Silent Hill: Origins Screenshots



Konami Digital Entertainment GmbH has announced that its hugely popular Silent Hill Origins title is to be released for PlayStation®2 in May following its enormous success as a PSP® (PlayStation®Portable) title.

Due for release in May, Silent Hill Origins acts as a prequel to the popular horror series, and follows troubled truck driver, Travis Grady, who gets stuck in the terrifying town while making a routine delivery. He quickly discovers that all is not well in the fog-smothered town, and that its shrouded streets hide grotesque creatures and dark secrets. Moreover, as he explores the seemingly abandoned town, Grady is confronted by crippling memories from his troubled past and it becomes clear he must escape from Silent Hill while resolving the memories that have plagued him since childhood.

The PlayStation 2 version offers a visually enhanced version of the PSP® game, with a host of elements that are new to the franchise and provide the player with an enhanced sensation of isolation. While the game retains the cinematic experience of the previous games, it also has an intuitive ‘Cineractive System’ that allows players to face down horrifying monsters while the control scheme changes intuitively for each situation. Players also have an enhanced camera system that actively tracks Travis, while fans of the series will revel in Silent Hill Origins’ original soundtrack by series composer Akira Yamaoka.

"It is fantastic to bring the Silent Hill series back to the format that was so integral to its success,”, said Hans-Joachim Amann, Head of European Product Management for Konami Digital Entertainment GmbH. “Silent Hill Origins is a stunning prelude that explains some of the mystery and mythos of the series, and we look forward to inviting Silent Hill’s many fans back to its doom-laden streets.”
