You can pick up the classic Konami horror from the GOG website (opens in new tab) for £7.19 / $9.99, which lists some of the features you can expect to see if you're new to the game. Described as a "riveting Silent Hill adventure with shocking plot twists", it also highlights how you fend off new monsters including ghosts "that defy physical reality." 

The re-release also includes new environments including an "otherworldly forest and grisly prison" and has full controller support. It really is a great time to play this horror given that we're just entering the Halloween season. 

The rating (opens in new tab), spotted by Gematsu (opens in new tab), listed the game for release on PC today, October 2, which of course turned out to be the official launch date. A host of Konami games have come to the PC platform GOG recently, with the re-release of Metal Gear, Metal Gear Solid, Metal Gear Solid 2: Substance. 

As well as Snake's return to the platform, the Konami Collector's Series: Castlevania and Contra also got a re-release on PC at the same time. The collection includes Castlevania, Castlevania 2: Simon's Quest, and Castlevania 3: Dracula's Curse, along with Contra and Super C. 

Silent Hill 4: The Room first released back in 2004, and originally released on PC, PS2, and Xbox. The fourth installment in the Silent Hill series sees you play as Henry Townsend who finds himself trapped in his own apartment. With no way out, and plagued by nightmares, Henry ends up exploring strange supernatural worlds where he begins to learn of a serial killer. 

Outside of Konami, we've also seen some other classics re-emerge on PC recently, with the surprise launch of the cult classic shooter, Freedom Fighters. First released back in 2003 on PC, Xbox, PS2, and GameCube, the game also came to GOG.

I started out writing for the games section of a student-run website as an undergrad, and continued to write about games in my free time during retail and temp jobs for a number of years. Eventually, I earned an MA in magazine journalism at Cardiff University, and soon after got my first official role in the industry as a content editor for Stuff magazine. After writing about all things tech and games-related, I then did a brief stint as a freelancer before I landed my role as a staff writer here at GamesRadar+. Now I get to write features, previews, and reviews, and when I'm not doing that, you can usually find me lost in any one of the Dragon Age or Mass Effect games, tucking into another delightful indie, or drinking far too much tea for my own good.
