Publisher Konami as part of the State of Play broadcast, which took place on the night of February 1st demonstrated a new trailer for the remake of the cult horror Silent Hill 2 by Bloober Team and the mysterious Silent Hill: The Short Message.
The combat trailer for the reimagining of Silent Hill 2, which debuted at State of Play, is the first official demonstration of the game since it was first announced back in fall 2022.
The one-and-a-half minute video featured location exploration, puzzle solving, and a redesigned combat system. According to viewers, the shoulder camera, QTEs and gun dominance are similar to the Resident Evil 2 remake.
The updated Silent Hill 2 has not been given a release date in the State of Play – it is expected to be released in 2024 on PC (Steam) and PS5. They promise graphics on Unreal Engine 5, scary sound and no loading screens.
As for Silent Hill: The Short Message, it represented a free-to-play first-person psychological horror game that debuted shortly after the show on PS5 (unconfirmed release on other platforms).
As the regulators “predicted” according to the plot of The Short Message, 17-year-old Anita must find her friend Maya in the run-down apartment building where she lives “ugly monster”.
Silent Hill: The Short Message is positioned as an experimental game, which is why they decided to release it for free. The Japanese HexaDrive, known for The 3rd Birthday and numerous ports of projects from other studios, is responsible for the development.
