Konami Announces Tentatively Titled Silent Hill 8

ON

New storyline, new characters

Konami Digital Entertainment unveiled Silent Hill 8 (working title), the eighth installment of the Silent Hill franchise.

Staying true to the franchise’s original roots, the game returns with another third person horror experience, and an all-new storyline. Players will once again find themselves face to face with their deepest sins and fears in the strange world of Silent Hill.

The survival horror experience begins after a prison transport vehicle careens off the road, leaving lone inmate Murphy Pendleton stranded in Silent Hill. Gamers will encounter mind-bending puzzles, as well as horrific creatures and other world terrors using everyday objects from wooden chairs to glass bottles to fend off their enemies. The natural response, fight or flight is left to the player as they unravel a dark, thought-provoking storyline which will appeal to fans of the early, classic Silent Hill series, as well as anyone who enjoys a deep, psychological horror experience.

In addition to the main storyline, players will also be presented with variable side quests along the way that can change depending on their play style, revealing unknown evils within the town.

Look for it on the XBox 360 and Playstation 3 next year.
