Shadow of the Colossus for PlayStation 4 is the second remaster of a game that first debuted on PlayStation 2 in 2005 and then was ported to PlayStation 3 in 2011. The new version was announced during the E3 2017. The main change in comparison to previous editions is much better graphics.
In the PlayStation 4 version of Shadow of the Colossus the player assumes the role of a young man named Wander. He enters the forbidden lands on the back of his horse named Agro. He travels through the beautiful and dangerous areas in search of a mythical altar hidden in the wild, where he intends to place the body of his beloved Mono. Once he succeeds, a mysterious voice informs him that the soul of the girl is imprisoned in this spectacular realm. The protagonist will be able to restore the life of his beloved if he manages to defeat 16 giant beasts known as the Colossuses.
The gameplay mechanics feature exploration of a large and unknown realm in search for colossuses the player will have to face in a battle of life and death. The duels won’t be easy as the Colossuses can run, jump, swim, fly or throw parts of their surroundings. Each battle requires the player to use a different tactic, focused primarily on finding the weak points of his opponent. Some Colossuses are resistant to specific weapon types; other must be cut to pieces or hit in a specific place in order to be defeated. The protagonist is well trained in the art of using various weapons. He can climb on the Colossuses and on the environment, shoot with a bow, use a sword and lure enemies into traps. He can also count on his loyal horse that has advanced artificial intelligence and will frequently save Wander.
