E3 2010: New Silent Hill Revealed
Say it with me, survival/horror fans: "aw, hell yeah!"
The critically acclaimed franchise is coming back: Konami has announced Silent Hill 8 (a working title), which is scheduled to freak out both PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 owners next year. Rather than drastically altering the formula that made this series so successful, the developers will stay true to the Silent Hill roots. We'll get a third-person adventure where we must face the freakiest, most dreaded parts of human emotion and psyche. The argument rages over which series - Resident Evil or the franchise in question - is better, but for now, let's just revel in the announcement. Said President of Konami Entertainment, Shinji Hirano:
"In honoring the rich history and strong following of Silent Hill, we're working hard to build a next generation horror game that the fans truly deserve. This Silent Hill introduces an all-new storyline and unique evolutions in gameplay, building on innovations and successes from over a decade of true survival horror and terror."
This new story begins after a prison transport vehicle crashes, leaving inmate Murphy Pendleton stranded in the mysterious, potentially deadly town of Silent Hill. Players will encounter new puzzles and nightmarish creatures, and you'll have to use whatever is at hand to defend yourself; this could include wooden chairs and glass bottles. We'll even get side-quests that can actually change depending on how you play the game.
And in the end, we just can't wait to learn more.
