It was also announced that a Silent Hill movie is in the making, clearly showing that the needs of the fans have been heard.
Besides the announcement, Konami also released a trailer and a blog post to let players know about the progress of Silent Hill 2. Hence, here is everything you need to know.
Silent Hill 2 Remake Release Date
There is no release date for the Silent Hill 2 remake, even though the announcement for the game has been made. The game’s reveal was spectacular and yet, completely devoid of any clue regarding its release as Konami didn’t provide any time frame for the release. This probably means that the game is still under development and will need a year or even more time to wrap up production and become available to the masses.
Silent Hill 2 Remake Trailer
While the length of the announcement video can make you think that a trailer for Silent Hill 2 remake has been revealed, it’s merely a teaser video. This is because no gameplay or in-game footage has been shown in it.
The teaser begins by taking all players back to the creepy little town of Silent Hill. The character models seem more realistic now, and the cinematic and graphics also appear to be updated.
It shows James in the bathroom again, thinking of Mary, who passed away three years back. It shows him passing through the streets of the town, crossing familiar places, just when Mary’s voice echoes in the background, saying, “In my restless dreams, I see that town. Silent Hill.”
The scenes instantly change to James seeing the Pyramid Head for the first time in the apartments. Then, the teaser shifts to Laura outside of the hospital.
Players also get a confirmation via the teaser trailer that everything will not be the same in the Silent Hill 2 remake, and new scenes will be added as they can witness James attacking a nurse for a split second.
And just before the teaser trailer ends, players see James and Maria and Pyramid together.
Silent Hill 2 Remake Platforms- Where can I play it?
The game will initially launch only for PlayStation 5 and PC and no other platforms. It will release for Xbox as well but not immediately. Xbox players can expect to wait a year to play the game as the developers will probably take this long to make it available for their platform.
Moreover, Silent Hill 2 remake is currently unavailable for pre-order. But as soon as it becomes available, we will let you know. Until then, stay tuned for more updates!
