The Silent Hill 2 remake is finally confirmed to be real, releasing as a console exclusive on PS5 and PC for at least 12 months. Besides the announcement trailer, Konami and Bloober Team have provided more details and screenshots in a PlayStation Blog post. Marvel at the new images below, and we'll reconvene for some juicy PS5-specific details.
We don't know when Bloober Team plans to release the Silent Hill 2 remake, but it will take full advantage of the features packed into the PS5 system. Running on Unreal Engine 5, 3D audio will allow players to pinpoint the exact direction of sound cues and enemies through the thick fog of Silent Hill. "The WWise sound engine creates a realistic and believable soundscape that helps players feel like they are truly inside the game."
The DualSense controller will also implement haptic feedback and adaptive trigger support, but while Bloober Team plans to get creative with its ideas, it isn't ready to say what they are just yet. Finally, the PS5's SSD means there won't be a single load screen in the game, allowing you to seamlessly explore the town.
"Armed with these technologies, we hope to make Silent Hill 2 an even more harrowing and unforgettable experience for fans old and new. We’re confident that we can do justice to this cult classic, and breathe a new life into its gameplay. The end result will be a Silent Hill game that looks and sounds better than anything that has come before it. While the development is not over yet, we already can’t wait for fans to experience it."
