The Walking Dead’s Norman Reedus Stars In First Clip For Hideo Kojima’s Silent Hill



After creeping onto the PlayStation Store yesterday evening and successfully terrifying umpteen gamers, the unusual P.T. (aka Playable Teaser) was revealed as a set-up for Hideo Kojima and Guillermo del Toro’s all-new Silent Hill Game.

Of course, given that Kojima was involved, the idiosyncratic developer chose to blindside the entire industry by releasing the demo under 7780s studio — a hitherto unknown company — thereby allowing the gaming community to unravel the mystery for themselves (which they inevitably did).

Upon completing the aforementioned demo, ardent players were treated to a brief teaser trailer for the new entry in the renown horror franchise, one which also features Norman Reedus — fan favourite Daryl from The Walking Dead — in the starring role. The atmospheric footage, which you can glimpse below, doesn’t reveal much in terms of story, though it does see Reedus’ character walking tentatively down an abandoned street — an image that has become all to familiar with fans of the series.

Currently titled as Silent Hills, not much is known about the forthcoming project; though fans will hope that this latest iteration will serve to erase the memory of 2012’s rather underwhelming Silent Hill: Downpour.

With both Kojima and del Toro overseeing the project, it’ll be intriguing to see how the talented duo form a union between the stylized gameplay associated with the former along with the latter’s gothic aesthetic. Of course, del Toro is no stranger to the horror genre himself — having directed the likes of The Devil’s Backbone and Mimic — so it’ll be fascinating to see how his cinematic sensibilities transfer to the video game medium.

Currently, this latest instalment in the Silent Hill franchise is without a release date, though we’ll be sure to keep you updated as more information appears.
