KONAMI, one of the world’s largest game publisher, and Bloober Team, have signed a strategic cooperation agreement. It will include jointly developing selected contents and exchanging know-how.
Oh shet it true yall. The rumors said their were going to be two silent hill games one by blooper the other by someone else.
One of them will be a walking simulator and the other will be a love story , don't think theres a 3rd option for silent hill.
and both of them will end up cancelled.
Oh God Blooper Team, especially after the Medium, does not inspire confidence at all
Hopefully they just got their bad game out of the way. Layers of fear were solid horror games and I feel they have the ability to make a solid horror game.
Surprised so many don't like it. I thought it was easily their best game, which is still a 7/10 admittedly. Every once and a while it scratched that uncanny PS2 era horror vibe and for that I quite enjoyed it. The thing with Blooper is they tell great stories and make great worlds, but their gameplay is lacking. It feels like a big team of art guys.
Well, Bloober gave us a poor man's Silent Hill, hopefully some other studio is making a new SH game.
It’s not the same as working on a Silent Hill though. They got the camera angles right, the other game could be first person.
Yes the Medium was mediocre at best. I actually fell asleep 😴 playing it. Was just a walking simulator
...The Mediocre? That's disheartening. When they first showed it last year, my first thought was that it looked great. An actually good horror title to fill a void that hasn't really been filled since PS2 (and p.T if you count that). Though I do think that "walking simulator" gets tossed around a bit much these days. People said the same of Hellblade (y'know, before Ninja Theory was acquired) and Death Stranding. It just seems to be the go-to phrase for slow-paced games now.
@DarXyde I agree, I dont think people know what "walking simulator" even came from anymore. I've had walking simulators that were a snoozefest (Example Everybody's Gone to Rapture). There was a period where walking simulators were releasing weekly because people figured out how easy it was to make.
Hope they don't make it with fixed camera angle that they experimented with The Medium. Save it for Medium II. I know many people will say its "authentic" to classic-SH experience but guys Kojima tried SHs with FP camera. Since its from Bloober, it'll be UE4/5 based. All we need is a simple over the shoulder third person psychological horror Silent Hill game.
If you notice most Blooper games are walking simulators without combat. My expectations is low for this game.
I don't think over the shoulder is a good idea for SH at all. Most of the games focus on melee combat, so fixed or first person views would work much better. OTS is good for more gunplay orientated games.
And what about some hack n slash action adventure games with OTS view?
Most of those are more a farther away third person cam. OTS is basically RE2 remake, which is an awkward angle for melee.
A Silent Hill game with OTS view can dynamically shift (zoom out) the camera when in combat, a la new God of War style.
Well that's underwhelming news, very mediocre studio. Hopefully the other project has more promise.
I wonder if Konami would ever give us real good news again one day.
So rumours of two silent hill games might be true. Not going to lie I don't have much hope for the Bloober team one.
Well… at least we know there will be a Silent Hill game now. Just don’t know how good it’ll be.
Ugh, I love the original stories bloober creates, let someone else make another silent hill…
Im just happy to hear that Konami may actually be utilizing some of their IP in the new gen. There is a lot of potential! I wasnt a huge fan of any Bloober Team games, but I would expect there would be a lot of pride in the team to do a classic series like Silent Hill some justice! And you never now, if some talented devs hear that a new Silent Hill is in the works, maybe they try and join the dev house making the game and the team gets that much better. The Medium wasnt a bad game by any means, Im sure these folks could make something good in the Silent Hill franchise. Hopefully this is just the start of them doing some strategic partnerships. Something id like to see is them linking up with a team like Platinum. Let those guys make a crazy, badass 3D Contra game or a new Zone of Enders. I could see Platinum creating some awesome stuff with Konami IP.
I think the other game is being made by Jp studio and i think it Tango Games the makers of Evil Within, who by the way have a history with Silent Hill. Going to be one of those contracts Phil Spencer talk about it being multiplatform.
This comment doesn't make sense. Why would Tango games be involved with Silent Hill🤔 there already working on Ghost wire Tokyo and probably Evil Within 3. Shinji Mikami doesn't have any history with Silent Hill.
You"re right he the maker of resident evil but what i said still stand the rumors said japanese studio and Tango games could be it.
Imagine cancelling Silent Hills and losing Kojima only to reboot this series again under another mediocre studio. I guess silent hill isn’t escaping mediocre hell anytime soon…
