Here's Seven Minutes Of Shadow Of The Colossus On PS4 Pro

When it was originally released in 2005 on the Playstation 2, Fumito Ueda's Shadow of the Colossus was a technically ambitious game.

The game revolves around a sword-wielding hero named Wander on his quest to resurrect a young woman by travelling on horseback across the vast "Forbidden Land" killing 16 giant colossi. The game has new textures and animations that make it look great, as well as 4K HDR support for people with 4K TVs and PS4 Pros.

PS4 Pro owners without a 4K TV can also run it at 60 fps in "performance" mode. This is great for those of you who've wanted to revisit the game in 4K or for first-time players looking to see what all the hype is about. You can see seven minutes of the remake in action in the video above.

    What an absolute masterpiece this game was.

      I never played it so i really cant comment. But that video looked pretty .... boring

        I get that - it's not much of a game to watch. Although SotC, it's like a rollercoaster. You only really understand the experience by strapping yourself in and going for the ride. Kind of like Journey.
        If there is one game I can recommend anyone to play from the PS2 era, this is the one.
        Highly recommend you pick it up if you have a PS4.
        (Comment below meant in reply to you)

        As a fan, that's actually a fair observation, the video does little to highlight why SotC is so popular and unique.

        The game is mostly a visual experience with very little dialogue, you are essentially given some basic instructions and then you are left alone to figure out the rest, from path finding to battle.
        (For example and not giving too much away, you figure out how to ride your horse pretty easy, the range of techniques and tricks you find are never taught to you, they are found through experimentation, necessity and even by accident)

        It's an adventure epic that's hides a very complex and unorthodox puzzle game that never feels like a puzzle and leaves much of the story to your own interpretation and you never feel there is nothing to do because something will always catch your eye and peak your curiosity.

        My only complaint is I've played this too many times and I really shouldn't buy a third copy of the game....

          i do love visual experiences. The new zelda was exactly that.

          You know you'll buy it again. Don't fight it, just let it happen.

    This and Vagrant Story remain the only 2 games I ever wanted remastered. I cant wait to play this all over again!

    Sigh.... this is definitely one of those times again where I wish there were no exclusives. This and of course Ico were brilliant and the first real artistic/deeper meaning games with high production values that came out. I have recently moved so i know longer have access to my flatmates ps4. Oh the bitter sweet melancholy of being an Xbox peasant lol
