Silent Hill Downpour (PS3 / PlayStation 3)

Game Profile

Murphy Pendleton has been incarcerated for several years, having had his sentence extended once already.

Due to his history at Ryall State Prison, he is being transferred to nearby Wayside Maximum Security Penitentiary-but a freak accident cuts the journey short. Waking up in a forest next to the wrecked bus, Murphy has a clear shot at freedom. He makes his way into the sleepy town of Silent Hill where mysterious locals welcome him into a slowly developing personal hell.

Silent Hill Downpour is the latest Silent Hill game offering the familiar Survival Horror gameplay delivered in the most defined visual quality to date. The game also expands on the exploration theme of the franchise both design-wise and through psychological torture, ambient story, horrific enemies and self-evaluative questions of despair.

  • All new and updated Silent Hill experience that visually stands on its own with the current competition. Utilizing Unreal 3 technology, the game brings the town of Silent Hill, its characters, the creatures and the alternate hell world into vivid and spectacular display.
  • Free-roaming and deep exploration that will take players into all-new 'Side Quests' unlocking areas within the game, special items and bonus content.
  • An ever-changing game world including day and night 'Normal' world and 'Otherworld' world, all manifested and sourced from character actions throughout the game.
  • First-time ever 3D technology will bring Silent Hill a step closer to the player with three-dimensional immersion.
  • Renowned story and music talent attached to the game including Silent Hill comic writer, Tom Waltz; original music directed and composed by renowned composer, Dan Licht, of the Showtime series Dexter; theme song performed by hard-rock multiplatinum group, Korn.
