The anticipation for the arrival of Konami’s eighth installment of Silent Hill has become high amongst fans of the hit horror series after delays were reported a couple of months back. Now the publisher has provided confirmation of an actual release date for Silent Hill: Downpour at last.
We previously brought you news that suggested the game, which will be available across PS3 and Xbox 360 platforms, would not be arriving until the second quarter of this year. Now since the arrival date of the Silent Hill HD Collection was confirmed for release in March recently, it would seem that Konami finally has an idea of what their foreseeable future plans are and has indicated March 13th as the official release date for Silent Hill: Downpour.
As reported by VideoGamer it would appear that March is set to be the month of the year for fans of the Silent Hill franchise as the PS Vita exclusive, Silent Hill: Book of Memories is also expected that month on the 27th. For those that haven’t been keeping up with our Silent Hill news here is a quick recap of what you can expect from each of these arrivals come March.
Firstly Silent Hill: Downpour will be a first-person action like the previous titles which will see players facing close hand combat with weird creatures and a lot of puzzle-solving.
