One of PlayStation's best games is getting an insane-looking remake on the PlayStation 4

In 2018, the best game from 2005 arrives on the PlayStation 4. It’s called “Shadow of the Colossus,” and it’s getting a gorgeous remake on the PlayStation 4.

When the game originally launched on the PlayStation 2 in 2005, it was a revelation for PlayStation 2 owners. 

Though it may look like a standard video game, “Shadow of the Colossus” is anything but — the character you see above is who you play as, and he’s got an objective: Take down gigantic monsters.

Unfortunately, saying much more about the mysterious world and creatures of “Shadow of the Colossus” could give away far too much about the game’s uniquely emotional story. Instead, let’s focus on how you take down these beasts — that’s a measure of climbing them, and then literally stabbing them to death.

You may be picking up some of those emotional undertones already — the monsters are ugly, but seemingly adorable. And why are you murdering them? That’s unclear.

What is clear right now is that the remake of “Shadow of the Colossus” on PlayStation 4 is an outrageously pretty game and, if the original is anything to go by, we’re expecting it will be a pretty great game to play as well. Check out the latest trailer for “Shadow of the Colossus” on PlayStation 4 right here:

The game isn’t expected to launch until some point in 2018; when it does, it will be a PlayStation 4 exclusive.
