Three Times The Scares As Silent Hill Goes 3D
Silent Hill: Downpour was playable for the first time at E3 on both PlayStation 3 and Xbox360, and KONAMI showcased the game’s newly-announced 3D functionality. This marks the series’ first foray into 3D and will also allow the players to become truly immersed in the game’s familiar mist-shrouded streets. KONAMI has also confirmed that platinum-selling rock band KORN have created a track especially for the game’s soundtrack, which is perfectly coupled with Dan Licht’s eerie score.
KONAMI is also celebrating the previous Silent Hill range, with the release of The Silent Hill HD Collection for PlayStation 3, which brings the acclaimed Silent Hill 2 and Silent Hill 3 bang up to date, with all new enhancements and high-definition graphics. The games have been completely reworked, with all-new voice talent, and the addition of PlayStation Network Trophies. The Silent Hill HD Collection will be released in Q4.
Silent Hill: Book of Memories is the first KONAMI title to be confirmed for the forthcoming PlayStation Vita portable device, and is also the first ever multi-player Silent Hill title. The game will feature an all-new scenario and soundtrack, and links past and present events in the series in one game. Working with a friend, players are left stranded in Silent Hill, where they must work together in order to escape the town and its inhuman denizens.
Silent Hil: Downpour will be released for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, Silent Hill HD Collection for PlayStation both will release late 2011. No release date has been set for Silent Hill: Book of Memories at this point.
