Photo modes are quickly becoming the most advanced feature of most video games. Aside from nVidia recent announcement about the instagrammification of gaming, Sony has now revealed Shadow of the Colossus' photo mode which will surely spawn a new kind of fantasy tourism. The upcoming PS4 remake will include, among other things, a versatile photo mode equipped with filters, color balancing, midtones and highlights, vignette, depth of field ranges and much more. As Mark Skelton, Art Director, Bluepoint Games explains
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! [...] Adjusting the camera to get that perfect shot is super easy. Being able to switch the camera from the player to the horse offers up a ton of possibilities. Letting the team loose with it was incredible. The amount of different looks you can achieve is limitless. To top it off, being able to rotate the camera 90 degrees either way to generate portrait images means that lots of photos will be used as cell phone wallpapers! That’s not all: you’re able to leave some of the filters running as you play, giving you exciting degrees of control over how the game looks in motion.
