That Konami (or any other entitled party) reacted so quickly tends to lend credence to the leak shared by Dusk Golem on Twitter and ResetEra . Also, we will be careful not to publish the different shots ourselves. But we can describe them to you as best we can.
A game like Resident Evil 7 ?
Dusk Golem released four images this morning supposedly from a build of a new Silent Hill. Dated 2020, these images may no longer be representative of what the game is like today.
Nevertheless, we can appreciate a very attractive technique, and graphics that are even reminiscent of what the RE Engine is capable of. One of the shots shows us a dilapidated, dimly lit room that immediately brings to mind some rooms in the Bakers' house in Resident Evil 7 .
On another image, we see a female face in close-up, of which certain parts of the skin hide enigmatic messages; others more dramatic like “ I hate myself ”.
The third image taken from the game places us in a very narrow corridor, bathed in red light and whose walls are completely covered with sheets of paper. At the end of the corridor, a creature whose head and hands resemble a cherry blossom tree stands in our way.
Finally, a last shot shows us the document inspection mechanism which, once again, is very reminiscent of Capcom's way of doing things on the latest Resident Evil .
Innovative game mechanics
In addition to the images, Dusk Golem says he got first-hand information regarding the gameplay of this new Silent Hill .
In particular, he reports the terms "SMS and messages", which directly echoes a rumor shared more than three years ago by journalist (now screenwriter at Sony Santa Monica) Alanah Pearce. At the time, she explained that the game Silent Hills , then developed for Konami by Hideo Kojima, would require its players to register, and sign a contract, which would authorize the game to contact them by e- mail and SMS to bring an even more immersive dimension to the title.
I heard that Silent Hills would require you to sign a waiver before playing because it would somehow interact with your real-world self, like by sending you emails or text messages as characters from the game even when you weren’t actively playing. https://t.co/aWezrmYA7v— Alanah Pearce (@Charalanahzard) November 19, 2019
Masahiro Iro, the historical creative director of the license, would also be involved in the project. Moreover, a last artwork shared by Dusk Golem is downright signed by the hand of the artist. It represents another view of the famous creature evoking a cherry blossom tree. A creature that Masahiro Ito was already teasing on his Twitter account in 2018.
