Konami announced interactive streaming horror series Silent Hill: Ascension launches in 2023 for unannounced platforms. The upcoming Silent Hill title is developed by Genvid, Behaviour Interactive, Bad Robot Games, and dj2 Entertainment. Additionally, a brand-new trailer was unveiled.
In Silent Hill: Ascension, the audience will determine the outcome of events and characters collectively as they progress through the streaming title. Players can expect to follow multiple main characters that are “tormented” by new Silent Hill monsters. The new title will attempt to faithfully recreate the signature survival horror feel of Silent Hill later this year.
“We’ve gone the extra mile to create a dreamlike world in Silent Hill: Ascension with disturbing, hyper-detailed characters, other-worldly monsters, immersive atmospheres, and an overall audio and visual design that our team is very proud of,” said Bad Robot Games art director Chris Amaral. “The detailed environments, the eerie ambiance, and the realistic characters and monsters should really enhance the horror experience, creating something that is pure Silent Hill, while also feeling unique for the franchise.”
“Silent Hill: Ascension will captivate audiences with its immersive experience, spotlighting stunning visuals and live community-driven moments, all while exploring the psychological horror that has made the Silent Hill series so beloved by fans worldwide,” said Genvid Entertainment CEO Jacob Navok. “For the first time in the Silent Hill history, the collective audience will be able to influence the story, determining crucial outcomes for the complex, evolving characters in this series.”
“Silent Hill fans and horror audiences everywhere have a lot to look forward to,” said Silent Hill series producer Motoi Okamoto. “We are pleased to tell a new interactive story, in never-before-explored locations, alongside new characters that will be introduced to fans of the Silent Hill universe. It is you who will decide the fate of multiple main characters, which will unfold simultaneously around the globe.”
Here’s an overview of the upcoming horror title, via Genvid:
Silent Hill: Ascension follows multiple main characters from locations around the world tormented by new and terrifying Silent Hill monsters. Lurking in the shadows, these monsters threaten to consume people, their children, and entire towns as they’re drawn into the darkness by both recent murders and long suppressed guilt and fears.
In Silent Hill: Ascension the actions of millions will determine the outcome. By the time the last scene streams, which characters have survived? Will those who are left be redeemed, damned, or suffer? Even the project’s creators do not know how Silent Hill: Ascension will end. Instead, the character’s fates are in the audience’s hands.
