In 1999, the original Shadow Man was released for multiple platforms, and last year Shadow Man Remastered was revealed. The release of the game has arrived for PC, and with it comes a launch trailer for fans' viewing pleasure.
Nightdive Studios' action-adventure is an upgrade to the original, and the new trailer shows that. Shadow Man Remastered will come with 4k support, and it will restore cut content from the original. Many fans have eagerly awaited the release of this remaster as soon as the announcement was made, so today's release of the PC version of the game is very exciting.
Recent Shadow Man Remastered images and gameplay details helped paint the picture for what to expect, but the launch trailer that comes with the PC release of the game does even more to showcase the apocalyptic cult classic. Shadow Man Remastered comes with three new levels, remastered audio and sound effects, HD textures, 4K resolution, icon and HUD improvements, over 30 achievements, fresh weapons, new enemies, dynamic lighting, shadow mapping, secrets, and more. The PC version of the game is available now. Meanwhile, a console version of Shadow Man Remastered will be available sometime later in 2021.
At a glance, Shadow Man Remastered may not look as impressive as some of the more recent callbacks to games of its era, as the full-blown remakes that are built from the ground up (Final Fantasy 7 Remake, for example) can certainly be more visually impressive. However, Nightdive Studios seems to have added quite a few extra details to the game that fans will appreciate.
The first quarter of 2021 is coming to a close, and traditionally, it's one of the slowest times for new video game releases. New game releases should start heating up over the next few months before slowing down again in the summertime, and it looks like April is getting the second quarter started off with a bang.
April 2021 will consist of a variety of major new video game releases, including Outriders from People Can Fly, New Pokemon Snap on the Nintendo Switch, and the PlayStation 5 exclusive Returnal. There should be something to look forward to for players on all consoles, and it will definitely be interesting to see which game comes out of April as the most popular new release of the month.
April is kicking off with a bang. People Can Fly's Outriders is a new third-person shooter/RPG hybrid with a focus on co-op gameplay and the promise of providing players with a complete experience at launch instead of being yet another live service title. The Outriders demo has been met with enthusiasm by the community, and it will be interesting to see if that enthusiasm translates to strong sales for the game. Outriders will also be available through Xbox Game Pass on launch day, which should ensure that it has an even bigger community of players than it would have otherwise.
Oddworld: New 'n Tasty remade the original Oddworld game for modern audiences, and now Oddworld: Soulstorm is set to do the same for the sequel. Instead of being a straight remake of Oddworld: Abe's Exoddus, Oddworld: Soulstorm is more like a re-imagining, making some major gameplay changes when compared to the 1998 original. The dark humor and grittiness of the Oddworld franchise should still be intact, plus the game is an absolute stunner on PlayStation 5. And speaking of PS5, Oddworld is a free PS Plus game for April 2021, so subscribers will be able to add it to their digital collections at no extra charge.
