Konami has released the first shots of the next iteration of its horror series, Silent Hill. Silent Hill: Downpour marks the first confirmation of the new game’s suffix, while acclaimed composer, Daniel Licht (of TV Series ‘Dexter’ fame), has been confirmed as producing the game’s eerie soundtrack.
The game is expected in Autumn 2011 (Northern Hemisphere) on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
The game brings a completely original storyline which follows Murphy Pendleton, a convict stranded in the foggy, malevolent world of Silent Hill. Pendleton begins the game lost and alone in the woods on the outskirts of the fabled town, when his prison transport bus crashes…
What happens after this is up to the player, as Silent Hill: Downpour reveals a new, expansive environment that is similarly claustrophobic and where the player is never truly alone. The new assets demonstrate the highly detailed environments the game enjoys, a sneak preview of the town and two new areas: The Diner and The Devil’s Pit.
