Director Guillermo Del Toro and Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima are teaming up to make a new Silent Hill video game.
The tenth game in the long-running horror franchise, apparently named Silent Hills, will also feature The Walking Dead and The Boondock Saints star Norman Reedus in the main role.
Silent Hills was announced by way of a PlayStation 4 interactive teaser demo called P.T.that hit the PlayStation Store earlier today. The short teaser asks players to navigate a darkened building while it bombards them with oddities, including weird radio transmissions and a small creature that looks like a sentient kidney taking shallow breaths in a bloodstained sink. The demo closes with the player seemingly escaping the building, whereupon the camera pans up to show an abandoned city, the names of its co-creators, and the virtual likeness of actor Norman Reedus.
The reveal seems to suggest, as with the first games in the series, that Silent Hills will take place in an empty and decaying city. The P.T. teaser is short, restrictive, and cryptic enough that it doesn’t offer more details easily, but the game’s environments look impressively grim and grimy. Silent Hills is being developed by Kojima’s own development studio, Kojima Productions, and will be built with Fox Engine.
