Konami announced during their E3 2010 press conference today that Silent Hill 8 (working title) will be creeping its way on to the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in 2011.
Player will once again be venturing to the titular horrorfest of town, only this time as an prison inmate on the run after his transport vehicle crashes, killing everyone but him in the process. From there, it will be a battle for survival in classic Silent Hill fashion: explore unnerving environments, encounter terrifying living nightmares, pee pants, repeat.
However, this time around players will be able to decide their path in the game depending on their play style. Try and kill every cursed being in your path, or flee to flee another day; it’s up to you. The game will also include various side quests that will play out differently depending on what play style you prefer.
There are still plenty of questions to be answered about the game, but for now, color me intrigued. I’m a sucker for creepy towns that go bump in the night.
