Gameplay Trailer :


Name       Shadow of the Beast
Platform : PS4
Genre       : Adventure


Shadow of the Beast is a Platform video game currently under development by Heavy Spectrum Entertainment Labs, published by Sony Computer Entertainment and stated for release on PlayStation 4. It's a remake of the Shadow of the Beast video game series and considered as the fourth instalment.

The game follows the story of the original predecessor. Once again, players control Aarbron, who was kidnapped as a child and corrupted through magic into a monstrous warrior-servant. There are no details yet about the lord Maletoth or the fact that the creature's memory of his human life returned when he watched a man being executed, facts that occured in the first game.




Gameplay will combine Platform and Action elements, with the introduction of combos. Aarbron will have to beat his enemies by counter-attacking to strike them down and shield-wield foes that must be ducked behind in order to defeat them. During E3 2015 a gameplay video was introduced, in which Matt Birch, CEO of Heavy Spectrum Entertainment, showed a combat system which he mentioned as "brutal", while introducing the traditional health bar, combos through quick-time events and traps (even the original jet engines) inside dungeons. Graphics in this version appear to keep the parallax scrolling from the original title, now in 3D.



Shadow of the Beast was initially announced during Gamescom 2013 as a PS4 exclusive. The first trailer was revealed, among with the announcement of Heavy Spectrum Entertainment Labs as developer. On April 2014, when asked "Are there any of the team behind the 1989 game?" and particularly David Whittaker, composer of the original soundtrack and Roger Dean, the talent behind Shadow of the Beast's glorious cover art, Matt Bitch, developer's CEO, responded "The music, the art, they were really important to us, and we wanted to make sure we don't disappoint people."

Sony officially announced the first gameplay video during Electronic Entertainment Expo. A release date has not been yet confirmed.
