At Konami's 2010 Electronic Entertainment Expo press briefing in June, the publisher premiered its latest Silent Hill game. At the time, it was given a working title of Silent Hill 8, but now Konami has gotten more specific.
According to the latest issue of GameStop-owned Game Informer magazine, Silent Hill 8 is now called Silent Hill: Downpour. The title--from Czech developer Vatra Games--is due out on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 sometime in 2011.
Narrative details surrounding the title remain scant, but the title's debut trailer (embedded below) reveals some new information. Gamers will play as ex-inmate Murphy Pendleton, a man who suffers from lucid visions when he sleeps.
Further, Downpour will remain a third-person horror game in which players will be tested by puzzles, creatures, and various otherworldly beings. Additionally, as its name suggests, Silent Hill: Downpour will heavily feature the element of water.
