New Silent Hill series officially unveiled in terrifying new trailer

New Silent Hill series officially unveiled in terrifying new trailer

Silent Hill: Ascension is all about interactive scares

Konami and developer Genvid have shared the first official look at the upcoming Silent Hill: Ascension - an interactive horror series in which players work together to decide the fates of its characters.

While Silent Hill: Ascension was first announced alongside a wealth of other Silent Hill titles last year, this is our first real glimpse at what Konami and Genvid have planned for us. Tantalisingly, we're told that that viewers will have a “direct and permanent influence on the story and characters of Silent Hill: Ascension.

Check out the trailer below:

“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,” said producer Motoi Okamoto in a press release. “It is you who will decide the fate of multiple main characters, which will unfold simultaneously around the globe.”

Silent Hill: Ascension certainly ambitious. Branching storylines that are defined by player choice is certainly nothing new, but for millions of players around the world to be working towards these outcomes together is something else entirely. Heck, even the project's creators don't yet know how the series will end.

We'll be able to watch Silent Hill: Ascension over on the series’ official website and various currently unspecified devices. We'd guess that Konami will be doing what it can to get some kind of app working on smart TVs and mobiles.

It's certainly a good time to be a Silent Hill fan. In the Silent Hill Transmission stream back in October we saw the Silent Hill 2 remake from Bloober Team, Silent Hill Townfall from No Code, Silent Hill Ascension from GENVID and of course Silent Hill f from Neobards. Between this and the recently revealed Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater remake, it seems Konami has remembered what we used to love about them.
