Silent Hill Downpour announced, detailed in new GI

Posted By | On 08th, Jan. 2011

Game Informer’s latest issues is carrying a proper reveal for upcoming Silent Hill game.

Titled, Silent Hill: Downpour, the game seems to be pretty interesting and does away from the traditional Silent Hill formula.

We have rounded up the info that the feature has about Konami’s latest below:

  • Demo takes place in the outskirts of SH
  • The town is so large that you can use a subway system to travel between focal points
  • sidequests
  • Avoid fights when possible, better to deliver incapacitating blows and run away (so good!)
  • Boss fights with quicktime events (not so good)
  • Water plays a huge part in the game, bizarre water effects like what looks like an upside down river flowing across a ceiling is described
  • Prominent locations in the older installments like schools and hospitals will not return
  • The southeastern part of Silent Hill that you see on the maps in the older games but never go to is the area that will be explored in DownpourN
  • No weapon inventory, weapons weaken and break
  • There will be puzzle difficulty options

The game’s releasing this year for PS3, Xbox 360 and PC. No dates yet.

Thanks, Neogaf.
