Game News: First Look at Silent Hill: Downpour

ON

Konami today released the first screenshots from the survival horror game, Silent Hill: Downpour. Making its return to next generation consoles this fall, Silent Hill: Downpour will bring a completely original storyline, and all-new haunting soundtrack as players find themselves stranded in the foggy, malevolent world of Silent Hill.

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.

Screenshots show highly detailed environments of the new Silent Hill, where seedy pasts and uncertain futures unify to create to a terrifying present. Included within is a sneak preview of the town, as well as two all-new environments: The Diner and The Devil’s Pit.

The game music is composed by Daniel Licht, who also scores the music for the hit Showtime series, “Dexter”.

Silent Hill: Downpour is scheduled to be released in fall 2011 on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
