Shadow of the Colossus on PS4 is an excellent way for longtime fans to experience the game in a brand new way, or for newcomers to see what all the fuss is about. Of course, when booting up any new game the player is typically wondering how long it takes to beat the game. This guide will get you up to speed regarding how long it will take you to get through the game.
Those who played through Shadow of the Colossus on PS2 will have a pretty good idea of how long it will take to beat the game on PS4, as this is a very faithful remake of the original. There has been no new content added to the game, as it is instead focused on overhauling the visuals and tweaking the controls. While overall playtime will vary from player to player, you will likely end up spending around 8-10 hours with the game when all is said and done.
How Many Colossi Are There?
Much of your time in the game will be spent taking down the massive bosses called Colossi, of which there are 16 to battle. However, battling colossi won’t be the only thing that the player will be doing in the game, as they also have the option to explore the game’s world and search for fruit and lizards. There is also a Time Attack mode, Reminisce mode and a Hard mode, so completionists can easily find themselves spending at least double the amount of time mentioned previously.
