Fans looking forward to the eighth game in the famed Silent Hill franchise, Silent Hill: Downpour, have a good reason to be excited today as we’ve nailed down some details and screenshots for you guys!
Said to be the largest Silent Hill game yet, Silent Hill: Downpour will require the gamer to use the game’s subway system (stench of hobo piss not included) as a means to get around! The psychological profiling aspect of the series, which first appeared in Silent Hill: Shattered Memories, is back, and as you’ll see from the E3 2010 announcement trailer below, everything is looking appropriately spooky!
From the Press Release
KONAMI has released the first screenshots from the highly anticipated survival horror game, Silent Hill: Downpour. Making its return to “next generation” consoles this fall, Silent Hill: Downpour will bring a completely original storyline and all-new haunting soundtrack as players find themselves stranded in the foggy, malevolent world of Silent Hill.
Silent Hill: Downpour starts as Murphy Pendleton, the game’s main character, finds himself lost and alone in the woods after his prison transport bus crashes near the town of Silent Hill. What happens after is up to the player as they traverse an all-new Silent Hill environment that is expansive, yet claustrophobic. And though this sleepy town may feel desolate, the player is never truly alone.
Screenshots show highly detailed environments of the new Silent Hill, where seedy pasts and uncertain futures unify to create a terrifying present. Included within is a sneak preview of the town as well as two all-new environments: The Diner and The Devil’s Pit.
Silent Hill: Downpour is scheduled to be released in fall 2011 on the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system.
Look for more on this game soon!
