Check out Nightdive and Valiant’s Shadowman remaster

Out with the old, in with the all-new Deadside. Well, maybe not all new, but you get the idea. Comparison shots are here for the Shadowman remaster.

Out from the shadows

Announced some time ago by Nightdive Studios, the remake of the 90s Shadowman video game is finally ready to be shown off. The game plays off of the Valiant Comics superhero, though more or less does so to create its own thing.

Shadowman doesn’t exactly look like the comic book version of the character. But even so, many of the same elements are present in this third-person action title.

And form the looks of the new screens, there’s a pretty sharp difference between the N64-era title and Nightdive’s modern work.

Have a peek:

As you can see, it’s very much the same game, but Nightdive has improved upon that 1999 edition considerably. The game no offers a host of new features, including 4K, HDR support, and gameplay adjustments.

In all, you’ll find:

  • 4K widescreen display
  • Dynamic shadow mapping
  • Dynamic per-pixel lighting
  • Antialiasing, and other post-process effects
  • Higher density of particle effects
  • Refined art, audio, and assets
  • Refined gameplay experience
  • Reintroduction of missing content cut from the original game
  • Xbox, PS4, Controller Pro support with dual analog stick control
  • HDR Rendering

So, with all that said, when’s the launch? Well, there isn’t an announcement for that just yet. Nightdive does say that you can expect to see the game hits consoles and the PC some time in 2021 though. So stay tuned.

And in the meantime, check out the addition comparison shots below.
