According to a recently leaked best buy listing for the upcoming survival horror remake, Silent Hill 2, which has since been taken down, the upcoming game will give more focus on the Silent Hill 2 fan favorite antagonist, Pyramid Head. As spotted by a ResetEra user, the Best Buy listing states that the upcoming game will feature the character making a return and will have “a special origin story for fans to play through.” It’s worth noting that while this is a remake, the origin story, if true, may be completely original content unique to the upcoming game. However, it’s also worth noting that developer Blooper Team has stated that it doesn’t intend to change “established narrative core”. The Silent Hill 2 remake will launch for PlayStation 5 and PC via Steam. A release date has yet to be announced.
The game’s details via Steam:
Having received a letter from his deceased wife, James heads to where they shared so many memories, in the hope of seeing her one more time: Silent Hill. There, by the lake, he finds a woman eerily similar to her…
“My name…is Maria,” the woman smiles. Her face, her voice… She’s just like her.
Experience a master-class in psychological survival horror—lauded as the best in the series—on the latest hardware with chilling visuals and visceral sounds.
Producer Motoi Okamoto’s comments on the upcoming game:
“Silent Hill returns as a high-end game. We are proud to announce the release of Silent Hill 2 for PlayStation and Steam, the best of the Silent Hill series. Look forward to this high-quality remake brought back to life by a group of horror game experts.”
Composer Akira Yamaoka:
“Silent Hill is an inspiration to me. I am deeply grateful to be involved in a work that has been loved for such a long time. A new history is about to unfold again. Please look forward to the time when you can immerse yourself in that world again.”
Bloober Team CEO Piotr Babieno:
“Silent Hill 2 was the game that shaped our collective vision at Bloober Team. It’s the game that started us on our adventure in game development. Now, we face an ultimate challenge. A challenge to translate our youthful memories of the ultimate game into a language that modern players can engage with, whilst at the same time crafting an experience true to the original. More than 20 years ago, a team of brilliant minds at Konami developed one of the most remarkable games in the history of electronic entertainment. In partnering together, Konami and Bloober Team will ensure that Silent Hill 2 shines once again to set new standards for the genre and deliver an unforgettable experience for the next generation of fans. With our work, we are determined to showcase that Bloober Team is climbing the heights of what’s possible and aiming for the peak in game development. We can’t wait for the moment when Players will be able to see our work.”
