Konami has hits us up with first shots of the next iteration of its hugely popular horror series, Silent Hill: Downpour. We first reported on this latest installment a while back and now we have even more info for you.
Silent Hill: Downpour marks the series’ return to PS3 and Xbox 360, and 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. In the screenshots we see how much detail is going into the environments this time around and get a sneak peak of the town and two new areas: The Diner and The Devil’s Pit.
The soundtrack will be handled by acclaimed composer, Daniel Licht best known for his work on Showtime’s acclaimed serial killer drama, Dexter.
