Hell has finally frozen over, and Konami has announced new Silent Hill titles. This includes the heavily-rumored Silent Hill 2 remake from Bloober Team of The Medium and Layers of Fear fame. Developed on Unreal Engine 5 with series composer Akira Yamaoka and creature designer Masahiro Ito involved, it’s coming to PS5 and PC, remaining a PlayStation console exclusive for 12 months.
In the meantime, screenshots for the PC version have been released on Steam, offering a better look at protagonist James Sunderland. The footage is in-engine but looks good. Though a release date wasn’t announced, system requirements are available.
To achieve 1080p/30 FPS at Low/Medium quality, players will need an Intel Core i5-8400 or AMD Ryzen 3 3300X,12 GB RAM, and an AMD Radeon RX 5700 or Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080. The recommended requirements are more interesting. You’ll need a Core i7-8700K or Ryzen 5 3600X, 16 GB RAM, and a GeForce RTX 2080 or Radeon 6800XT. This will enable playing at Medium settings in 60 FPS or High settings in 30 FPS in 1080p (or in 4K using DLSS or “similar technology”).
In both cases, 50 GB of installation space is required. These may not be the final requirements, so stay tuned for more details in the coming months. In the meantime, check out the next mainline title Silent Hill f here.
