Scottish studio No Code is developing “Silent Hill Townfall”. It’s a new installment in the long-running psychological horror franchise and is set to launch on undisclosed platforms at an unknown date.
Konami released official information about the future of the “Silent Hill” franchise last night and announced a new title with “Silent Hill: Townfall”.
The development is done at No Code. It’s the studio behind Stories Untold and Observation. Annapurna Interactive is involved as publisher and Konami is co-producing.
Puzzling first trailer
The first trailer for “Silent Hill Townfall” is quite cryptic and doesn’t reveal much about the game. Also, connected gameplay scenes are not part of the video. Ultimately, the scenes suggest that Townfall is a horror adventure that focuses more on the story.
The trailer mentions that someone is in town awaiting punishment. There are also brief gameplay snippets that indicate that Silent Hill: Townfall is being played in the first-person perspective.
Jon McKellan, Creative Director at No Code, commented on the announcement: “I still remember playing the original Silent Hill on PS1 in 1999 and became a fan from that moment. It’s a real honor for us to bring a new title to this series that both respects the source material but also makes something different out of it.”
The team can’t wait to come back in the new year and show more to the players. “In the meantime, it might be worth watching the trailer again to see what you may have missed,” McKellan continued.
Yesterday’s “Silent Hill” presentation was also used to announce several other projects. For example, after months of speculation, Konami has confirmed that a Silent Hill 2 remake is in the works at Bloober Team.
