TGS 2011: Silent Hill: Downpour trailer, featuring Korn

Check out the latest trailer for Silent Hill: Downpour. Fresh from the fog, the clip is set to the perennially angsty strains of Korn, taking you inside the head of the game's protagonist, escaped convict Murphy Pendleton. Stick around for the final minute, when things start to get authentically creepy, Silent Hill-style.

The prison bus crash setup ought to ring bells with anyone familiar with The Fugitive in any of its cinematic or televisual incarnations – though Downpour's antagonists are considerably creepier than a murderous one-armed man. As you can see from this clip, the title – set in a hitherto unexplored quarter of Silent Hill – isn't lacking in moody variations on the series' theme of guilt and punishment. Expect to see more of the game between now and the Q1 2012 release date.

    God, why not just have Nickelback for the OST? And is it just me, or did a lot of those scenes look like HD versions of Deadly Premonition?

    You know the game will revolve around the mystery of what his crime was that got him in prison, I say he murdered his wife and children.

    It's hard to get an idea from that trailer what the game's going to be like--does someone at Vatra love Korn, or does someone at Konami US's marketing department love Korn ('s potential to appeal to a wider audience). It definitely looks too chatty for a Silent Hill game, but I've given up on any post-Team Silent Silent Hill game feeling like a Silent Hill game. I'll just be happy if it's a halfway-decent Dead Space knock-off. I'll be thrilled if it's a halfway-decent Silent Hill knock-off!

    Damn that looks epic. The song fits perfectly. Haters be hating and making no sense.

    Oh, yeah my name kor2disturbed was actually supposed to be korn2disturbed but there was a typo, Because you know Korn and Disturbed are my 2 favorite bands, get it?
  • kor2disturbed - September 19, 2011 6:12 p.m.

    YES! My favorite band gets some love! Also the game looks good to.

    With Korn playing in the background, this comes across less as an actual trailer and more as an overly-extended preview MTV would play were the game somehow nominated for one of their MVAs. I want Team SILENT back.

    Wow, I can't believe the direction this series has gone in. There is no hope.
  • GoateeGuy615 - September 19, 2011 3:25 p.m.

    Does anyone else feel a throwback to the classic game "The Suffering"? They need to create the 3rd sequel or do a reboot. THAT I will play.
  • flabslapper - September 19, 2011 3:47 p.m.

    It does feel a little like the Suffering, and the that was a GREAT game so if it's as creepy as that I'll be happy!
  • radiodeaf - September 19, 2011 3:01 p.m.

    if only the song matched the video...and it doesn't... the game doesn't feel bold in anyway either... Japan is really lacking lately in it's story telling, or we are growing up. Either way a shift needs to happen

    ??? Japan...?
