P.T. Game Revealed on PS4 Is Actually Next Silent Hill from Kojima and Guillermo del Toro

That playable P.T. demo revealed during the Gamescom PS4 conference is actually a teaser for a new Silent Hill.

Among the games announced during Sony's Gamescom press conference today was P.T., a new horror game for PlayStation 4 from 7780s Studio. Alongside the reveal of the game, Sony announced a demo of sorts would be released today. It's out now on the PSN store, and it comes with a curious warning: "Avoid playing if you have a heart condition."

But the real hook, as discovered by Twitch streamer SoapyWarPig (via NeoGAF), is that it's actually a trailer for the next Silent Hill game. And while it doesn't list specific roles, it has some real surprises in its credits: Hideo Kojima, who trolled everyone right before the presentation with gameplay of Metal Gear Solid V's Big Boss in a box, and Guillermo del Toro are both involved with development.

After the two names are shown, a character played by Walking Dead actor Norman Reedus walks on-screen before the Silent Hill name appears. That, in turn, becomes the apparent name of the project: Silent Hills.

P.T. stands for "playable teaser." Kojima did say he wanted to work on a Silent Hill game earlier this year. You can watch the full game playthrough and ending (which starts at 1:16:49) below.

I finally got to the end, I had to look up locations for the last couple of picture puzzles pieces although I don't know if you need to solve that to get the video trailer. I got stuck in that red warp endless hallway maze too, so I had to get a clue to look through that peephole in the wall. Then I got stuck getting the three baby laugh/giggles... once you go through the loop door, just stand there... then wait for the haunting clock chime, let it finish then walk the ten steps to get the first giggle, then walk to the radio read the hell message, wait for another haunting to almost finish... then if you have the camera or microphone on just blurt out some gibberish, yell whatever... then you get the second giggle, then don't move and let the controller vibrate... soon followed by the third giggle, after that the phone rings so quickly go to the phone and press R3 to get the "you have been chosen" or whatever it says then the door unlocks sound happens then go through the loop door to get the video trailer.

I really hope this game stays as first person view, because changing it into third person view would ruin all the fun, I know silent hill has been always a third person horror game but, with such game and such graphics like these, keeping it as a first person would be amazing and it would be a hell of a fun game...

All you're doing is walking through a bunch of corridors with scary sound effects that gets old fast.  The Evil Within now that's going to be a scary game.

This article is confusing and poorly Written: 7780 Studios does not exist, it was made up by Hideo to Hide the fact that it is a SH game. On another note, the origional Team Silent seems to be missing From The list of names in the trailer. I hope at least that they bring Akira and Iso (composer and monster designer, respectively, on the original games) into the fold. If this game Turn out good, it would be a reason for me pt buy a PS4.

I gave up after about 15 minutes.


But that's because I'm a wuss and couldn't face it on my own.

I'm going to have another crack at midday tomorrow with the curtains wide open, my dogs next to me for moral support and fluffy Teddy's and pretty flowers around the TV.

Will the game be like this throughout. ? When it hits retail.  Or will it be like the standard Silent Hills.  Hope you know what I mean.  Thank you.

but what, does that mean del Toro is making indie games?, since you know, everyone keeps saying the PS4 is only for indie games.

I think only thing exclusive on PS4 about this games is it's playable trailer. There's no statement that it will be PS4 exclusive or even timed exclusive

I hope it comes to PC. This and bloodbourne were the only game that interested me.

@MiltaJay this is just a interactive trailer, the game will be amazing with Kojima involved. The Evil Within is looking like a Siren game, very scary but totally limited to sequential actions, even more than this demo.

@strrckshn i don't think i would like a bunch of teddy's looking at me while i play silent hill. one of them might move and ill end up with a turtle head. that wouldn't be good at all.

@Xmus942 bloodborne wont come to PC dude. It seems that "silent hills" is also a full exclusive, unlike what m$ did with Tomb raider, and claimed it was an exclusive, but forgot to mention to say it was a "timed exclusive". cheap way to get extra sales

@Maverick6585 Silent Hill won't be an exclusive.  Otherwise Sony would've only been too happy to announce it as such

@robbiejones @Xmus942 Or Sony could be doing the same exact crap that microsoft did, in which case silent hills will come to both consoles.... they already did it during E3 this year

@psin4mant @robbiejones @Xmus942 Silent Hill started of been a PS exclusive. Only makes sense to bring the game back to what made it great, and by keeping it at the best console to do so.

@keithlemon @robbiejones @psin4mant @Xmus942 says "ps4 exclusive" and by how the internet is taking it, the developer would of publicly stated that it is "timed exclusive" by now. Also xbox didn't get a demo. I know it sucks but it's how it is

@robbiejones The Division had a closed preview and demo only on the X1 at Gamescom, it must be an Xbox One exclusive huh? I agree with the others, if this was an exclusive it would have already mentioned it as such.
