After a teasing reveal in the latest issue of Game Informer, Konami is ready to officially announce Silent Hill: Downpour. Developed by Vatra Games, the game will be coming to the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 sometime this Fall.
Downpour will follow Murphy Pendleton’s adventures in Silent Hill after his prison transport bus crashes and strands the convict in the foggy hamlet. Pendleton begins the game lost and alone in the woods on the outskirts of the fabled town and it only goes downhill from there when he enters The Diner and The Devil’s Pit.
Vatra and Konami have revealed that they are attempting to create a game that is “claustrophobic” while also giving off the feeling that “the player is never truly alone.” To invoke this mood, Konami has enlisted composer Daniel Licht (“Dexter”) to create the soundtrack for Silent Hill: Downpour.
