How to Fix the Ghost of Tsushima: Director’s Cut Ultrawide Cutscenes Issue on PC

The anti-cinema patch!

Ghost of Tsushima: Director’s Cut is one of the best PC ports by Nixxes Software so far, and has tons of features you’d expect from a modern PC release. It also has full support for ultrawide monitors during gameplay, but cutscenes have letterboxing which can get in the way of immersion. Thankfully, this neat patch from modder Lyall fixes those issues and removes the black borders from cutscenes.
