Last week, the remake of “Silent Hill 2” was announced with a first trailer. In a new video, the scenes presented in the trailer are taken up and compared with the corresponding parts of the original released in 2001.
After the numerous rumors of the past few weeks, Konami finally officially announced the remake of the popular horror classic “Silent Hill 2” last week.
As already suspected, the new edition is being developed by the Polish studio Bloober Team, which horror fans should be familiar with through works like the “Layers of Fear” series or “The Medium”. Complementing the official announcement of the remake, the ElAnalistaDeBits YouTube channel has made available a new video that juxtaposes the scenes seen in the reveal trailer of the Silent Hill 2 remake with those from the 2001 PlayStation 2 published original are compared.
The remake, which according to Konami will offer “real next-gen graphics”, will be realized on the basis of Unreal Engine 5.
The remake will obviously be based on the original
Long-time fans of the legendary horror series who fear that the Bloober Team developers will incorporate various ideas of their own and deviate too far from the original can apparently rest easy. As the usually well-informed journalist Imran Khan cites sources familiar with the project reportedkeeps Konami Bloober Team on “a short leash” when it comes to possible innovations, which should suggest that the original is largely based on the original from 2001.
However, minor innovations were already promised in the course of the official announcement. These include the new over-the-shoulder camera from which the Silent Hill 2 remake is presented. In addition, there is a revised combat system, a newly designed graphic and support for the DualSense controller and 3D audio features, which, according to the developer, ensure a particularly dense atmosphere and an immersive gaming experience on the PlayStation 5.
