Developer- and Publisher-specific Articles: Silent Hill
Hot on the heels of Silent Hill Downpour, Konami has released Silent Hill HD Collection for the PS3. The set includes re-mastered versions of Silent Hill 2 and Silent Hill 3. Both titles feature “true high-definition graphics,” widescreen support, and touched-up audio.
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.
Silent Hill fans have a lot to look forward to after Konami’s E3 press conference. In addition to the next release in the series, the 3D-supported Downpour, for the 360 and PS3, there is also a planned compilation pack and Vita release. Silent Hill Collections will be released on the PS3 this fall and include Silent Hill 2 and 3—no original?—complete with revamped HD graphics, trophy support, and new voice acting. Silent Hill: Book of Memories is a new release for Sony’s upcoming handheld, and will include a new soundtrack from series composer Daniel Licht and a co-op multiplayer mode.
