In a post on PlayStation Blog, art director at Bluepoint Games Mark Skelton reveals a new Photo Mode for the Shadow of the Colossus remake. For a game with a style like Shadow of the Colossus, a handy Photo Mode is certainly a great inclusion to have.
Mark discusses elements of the Photo Mode:
As we rebuilt the visuals for the game from the ground up (literally), one of the things we decided we had to include was a Photo Mode. We found ourselves spending more and more time with Photo Mode as the system took shape, grabbing photos we thought captured moments that were unique and awe-inspiring. Take a look below at some of the photos the Bluepoint team captured during development.
The thing that makes Photo Mode stand out is its power and flexibility. It’s an entire photo adjustment suite built into the game for you! Everything that I had access to as the Art Director, you have access to as the player. 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.
Check out the PlayStation Blog for more information on other adjustments you can make to your photo collection. You can even leave the various visual filters on while you play the game.
Shadow of the Colossus will release on February 6, 2018. You can find more information about PlayStation 4 Pro enhancements here.
