Genvid Entertainment and Konami Digital Entertainment have recently released the new Silent Hill: Ascension trailer revealing new details about the game.
“I can feel it. Your guilt. So thick it chokes the air. You want to know how you can escape from this place. But you can’t… any more than you can escape yourself… and the pain you carry. It fills you up. Like a sickness. A disease, that you pass on to everyone you meet. Everyone you love.” – Silent Hill: Ascension Trailer narrator
Silent Hill: Ascension Offers a Whole New Way to Enjoy Silent Hill Horror
This new entry to the Silent Hill franchise is being developed by Genvid Entertainment and published by Konami. The developer is not that well known in the gaming industry, but their usual titles are interactive-based. Notable titles include The Walking Dead: Last Mile and Pac-Man Community. It just makes sense that the next Silent Hill title is going to be an interactive title.
Multiple Survivors, New Monsters to Fear
Silent Hill: Ascension will be following multiple main characters from locations around the world tormented by new and terrifying Silent Hill monsters. These monsters are lurking in the shadows and are threatening to eat people, their children, and entire towns as they are drawn into the darkness by both recent murders and long-suppressed guilt and fears.
You Determine Who Lives
In this game, the actions of the community will be the ones to determine the outcome. Players will never know who will survive at the end that even the project’s creators do not know too. No one knows who will survive to be redeemed, damned, or suffer.
“We’ve gone the extra mile to create a dreamlike world in SILENT HILL: Ascension with disturbing, hyper-detailed characters, other-worldly monsters, immersive atmospheres, and an overall audio and visual design that our team is very proud of,” said Chris Amaral, Art Director at Bad Robot Games. “The detailed environments, the eerie ambiance, and the realistic characters and monsters should really enhance the horror experience, creating something that is pure SILENT HILL, while also feeling unique for the franchise.”
“SILENT HILL: Ascension will captivate audiences with its immersive experience, spotlighting stunning visuals and live community-driven moments, all while exploring the psychological horror that has made the SILENT HILL series so beloved by fans worldwide. For the first time in the SILENT HILL history, the collective audience will be able to influence the story, determining crucial outcomes for the complex, evolving characters in this series,” said Jacob Navok, CEO of Genvid Entertainment.
Motio Okamoto, a producer of the SILENT HILL series for Konami Digital Entertainment had to say, “SILENT HILL fans and horror audiences everywhere have a lot to look forward to. We are pleased to tell a new interactive story, in never-before-explored locations, alongside new characters that will be introduced to fans of the SILENT HILL universe. It is you who will decide the fate of multiple main characters, which will unfold simultaneously around the globe.”
Silent Hill: Ascension launches this year. No platforms have been revealed.
