The forthcoming Shadow of the Colossus remake has some colour filters for you to mess about with, and they really make a difference.
It is part of the game’s photo mode, which, given how beautiful the remaster is looking, will probably eat into your time.
There are more than a dozen filters for you to play around with – from ‘mono’, and ‘cool’, ‘warm’ to ‘woodland’. What’s great is how they affect the mood of the environment as you roam about the world. There is also a film grain setting so you can capture shots in style while you stalk the colossi.
Take a look at this video from PlayStation Europe, in which Art Director Mark Skelton goes into detail on the mode:
As you can see, there are a lot more options there, with a vignette mode that allows you to darken the corners, framing options, camera rotation, and colour intensity sliders.
He signs at the end by saying, “The community will do things with it that we had never thought about… I can’t wait for that to happen.”
He won’t have to wait too much longer either: Shadow of the Colossus is due out on February 6th, just under two weeks away!

We have a favour to ask
Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
