Silent Hill 8 Officially Named Silent Hill: Downpour

KONAMI, today released the first screenshots and music from the highly anticipated survival horror game, Silent Hill: Downpour. More details, with screenshots, after the jump.

Making its return to “next generation” consoles this fall, Silent Hill: Downpour will bring a completely original storyline, and all-new haunting soundtrack as players find themselves stranded in the foggy, malevolent world of Silent Hill.

Silent Hill: Downpour starts as Murphy Pendleton, the game’s main character, finds himself lost and alone in the woods after his prison transport bus crashes near the town of Silent Hill. What happens after is up to the player as they traverse an all-new Silent Hill environment that is expansive, yet claustrophobic. And though this sleepy town may feel desolate, the player is never truly alone.

Screenshots show highly detailed environments of the new Silent Hill, where seedy pasts and uncertain futures unify to create to a terrifying present. Included within is a sneak preview of the town, as well as two all-new environments: The Diner and The Devil’s Pit.

Also released today is a ninety second sample of in-game music that is composed by Daniel Licht — Silent Hill: Downpour‘s Music Composer — who also scores the music for the hit Showtime series, “Dexter”.

Silent Hill: Downpour is scheduled to be released in fall 2011 on Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system.
