Sucker Punch has outlined a new patch coming later today for Ghost of Tsushima, where in addition to a new Lethal difficulty and a Lower Intensity Combat mode there are also some very welcome text changes coming. For those who grew up watching samurai flicks late at night on SBS, you'll be pleased to know that you can increase the subtitle size by 150% and change the colour to Yellow.

Also, Blue, Red, and Green. Here are the full patch notes - which should also please fans that were expecting a more hard-as-nails Souls-like experience.

New Difficulty Level: Lethal
    Enemy weapons are more deadly, but Jin’s katana is also more deadly
    Enemies are more aggressive in combat
    Enemies detect you faster
    Tighter Parry and Dodge windows

Patch 1.05 will also include the following new options in the accessibility menu:

Lower Intensity Combat

Lower intensity mode is meant to maintain the heart and feel of Ghost of Tsushima combat while relaxing several timing-specific elements. Combat is less intense, giving you more time to react. Stealth settings are more forgiving, and enemies take longer to detect you.
    Most enemy attacks which are normally unblockable become blockable when Lower Intensity is enabled. Blocking with L1 will keep you safe from more attacks than standard combat, though some attacks must still be dodged.
    Enemies break off their attack combos after damaging you, giving you a chance to recover before the next wave of attacks. In addition, your heavy attacks will interrupt attacks from Brutes, giving you another way to stop their combos.
    Enemies will not attack you while you’re using Resolve to heal
    Enemy awareness builds more slowly, giving you more time to recover after being spotted

Text Changes
    Large Text option: Increases text size of subtitles, mission objectives and interact prompts by 150% when enabled
    Added option to turn speaker name off when subtitles are enabled
    New subtitle text color options in addition to white: Yellow, Blue, Red, Green

Throw in some general bug fixes and this is a great update for what is a great samurai game - our full review here.

Well now I need to finish it, restart it at the higher level and turn on those subs. Might be the best reason to flick on Kurasawa film grain though
