Bluepoint Games Shows off Stunning Opening for Shadow of the Colossus Remake

Bluepoint Games has debuted the opening scene for their Shadow of the Colossus Remake, and its pretty stunning.

Sony Interactive Entertainment and Bluepoint Games have teamed up to remake Shadow of the Colossus for PS4. We’ve seen snippets of the game at various game conferences, but we’ve never heard from the developers themselves. Well, that all changes with a new commentary Sony has released. In it, Bluepoint Games’ Mark Skelton, Marco Thrush, and Peter Dalton walk us through the opening scene of the game, highlighting many of the game’s improvements.

Originally developed for the PS2, Shadow of the Colossus’ epic vision was held back by the technical limitations of the console. Thanks to the enhanced power of the PS4, Bluepoint Games is capable of producing some technical wonders. Water ripples, advanced animations, increased levels of geometry, foliage dispersion, and many other technical advancements are employed to bring the world to life all while maintaining the original’s sense of wonder and mystery.

Shadow of the Colossus is out February 6 on PS4. The game will appear at PlayStation Experience, which takes place December 9 and 10.
