Gaming News:Sony Unveils Shadow of the Beast Remake's Release Date

Recommended Posts



Teased way back in the days of 2013, the remake of the 1989 Amiga classic Shadow of the Beast has resurfaced. The Sony-published title puts players in control of Aarbron, a beast on a quest of bloody vengeance on a distant, magical world.


However, a number of features have been outlined that weren't known before. The game touts a smooth 60 frames-per-second and the team at Heavy Spectrum is working hard to make sure that the response time allows for the most enjoyable experience. The world of Karamoon features a variety of environments (not just the desert many might remember from the teaser!) and a wide variety of creatures to fight. The remake includes a robust upgrade tree and a variety of artifacts that will allow players to gain the upper hand in combat.


Matt Birch, founder of Heavy Spectrum, also talks about the challenges of managing difficulty. There are easier modes that will allow players to explore the combat  system and experience the story, but Birch says the true difficulty is Beast mode.



Shadow of the Beast hits the PSN for the PlayStation 4 on May 17.
