Shadow of the Colossus 2018 info:-
Shadow of the Colossus 2018 is a remake of the original game of the same name by Bluepoint Games for the Playstation 4. The remake was first revealed at E3 2017. Rather than being a remaster, the 2018 game is a complete remake from the ground up with high-definition art assets and an updated control scheme, while still retaining the same gameplay as the original. The Digital Deluxe version gives the previously-mentioned items, but also gives various new items such as the Spotted Steed costume for Agro, the Ancient Bow, the Cloak of Fate, and Steelbook.
What do we call Shadow of the Colossus, the soup-to-nuts update of Fumito Ueda’s 2005 masterpiece of the same name: a reboot, a remaster, a remake? The project from Austin, Texas-based Bluepoint Games warrants all of those labels on paper, at least. In action, though, this Colossus is very much its own uncanny thing. Like dreaming about a childhood vacation, it feels real, and yet, slightly askew. Sure, the Shadow of the Colossus of 2018 isn’t technically the same as the Shadow of the Colossus of 2005, but it comes so close — what’s the harm of preferring the newer, prettier version?
Shadow of the Colossus 2018 Gameplay:-
The gameplay is nearly identical to the original version of the game, aside from reworked controls. Progression through Shadow of the Colossus occurs in cycles. Beginning at a central point in a landscape, the player seeks out and defeats a colossus, and is then returned to the central point to repeat the process. Most colossi are located in remote areas, such as atop cliffs or within ancient structures. Players are able to choose from several options when playing the game. On a standard PlayStation 4, the game runs at 30 frames per second at a 1080p resolution. On a PlayStation 4 Pro, the game can run either at a 1440p resolution (upscaled to 4K) at 30 frames per second, or at 60 frames per second at 1080p. Shadow of the Colossus received “universal acclaim” reviews from critics, according to review aggregator Metacritic. Brett Makedonski’s 10/10 score on Destructoid stated that “Nothing in this entire game is forgettable.
For a game predicated on methodically finding and exposing these creatures’ weak points, you’d be hard-pressed to find a weak point throughout the entire experience. Nick Plessas’s score of 8.5/10 on EGMNow said that “Remakes can seem like the low-hanging fruit of game development, but Bluepoint does Shadow of the Colossus justice with an evolution of the classic game that improves the overall experience while maintaining its familiar spirit. The game received acclaim from critics, who praised it for preserving the feel of the original while vastly improving graphics, performance, and updating the control scheme. However, minor criticism was given to the gameplay and camera, which some felt should have been improved. Please See More Information…….
Shadow of the Colossus 2018 Development:-
Sony announced a remake of Shadow of the Colossus for the PlayStation 4 during their Electronic Entertainment Expo 2017 press conference. The remake is led by Bluepoint, who developed the earlier PlayStation 3 remaster. The idea for a remake came after a conversation Bluepoint developers had. They wanted to create a new definitive version of the original game, and after speaking with friends at Sony Japan, they were on the same page as Bluepoint. Bluepoint producer Randall Lowe and technical director Peter Dalton stated in an interview with Game Informer that the original Shadow of the Colossus is on many of their employees’ Top 5 of all-time list.
The developers remade all the game’s assets from the ground up, but the game retains the same gameplay from the original title along with the introduction of a new control scheme. The game uses the original codebase from the PlayStation 2 game. The art staff used the PlayStation 2 version to create parity with the PlayStation 4 version. The game was released on February 6, 2018 in North America, February 7 in Europe, Australia and New Zealand, and February 8 in Japan. Tom Hurley from GamesRadar+ gave the game a score of 4 out of 5 stars saying that “Both a great remaster and an enjoyable ‘new’ game in its own right that takes you on a journey in a way few things can.
” 9.7/10 was Marty Sliva’s score on IGN with the summary: “Shadow of the Colossus on PS4 is a stunning return to the classic that wowed us in 2005.” It sold 21,900 copies on PlayStation 4 within its first week on sale in Japan, which placed it at number 2 on the all format sales chart. The game was nominated for “PlayStation Game of the Year” at the Golden Joystick Awards, and won the Freedom Tower Award for Best Remake at the New York Game Awards.
