Silent Hill 8 Officially Named Silent Hill: Downpour to be Released Fall 2011



Konami officially released information on the next Silent Hill, stating that it was to be called Silent Hill: Downpour and that it would be released in the fall of 2011. It is also a completely original story. From the screenshots, this is looking to have great potential.

Silent Hill: Downpour starts as Murphy Pendleton, the game’s main character, finds himself lost and alone in the woods after his prison transport bus crashes near the town of Silent Hill. What happens after is up to the player as they traverse an all new Silent Hill environment that is expansive, yet claustrophobic. And though this sleepy town may feel desolate, the player is never truly alone.

The E3 trailer, and more pictures can be seen after the jump.

    Not a fan of the franchise to be honest, but have to admit it looks pretty freaky, might even be pretty good.

    The game informer spread gives me high hopes for this. None in the series spooked me more then the 1st one. They need to up the scare factor for me to fork out $65

    Silent Hill 8??? shouldn’t be 6???

    Anyways after the big disappointment that was Silent Hill V, I think I’ll rent this one. It is developed by the same team?
