Konami shared some Silent Hill announcements today as part of its Silent Hill Transmission presentation confirming many old rumors and putting others to bed as well.
The biggest news from the presentation is that Bloober Team, the developer behind The Medium and other horror games, is remaking Silent Hill 2. The game’s trailer showcased scenes from the iconic game with all-new visuals. The Silent Hill 2 remake is coming to PC via Steam and will be a PlayStation 5 exclusive for at least a year after launch.
Konami followed with Silent Hill Townfall, a new game from developer No Code, the makers of Observation and Stories Untold. The teaser shared for the game offered few game details, but the implication is that it will be slightly different for Silent Hill.
Christophe Gans, the director of the 2006 original Silent Hill movie, returns to make another Silent Hill movie titled Return to Silent Hill. Gans appeared during the presentation to talk about how the film will be an adaptation of Silent Hill 2. Filming and casting is still in the works, but Gans did have a handful of concept art to share.
Then Konami shared some of its planned new Silent Hill merchandise. High-end statues of characters like James Sunderland and Mario from Silent Hill 2 were shown, as well as a statue of the comical, non-canon dog ending of Silent Hill2, where James learns that everything that happens to him is controlled by a dog. A mastermind dog hug will also be available soon.
Silent Hill Ascension is yet another Silent Hill game with the tagline “Facing your trauma together.” The multiplayer game featured a number of development partners, including Dead by Daylight creators Behavior Interactive, as well as director JJ Abrams’ Bad Robot Games. Little was shown or shared about the gameplay, but it looks like it will be a story-driven multiplayer game.
Finally, the presentation ended with a pre-rendered trailer for a new, mainline Silent Hill game called Silent Hill f. The game’s trailer showed a young woman walking through a Japanese city dragging a pipe across the ground (like Pyramid Head) and eventually being consumed by flowers. It is not yet clear when the game will be released and what kind of game it will be.
