Today Sony Interactive Entertainment released a new video of the upcoming Shadow of The Colossus PS4 remaster.

The video features some awesome gameplay, and includes commentary from Bluepoint Games Art Director Mark Skelton, Co-Founder Marco Thrush, and Technical Director Peter Dalton as they explain how they improved the game’s graphics.

We hear how the environments have been completely remade from scratch taking the original game as a template, and how developers have strived to convey the massive scale of the vistas that we’ll experience.

Animation has also been redone, and many details that were not present in the original game have been added anew, making it up for things that simply weren’t technically possible back in 2005.

A completely new physics system has been added, involving things like the protagonist’s poncho and the tail of his horse.

Why Ratchet & Clank is the Most Important PS5 Game

You can enjoy the full video below, and compare it with your memories of this classic masterpiece. If you want to see more, you can also enjoy recent trailers and screenshots from Paris Games Week, more screenshots from Tokyo Game Show, another trailer from Tokyo, and the original announcement from E3.

Shadow of the Colossus will release exclusively for PS4 on February 6th, 2018.

Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
