If you’re like me, then you view the Silent Hill series as a massively underappreciated gem of fictional horror, on par with some of our greatest literary triumphs. If you’re not like me? Well, shame on you!
Konami recenetly released some details about Silent Hill 8 [which is a working title]. The game will once again take place in the town of Silent Hill, in the realm of darkness and sin. Murphy Pendleton, a convict, is stuck in the town after his prison transport veers off course, and crash lands him smack dab in the worst possible location. Horrors will abound, as Pendleton is faced with the embodiment of sin and horror itself.
“In honoring the rich history and strong following of Silent Hill, we’re working hard to build a next generation horror game that the fans truly deserve… This Silent Hill introduces an all-new storyline and unique evolutions in gameplay, building on innovations and successes from over a decade of true survival horror and terror.” said Hirano, Konami President.
The game is scheduled for a 2011 release on the Playstation 3 and Xbox360 consoles.
