Silent Hill 8 becomes Silent Hill: Downpour
Konami has released the first shots of the next iteration of its hugely popular horror series, Silent Hill: Downpour. The asset issue marks the first confirmation of the new game’s suffix. Konami also announced that acclaimed composer, Daniel Licht (Dexter), is producing the game’s eerie soundtrack
Silent Hill: Downpour marks the series’ return to PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, and brings a completely original storyline which follows Murphy Pendleton, a convict stranded in the foggy, malevolent world of Silent Hill. Pendleton begins the game lost and alone in the woods on the outskirts of the fabled town, when his prison transport bus crashes…
What happens after this is up to the player, as Silent Hill: Downpour reveals a new, expansive environment that is similarly claustrophobic and where the player is never truly alone. The new assets demonstrate the highly detailed environments the game enjoys, a sneak preview of the town and two new areas: The Diner and The Devil’s Pit.
Silent Hill: Downpour is slated for a late 2011 release.
