Shadow of the Colossus has made a big comeback with the PS4 remake, which was made possible by Sony and Bluepoint Games. Along with the completely redone visuals that are leaps and bounds ahead of the PS2 original, the developer has also updated the control scheme to attempt to make things a bit easier. However, hardcore fans will be happy to know that there is a way to switch back to the classic control scheme, and this guide will show you how.
Switching the control scheme in Shadow of the Colossus requires you to hit the Options button while in-game and then navigate to Settings, or just go to Settings from the main menu. Once there, you then need to select Controls to be given a display of the game’s current control scheme. The default control scheme will display as “Modern”, but you can cycle through the options to get three different ones: Modern Remapped, Classic or Classic Remapped.
Of course, the type of player that you are will dictate which control scheme you ultimately decide on. However, for those of you who would like to play the game how you did back on the PS2, this will be the way to do it. The game offers a decent challenge, so making sure that you have the control scheme that works best for you is essential.
That’s all you need to know about switching up the control scheme in Shadow of the Colossus on PS4, so play around with what works best for you and then take down some colossi.
