Konami’s just revealed Silent Hill 8 (working title), and it’s slated for release on PS3 and 360 from developer Vatra.

The firm also confirmed it will be coming next year. And the guy who does the soundtrack to Dexter is on board. Smashing.


The survival horror experience begins after a prison transport vehicle careens off the road, leaving lone inmate Murphy Pendleton stranded in Silent Hill.

Gamers will encounter mind-bending puzzles, as well as horrific creatures and other world terrors using everyday objects from wooden chairs to glass bottles to fend off their enemies.

The natural response, fight or flight is left to the player as they unravel a dark, thought-provoking storyline which will appeal to fans of the early, classic Silent Hill series, as well as anyone who enjoys a deep, psychological horror experience.

In addition to the main storyline, players will also delve into side quests that can change depending on the play style, and will also reveal “unknown” evils within the town.

That it’s. No more info than that. Not even a subtitle. But it looks creepy enough.

There’s the video from the Komani conference below from YouTube.
