The single-player horror survival game played from the third-person perspective is yet to receive an official release date, but as always, we’ll keep you updated as more details are announced and confirmed by Konami and Bloober.
“One of our main goals is to preserve the atmosphere that created it Silent Hill 2 so exceptional, while at the same time modernizing many aspects of the game’s overall gameplay. We work closely with the original creators, including Akira Yamaoka and Masahiro Ito, to ensure we keep the unique Silent Hill feel intact. One of the new elements you could spot in the reveal trailer is the introduction of an over-the-shoulder camera. With this change, we want to further immerse players in the game, make them feel like part of this unreal world, and give them a more immersive experience across the board.
“Most importantly, we will take the Silent Hill franchise to new heights alongside longtime Silent Hill fans and new fans who want to be.”
“After receiving a letter from his late wife, James heads to where they shared so many memories, hoping to see them again: Silent Hill. There, by the lake, he finds a woman who is eerily similar to her… “My name… is Maria,” the woman smiles. Her face, her voice… She’s just like them. Experience a masterclass in psychological survival horror – hailed as the best in the series – on the latest hardware with terrifying graphics and visceral sound.”
