Developer- and Publisher-specific Articles: Silent Hill
A new downloadable content pack has launched for Silent Hill: Book of Memories. The PS Vita exclusive’s first drop is a considerable one, with the $4.99 release including balance tweaks, 10 new playable characters, 50 new outfits, 15 new accessories, 14 new artifacts, 10 new weapons, 15 new story notes, two new enemies, and four new trophies.
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.”
Gamers wanting a touch of horror in their co-op action will be able to take a different kind of trip to Silent Hill today with the release of Silent Hill: Book of Memories for PS Vita. The action-RPG allows players to team up and explore different Otherworlds, solving puzzles, fighting enemies, and battling through Nightmares, as they alter their own past by editing the memories scrawled throughout the mysterious book.
PS Vita owners looking to take a trip to Silent Hill are getting their chance today with the launch of a new demo of the upcoming Silent Hill: Book of Memories. Available over PSN, the demo features the first two zones of the game and access to a handful of the weapons and power-ups, as well as a chance to experience some of the light role-playing elements. The full version will feature a new storyline and support for online multiplayer.
Silent Hill fans who picked up the HD Collection for the PS3 can now download a bug-fixing title update. The patch addresses problems with the frame rate, audio synching, and “other reported issues.” Xbox 360 gamers, however, are out of luck as there will be no forthcoming patch. According to Konami, the update will not be hitting Live because of “technical issues and resources.”
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.
