Shadow of the Colossus has had a big showing at PSX this year. With the release date of February 6th fast approaching, we now know there will be a Special Edition along with how the game will be supported on the PS4 Pro!
First, if you play the game on a PS4 Pro, you’ll have two mode options at your disposal to go along with the increased fidelity:
- Cinematic, which emphasizes image quality, and for owners of compatible 4K HDR displays, boasts a beautiful dynamic 4K image targeting 30 fps.
- Performance, which delivers an extremely fluid frame rate targeting 60 fps.
You can see some of this in action via these videos posted by the official PlayStation page:
Second, if you’re a big fan of the game, a special edition is on the way as well! It will include a Steelbook Collector’s Case with outer sleeve, Artist Postcards, Printed Manual, In-game Digital Extras (Ancient Bow, Cloak of Fate, “Spotted Steed” Agro skin), Two Custom PS4 Themes, Colossi Avatar Set for PS4, Physical World Map, and Colossi Stickers. It will retail for $49.99.
Shadow of the Colossus is a beloved title and it’s great to see it getting the complete overhaul treatment. The differences, especially on the PS4 Pro, look fantastic. If you’ve never played the title, it looks like this will be the definitive way to do so.
