Shadow of the Beast Out Today on PS4

We’ve reached the end of what has been, for us, an epic journey. Our take on the classic action-adventure game Shadow of the Beast is finally launching on PS4 today!

The wonderful people at Sony have created a new trailer for our game, pulling together some of the thoughts shared by people who’ve previewed the game and editing them with some great footage of it in motion. It’s a wonderful (and humbling) way to celebrate the launch of our labor of love:

Shadow of the Beast Out Today on PS4

We’ve packed everything we can into it — a deep combat system, a mysterious world to explore, lots of secrets to uncover, the entire original game, a whole heap of Easter Eggs for fans, and hopefully a few memorable moments for everyone!

After three years, it’s strange to have reached a point where we can’t add any more. We’re not a big team and we know it’s taken us a long time to get here, but I can genuinely say we’ve done everything we were able to. We hope the result is something that people will enjoy spending time playing; and that the dedicated will savor the challenge of mastering the game’s subtleties and uncovering all of its secrets!

We urge those who’ve pre-ordered the game to give the Roger Dean dynamic Theme that is included a try; it was such a wonderful thing to make as fans and we’re really proud of the result. If you want to immerse yourselves even further in the game’s universe, and maybe take it with you on the move, you can buy the Original Soundtrack which Sony will release on PlayStation Store today as well!

Thank you for all the support on our journey, and we hope those who choose to play the game enjoy what we’ve made.

Thank you,
Matt and the Team at Heavy Spectrum

    So many games! I want to buy this so bad as it looks brutally beautiful! Just found out that Steamworld Heist is out on 5/31! Going to have to pick them both up after I finish Uncharted 4 and DOOM. I thought the fall was the time for games but it is looking like Spring has something to say about that!

    cannot wait to play this today! this and DOOM will be my jams since Uncharted sucked so bad. zoinks, yo.

  • this game will be mine. just need to save a bit more. :P

  • Looking forward to play Shadow of the Beast game looks really great…if I were not playing so many games at the moment I would definitely pre-order.And I’m one of those dedicated,be glad to enjoy your game to its full extent.

    Great job Heavy Spectrum…that’s how it’s done.

    • Buy it. Your gonna want this one. I preordered, Yes I paid for this one. I’ve been waiting for this one ever since previewing it at 2015-e3. These guys are bound by a lifetime of being real gamers. Now they are truly sowing off some insane talent in game devs.

  • As my friend above says way to go. Graphically superb.Game play non stop action. Story is compellingly awesome.And very sad but excellent.You have hit it with special moves and so many kiling styles it just rates at the highest in gamers demands in new gen games. Great job thank you for your hard work. From your customer ambassador to the PSN . PSN ID: bombbreath

    EVERYONE BUY THIS GAME!!!! AMAZEBALLS! I had the original on the Amiga when I was 12 in 1989 (which is included)! Its worth it for soundtracks alone, but its a GREAT game, bargain at $20.

    I’ve been playing the game for a while now and it’s an brutal experience!

    I love the challenging combat, environment, and storyline towards it. I hope for a DLC or any other game like this to be made again :)
