Guillermo Del Toro and 'Metallic Gear' creator be a part of forces for subsequent 'Silent Hill' recreation
With the unhappy state that the Resident Evil and Lifeless Area franchises are in, phrase of a brand new excessive-profile horror recreation is extremely tantalizing. Downright thrilling, even. Earlier at the moment at Sony’s Gamescom media briefing, the subsequent Silent Hill was teased in a moderately convoluted method on stage — in fact, when Hideo Kojima is concerned, convolution is to be anticipated. A title referred to as P.T. was was briefly proven after a video for Metallic Gear Strong V: The Phantom Ache‘s in-recreation field (critically), and the viewers was advised that an interactive trailer for the previous can be obtainable on the PlayStation Retailer comparatively quickly. NeoGAF noticed that a gamer on Twitch began broadcasting her gameplay after downloading, and that is when one thing peculiar occurred. Towards the top of her terrifying stream, she unlocked a cutscene with a mysterious city and title playing cards bearing the names of the Metallic Gear head honcho, filmmaker Guillermo Del Toro (Pacific Rim, Pan’s Labyrinth, Hellboy) and the identify “Silent Hills.“
One other facet of the reveal is that the sport’s protagonist is seemingly performed by none aside from Norman Reedus — everybody’s favourite Dixon on The Strolling Lifeless, Daryl. If it have been simply him concerned and never Kojima or Del Toro we could be a bit fearful — Reedus’ final starring position in a recreation was the horrible Activision TWD tie-in.
What’s extra, this might be Del Toro’s probability at lastly getting concerned with video video games. Earlier than THQ famously was dismantled piece-by-piece in 2012, he was engaged on a title by the identify of Insane that also hasn’t seen the sunshine of day. Perhaps that might change quickly.
