Silent Hill: Downpour Set For Fall, New Screens Emerge

Silent Hill: Downpour has been confirmed by the recent issue of Game Informer, and a few more details - along with new screenshots - have arrived.

You can find the new pics over at VG247; they show off a certain darkness and grittiness customarily associated with this freaky franchise. The better news is that the game should be ready to go for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 this fall and thus far, Vatra's effort is looking solid. As for whether or not it'll be a direct sequel, Konami has said Downpour will feature a "completely original storyline," which puts a new protagonist, Murphy Pendelton, in the limelight. He's actually a convict who escapes and finds himself trapped in Silent Hill and you can see parts of the town in those screenshots; two new areas, The Diner and The Devil's Pit, are shown. The plot and atmosphere have always been two of Silent Hill's most crucial elements, and it seems the new designer understands that. As for an official release date, we'll just have to wait a bit longer.

Now, all that's left is for Capcom to announce the new Resident Evil. That has to be soon, wouldn't you think?

If a new Resident Evil is released, I hope it has better Playstation Move support that Re5 Gold Edition. It felt kinda clunky.

Off topic, but do you think you'll update the mobile site so I can comment from my iPhone? I do most of my browsing of this site on it and I hardly use my computer /:

I was hoping this would be released sooner, all the good games this year seem to be out in teh final quater. Leaving the rest of teh year very dry.

As for teh game itself, i hope they've learnt a lesson from Homecoming and make a game worthy of this gen and not a title which should have been released on the PS2.

Homecoming was made by a dev named "The Collective." So I'm guessing this is a new team.

The game looks way better than Homecoming and it looks like it's bringing back a more solitary feel than Homecoming. Homecoming felt too amateurish and there were too many monsters everywhere. Basically it was kinda like a Hollywood movie.

Oh right i thought it was the same team as Homecoming, which was just a shodey production, Graphics engine similar to a ps2 game, sound cut outs before loading. And the gaemplay was just awful, it may have been more in depth than previous games, but it certainly was not as fun.

The game looks really good, these screenshots put the last SH to shame, Homecoming was it?

These new devs really understand the look of SH. The Homecoming devs on the other hand looked like they tried to make a Hollywood movie.

I have hope that Vatra will get it right. Some will never accept a SH that isn't made by the original SH team. But since that team parted ways we can only hope that one of these new devs Konami has hired will get it right.

Love the woods/outback screenshots, there's so much that can happen in wild places like those.

This game gives off a strong SH1 feel which is great, it's my favorite of them all.

I was just about to say the exact same thing. This game does look extremely close to Alan Wake in most of those shots.

Nothing wrong with that when you take into account that Alan Wake might have been inspired/influenced by Silent Hill in the first place.

Hmmm well i would no say SH so much really, sure it has fog, but the forrest setting is nothing like SH. It's obviously tooken influence from David Lynch's 'Twin Peaks'.

Looking good Konami. I remain interested.

But I can do without a new RE. RE5 left a bad taste in my mouth, what with it not being at all scary, or shocking. I know that it wasn't meant to be, but the implications are there with the RE title. Maybe the next Siren from Sony Japan, or perhaps Sega can announce that theirs is going multiplatform.
Peace.

Definitely Siren, very very underrated.
Perhaps one of the most underrated of this generation.

I agree with Snake, that game deserved more love.
I guess it was because it came out in PSN's early days...

I didn't want to download that one. I don't remember the exact size, but I recall all 12 episodes being a pretty big download. If you are in the US, as I am, you can get the UK version on blu-ray and it works just fine. I got mine off of ebay for about $40.

Wonder how will this play like?
A TPS or TPS with tank control?

After looking at the images, including the one with him pointing a gun, it seems like they still don't understand what made the original Silent Hills scary. I know Alan Wake was a good game, but it was a completely different game to the Silent Hill series, and it wasn't trying to be.

This might end up being a good game, but I'll be very surprised if it turns out to be a good Silent Hill. Like the Final Fantasy series, I guess we can expect to see some dumbed down westernised versions of this franchise too.

Finally got around to completing Silent Hill: Homecoming a few weeks ago, and the ending was the most sh*tasticly cliched thing I've ever witnessed. I'm not even exaggerating. I've witnessed M. Night Shyamalan plot twists that were better than this crap. And I'm talking about his recent movies.

That bad huh, AntDC? Well, I'm a huge fan of the old Silent hill's and I just couldnt bring myself to complete Homecoming... And I tried like 3 times, over the past 2 years. Thanks for the headsup. sh*tasticly... lol.

Honestly, be thankful you haven't completed it, because the ending makes everything you did previously redundant. Its ending is the equivalent to the old "It was a dream all along?!". No worries, it was almost starting to grow on me until the ending too :)

I'm looking forward to this one also. So many games in 2011! O_o The older Silent Hill games are still my favorite games of all time. I'm hoping this one gets the franchise back on track.
