EpicDome: Breaking the Silence: Three Heroes Unite to Save Silent Hill

The Illusive Man says:"Gamescom provided one of the biggest pieces of gaming news to date: Metal Gear creator Hideo Kojima, nerdy filmmaker Guillermo del Toro, and Darryl Dixon himself, Norman Reedus, are collaborating on a new Silent Hill video game (tentatively?) entitled “Silent Hills”. STOP-THE-PRESSES! One of my favorite video game franchises is being resurrected by two fanatical creative minds, and the most popular actor on TV’s most popular show? Is this available for preorder yet? If so, please post the link in the comments, ‘kay thanks. As strange as this sounds, it’s 100% true, but what’s really weird is that those three talents together just happen to be one team that can rescue Silent Hill from the foggy depths survival horror obscurity. You can refer to them as the new “Team Silent”. (Culture, Dev, gamescom, Guillermo del Toro, Hideo Kojima, Industry, Silent Hill)

Will Silent Hill be a PS4 Exclusive?
NaughtyDogs  +   282d ago
I think just that P.T aka Playable Teaser is exclusive, but the actual Silent hill game is multi. I hope not though and I wish its for both PS4 and Xbox One

How can it be played on Xbone? its published by Sony.
HanzoHattori  +   281d ago
If it isn't an exclusive then why isn't this demo/reveal available on Xbox One? It doesn't make any sense to assume that it's a multi-platform game. I say just wait for more information. It's the best way to avoid being disappointed.

After MS securing Tomb Raider as a timed exclusive I think its only fair for Sony to secure Silent Hills as one as well.

Look the way I see it nobody seems to care about OTHER fans so why start now?

At above, the demo uses Dualshock 4 features like flashlight and speaker and micro for the maximum scare, so it must be exclusive to PS4 (MGS5 was announced to be multiplatform from the start and was show in each console maker conference each time unlike Siletn Hills which was announced in Sony's conference only and henc the demo only on PS4).

OT:The 3 babies giggles go beyond the 4th wall and are an allusion to the new comers in Silent Hill aka Hideo Kojima, Guillermo Del Torro and Norman Reedus hence the babies(new commers) sounds a and 3 times) ( special sounds in numbered times especially 3 in religious and folkloric stories always have a meaning and are a remoitions of things to happen). The number 3 is recurrent in this demo, using R3 all the time (displayed by using chalk on the ground inside a frame) three lights: green, red, blue. The number three has to have many meanings

This was stroke of genius on Konami's part. Silent Hill was pretty much a dying franchise and they literally had only PES and metal gear to depend on, so what do they do? Get one of the most prolific directors/writers in the movie industry who has been wanting to make a video game for years, give Hideo Kojima (the gaming god) a break from metal gear which he's been wanting to do for years and get Norman Reedus who is one of the most recognizable actors in TV today to play the main character. Needless to say this is what both Konami & Silent Hill needed.

This is what we all needed; a fresh and quality reboot of this excellent franchise.

I heard Konami wanted Kojima to make a Silent Hill game for awhile. Well it seems they made the right call because this is the most excited I've been for SE in years. Can't wait to see all the weirdness and twists Kojima brings.

If they make it open world like phantom pain ,,,, i will explode of happiness , i always wanted silent hill to be open .
Silent Hill Downpour was open world and it wasn't as bad as people say but it definitely wasn't even close to being as good as the original 3 games. I would love for Kojima to make this open like The Phantom Pain. The Fox Engine would make the greatest town of Silent Hill we have ever seen. So excited for this.

I'm incredibly excited and anxious for this game and the talent on it is massive, but I feel calling them "heroes" is a bit of a stretch...

PT is actually terrifying, played in the right enviroment.
If they keep that standard through the entire game I'll be very impressed.
Aleithian  +   281d ago
If they keep that standard through the entire game I'll have to be locked in a mental asylum. I'll admit it, I had to close my eyes at a few parts and had to give my wife the controller...
Clown_Syndr0me  +   281d ago
I played alone in the pitch black while everyone was asleep inches from the Tele, the tension was too much and when something actually happened I called it a night straight away lol!
Ill give it another go later, a bit earlier this time...and with company!

Just realizing that Sony's publishing this.


It HAS to be exclusive, then!
CernaML  +   281d ago
It also states that the developer is 7780s studio which doesnt exist.
HeWhoWalks  +   281d ago
Yet, it states that Konami is co-publishing (true). It also has the name of the game now, too (wasn't there before).

For everything that doesn't make sense, something does.
sinspirit  +   280d ago
It doesn't exist? Yet it was just established as a studio? Ever think it might just be a new studio, which is obvious? Clearly, nothing was known about them prior to recent announcements because they were keeping things secret for this title.
CernaML  +   278d ago
^Just like how Moby Dick Studios was a newly established studio right?

Are you even keeping up with what all of this is about? A new Silent Hill game developed by Kojioma productions?
CernaML  +   281d ago
How is it true when it hasnt even been confirmed? Obviously Konami will be the publisher since they own the IP but nothing has been said about Sony publishing it as well.

All the last silent hill released went by without pain or glory, well, mostly pain, but the fact they made me excited about a Silent Hill again is an achievement in itself.

This is one of those cases where the teaser impressed me so much that, regardless if it was a Silent Hill game or no, I was going to buy it.

I liked the teaser without even knowing Kojima, Del Toro, Reedus or Silent Hill were going to be mentioned. The credits were just the icing on the cake.

Lookes like the Silent hill series is getting back on track hopefully capcom can get Resident evil back on track also
We need to make this a foursome instead because we need Akira Yamaoka to join in the developement.
