your Father
- 3 Haiku
- 2 Hot Springs (Onsen)
- 1 Shinto Shrine
- 4 Bamboo Strikes

Main Game Trophy Guide:

It’s best to play through the Main Tales first, then you’ll have access to everything. Next you should conquer the 4 enemy outposts (see trophy “The Butcher Redeemed“) which unfogs the map and marks collectibles / side tales with “?” question mark icons. The only ones that don’t show on the map are A Mother’s Law & A Helping Hand. So if you’re missing something it’s likely those two.
