At the Sony E3 2017 press conference, the company announced that a remake (or remastered version) of the beloved adventure game Shadow of the Colossus is in the works for PS4. It is scheduled for launch in early 2018.
It was announced with a beautiful gameplay trailer that shows just how far video game visuals have come since the PS2 era. The game appears from the video to have many of its graphical and performance hitches evened out, in addition to sporting quite the overhaul in appearance.
But everything you remember from the game is still there: colossi, exploration, Wander, and Argo the horse. But after you play this, I'm guessing that you won't be able to go back to the original. Sony didn't say anything else about the remake, so we don't know how extensive the changes are. But we'll be bringing you everything we learn in the upcoming days about the game. It's in development at Bluepoint Games, which previously worked on Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection.
This isn't the first makeover that Shadow of the Colossus has received; an updated version was released on the PS3 back in 2011. You can follow along with the Sony press conference in our liveblog, and you can see everything from E3 2017 at our hub.
