Shadow of the Colossus: news and videos

Shadow of the Colossus

Built-in capturing and streaming and photo modes continue to be a highlight for me this console generation. Some games benefit from the latter more than others and I'd say Bluepoint's Shadow of the Colossus remake for PlayStation 4 definitely falls into the "highly photogenic" group.

"Everything that I had access to as the Art Director, you have access to as the player [in the new photo mode]," says Bluepoint's Mark Skelton. "You can start with a filter and adjust all the way down to color balancing the shadows, midtones and highlights. Then on top of that, control the depth of field ranges and amounts, in addition to the vignette. That's an amazing amount of control."

He also notes that you can play Shadow of the Colossus with "some of the filters running," so even if you aren't into taking pretty pictures per se, there's a reason to dig into this particular photo mode.

I hadn't realized this was out quite so soon (February 6!) and now I'm extra stoked.
