Konami of Europe has announced recently that Silent Hill 3 will be released in Europe on May 23. This will come before the North American and Japanese release, which is scheduled for August. The only explanation Konami gave was “business reasons” and we find it rather difficult to understand what business it is speaking of. At any rate, Silent Hill 3 allows players to take control of a woman named Heather, who journeys through a town only to be greeted by mysterious and creepy creatures. An entirely new engine has been constructed by the development team, as Konami promises highly detailed character models and environments. The surround sound experience will also be imitated by various sound technologies.
We’ll have more about Silent Hill 3 in the near future.
