From PS2 to PS4 – how Shadow of the Colossus has changed

News PlayStation Trailers

Shadow of the Colossus is headed to PS4 on February 7, 2018 and will mean the title will have graced three of SONY’s four machines. Released way back in October, 2005, the PS4 version has been rebuilt from the ground up by Bluepoint Games and JAPAN Studio.

SHADOW OF THE COLOSSUS is a breathtaking journey through ancient lands to seek out gigantic beasts. Armed with only a sword and a bow, explore the spacious lands and unearth each Colossus, presenting a unique challenge to test your wits, determination, and skill.

In the below trailer watch as the game has evolved from PS2 through to PS3 then onto the PS4 with better graphics and more power to produce an enhanced experience. The draw distance and depth of the texture work looks breathtaking – and we all know how awesome Shadow of the Colossus is – but is three times the remaster a little too much or is it third time’s the charm?

I've been gaming for longer than I care to remember and spent four years writing for another XCN website leading a 10 strong team. Now I'm in charge of TiX alongside Dave Moran – I hope you enjoy what we do!
