New Silent Hill Debut Video Arrives
When we heard a new Silent Hill might be in the works, we recalled all the thrills and chills we received from playing previous installments.
And now, if you didn't get a chance to go to E3, the debut trailer is available for you to peruse. It shows the main character, Murphy Pendleton, who is apparently a prisoner for some reason, escape thanks to a bus crash. He stumbles into the creepy town of Silent Hill and it isn't long before he probably wishes he was back on the bus... In this video, we see the first part of the adventure and towards the end, the atmosphere really starts to kick in.
In development at Vatra Games, a new studio, we're hoping for a smash debut from the new team. They say we can expect an "all-new storyline and unique evolutions in gameplay," which may or may not entice long-time fans of the franchise. Either way, Silent Hill has always been about the environment; the psychological edginess that accompanies every scape, bump, and thump. The darkness holds something sinister...you're just not sure what it is. Provided they keep this quality, we'll probably be plenty satisfied.
By the way "Silent Hill 8" is just the working title for now.
