Five New Silent Hill: Downpour Screens

By Mark Delaney,
Fans of the critically-acclaimed, fear-inducing Silent Hill series have received a double dose of news out of Gamescom. While it was revealed that the Silent Hill HD Collection will now be available on Xbox 360 and several new screenshots of that were released, fans also would be quick to remember that the next installment in the series, Silent Hill: Downpour is on its way, too.

These five new screenshots show the main character, Murphy Pendleton, as well as the female officer he will encounter not far into the game. It also shows Murphy utilizing a lighter as seemingly his own source of light. That probably won't end well.

Downpour features melee weapon deterioration, new monsters, and an all new region of Silent Hill that is previously unexplored. Also, with the departure of longtime series composer, Akira Yamaoka, the music will be composed by Daniel Licht of Showtime's Dexter.

Venture back into the fog this October with Silent Hill: Downpour...if you dare.
