E3 2011: Silent Hill Downpour Screens and Info

By Michelle Balsan, 5 years ago
Konami revealed several new screens and pieces of information about their Vatra Games-developed, horror-title, Silent Hill Downpour, during their time at E3 this year.

We learned back in January that the game features Murphy Pendleton, a convict who winds up surviving an unfortunate bus accident involving his prison transport. Pendleton sees this as a chance for freedom and wanders into the town of Silent Hill as he attempts his escape. Lucky fellow, right?
