Shadow of the Colossus emerged as a truly colossal hit when it was first launched for PlayStation 2. Later, the developers gave it an additional layer of graphical rendering for PS3. But the PS4 version is a totally remade game.

The colossi that fight in the game have been retained from the previous versions. At heart, even the game stays the same. But the tile looks nifty fresh in 60fps and throws up some stunning graphics. The developers have also rethought the control method and camera angles. The frame rate will never suffer irrespective of the size of your enemies in the battle.

Beyond Good and Evil 2

Game Publisher Ubisoft

Available for PS4, PC, Xbox One

Many have patiently waited for Beyond Good and Evil 2. That is because the first installment of the game was released no less than 15 years ago. You play the game in another world setting. Lots of different species find themselves busy with chirpy interactions.

And there’s a lot of diversity. You can tell that just by the accent of the characters in the trailer. The action in the game aspires to involve a lot of humoristic elements as well. It is either set to a great sleeper hit or an instant one. This game is already making headlines!

Death Stranding

Game Publisher Sony Interactive Entertainment

So, the brutal split between Kojima and former employer Konami has something good to offer after all. Kojima is back with his own Kojima Productions. And Sony Interactive Entertainment is happily publishing their game Death Stranding. Not many know what they should exactly expect from this video game.

As of now, they are wrapping the game with secret tapes galore. The hype for the game is building up even as you read. But since they start with a verse by William Blake, we can be sure there is some sort of transcendence between the microcosm and the macrocosm.

Detroit: Become Human

Available for PS4 only

Detroit: Become Human is for those who like to keep their options for the narrative open. Developed by Quantic Dream, the neo-noir thriller is set in the future. At one point, players will be able to control three different and apparently independent characters. One of these is Kara, an android who has escaped the factory of production.

Connor, another android is tasked with hunting down rogue androids. You will also be in charge of Markus. This is also an android – one who has started a revolution against humans. The game looks like it will be mostly about choices. The better you handle them, the more your chances of winning.

God of War

Game Publisher Sony Interactive Entertainment
Releasing 2018
Available for PS4 only

We cannot think of saying something about God of War that you might not already know. The famous video game franchise got a head start back when PlayStation 2 was in its prime. The new title for PS4 is more of a reboot to the franchise in a way that many had perhaps not expected.

In the new installment, Kratos moves on from Greek mythology and moves on to Norse. Along with Kratos, his son Atreus will be a major point of focus in the game. The boy’s mother has passed away recently. An older Kratos and his son will definitely make the game a lot more interesting!

Anthem

Game Publisher EA

There are monsters. There are robots. And there are missions. That sums up the third-person gameplay of Anthem. Players get javelin exo-suites to complete missions. These suits give them superhuman powers. You can customize these suits to look and play any way you want.

For a brief moment, Anthem will remind you of Iron Man from another planet. The environment is pretty hostile, but your chances of survival are high thanks to this immense suit! You can team up with other players to make sure missions finish easier and with less damage. You can even rescue your friends if you arrive in time when they have incoming.

Metro: Exodus

Game Publisher Deep Silver
Releasing 2018
Available for PS4, PC, Xbox One

Metro: Last Light was a pioneer of post-apocalyptic thrill. We were delighted to hear the news of Metro: Exodus going under development. We haven’t heard a complaint about the stunning visuals of the game. It also has its fair share of scares for both old and new players.

We must warn you. There is a limited supply of ammo in this man-versus-monster game. It can get pretty lonely in a dying world. You will have to put your best game forward to win a chance of survival. The environment will lend you occasional assistance in your fight. You can see why the latest Metro seems to be one of the best upcoming PS4 games.
