Silent Hill: Downpour Finally Gets Patched

By Mark Delaney, 6 years ago
If you've tried to play Silent Hill: Downpour over the past few days, you might have noticed the game finally received a much-needed title update. We held off on reporting this because Konami hadn't yet revealed what the patch had specifically fixed. Luckily for anyone daring enough to venture into town, the publisher has now released the full patch notes, just in time for All Hallow's Eve.

Today, Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. announced a patch and product update for Silent Hill: Downpour, the critically acclaimed survival horror title, originally released in March 2012. The online patch, available via XBOX Live, enhances the gameplay experience by improving features and bugs within the game, including, but not limited to:

o Improved frame rate

o Fixed save game system

o Fixed bugs in "Homeless" side quest/mission

o Several other performance enhancements/bug fixes
Alongside the patch, which will surely please those of us who have played the game and those who have held off until the patch arrived, Konami also revealed that the game will be made available on the Games on Demand service on October 30th (prices varying by region).
