Developer- and Publisher-specific Articles: Silent Hill Downpour
The patch for Silent Hill: Downpour that launched last month for 360 is now live for PS3. The update, available through PSN, is said to improve the frame rate, fix the save system, fix bugs in the Homeless side quest, and include other “performance enhancements/bug fixes.”
The patch for Silent Hill: Downpour announced last April is now available on Live for 360. Improvements include an increased frame rate, fixed save system, fixed bugs in the Homeless mission, and other “performance enhancements/bug fixes.” It was also noted that a patch for the PlayStation 3 version is still in the works and set to launch “in the coming weeks.”
Silent Hill fans who have been experiencing some problems with the recently released Downpour and HD Collection will soon be experiencing a smoother slice of hell. Konami has announced that patches are in the works for both titles, with the Downpour patch addressing an autosave glitch and the HD Collection’s on stabilizing the frame rate and correcting the audio-synching problems. Both patches will be available “in the coming weeks” on Live and PSN.
It’s time to return to Silent Hill today with the release of Silent Hill: Downpour for the 360 and PS3. (Cue scratchy music and a crazy mutant that’s a reflection of your inner guilt.) The latest release has players taking on the role of convicted felon Murphy Pendleton, a man who awakens after a vehicle crash to find himself near the town of Silent Hill, “where mysterious locals welcome him into a slowly developing personal hell.”
Silent Hill fans will want to take note as some release dates have shifted for a number of upcoming titles. The bad news is that you’ll have to wait a bit longer to dive back into the universe, but the good news is that March will be dominated by Silent Hill. Starting March 13, Silent Hill Downpour will launch for the 360 and PS3. Following a week later is Silent Hill HD Collection, the 720p-ized re-releases of Silent Hill 2 and 3, for the 360 and PS3. Finally, the next week will see the release of Silent Hill Book of Memories for the PS Vita.
