So, this is nuts.
A trailer was posted on the official PlayStation YouTube channel yesterday advertising a demo of a new game called P.T. that was supposedly terrifying. As soon as the video went up, players flocked to the PlayStation store to download the demo, and the reward for finishing it was, well...a lot more impressive than the demo itself:
The new Silent Hill game, called Silent Hills - a very simple yet intriguing title - is being developed by horror legend Guillermo del Toro, The Walking Dead star Norman Reedus, and famous game designer Hideo Kojima. I was a little confused seeing Kojima's name at first. He's been an integral part of the Metal Gear series for a long time, but that game is in a completely different genre. After reading an interview with him though, and it started to make sense.
The Silent Hill series has faltered over the last few games, in my opinion. I don't think the way to fix it is by hiring a bunch of famous people, but given the backgrounds of these three, it actually seems like it might just work. I mean, I never thought I'd be excited for Silent Hill ever again. The fact that I am is probably more shocking than anything I'll see in this upcoming game.
