Silent Hill fans, hold on tight. Konami today released a ton of news about the future of its iconic horror franchise, and apart from confirming a long-rumored remake of Silent Hill 2the studio unveiled three new games set in the same universe: Silent Hill city case, rise and f. They all sound like incredibly different experiences.
city case comes from Annapurna Interactive and No Code, a Glasgow studio known for its strong narrative skills and horror world building in titles like monitoring and Untold Stories. The short teaser for city case features an old-school pocket TV that cuts through tense conversations and disturbing scenes, and it seems to be the trio’s most traditional Silent Hill game.
rise is the least game-playing episode here, but it comes with a big name: JJ Abrams. It’s an interactive streaming series where “the whole community shapes the canon of Silent Hill” and the slogan is “Face Your Trauma Together”. rise comes from the studio of Abrams, Bad Robot, and Genvid, a company that produces interactive live shows. It is described as “a new form of entertainment that combines community, live storytelling and interactivity”. rise should appear in 2023.
And then there is Silent Hill f, a game that sounds like an exciting departure for the series. It comes from Ryūkishi07, a creator known for writing acclaimed visual novels with psychological horror and supernatural mysteries at their core. The teaser for f is beautiful and gruesome and features a young woman being consumed inside out by the tentacles of a carnivorous plant. A YouTube description for the teaser states that the game is “set in 1960s Japan and features a beautiful but terrifying world.” The video only gets bloodier as time goes on, so dive early if it’s making you squirm – or lean in and take a good look, you pretty freak. There’s no word yet on a release date or platforms for f.
And that’s not all, where Konami’s renewed interest in Silent Hill ends – alongside the remake of Bloober Team Silent Hill 2a new movie called Return to Silent Hill is in the works of Christophe Gans, the director of the 2006 film adaptation.
