Konami Digital Entertainment
sent us several fresh screenshots
from Silent Hill: Downpour
, illustrating this game being scheduled to be available this year on PS3 and Xbox 360. The new game begins after a prison transport vehicle careens off the road, leaving lone inmate Murphy Pendleton stranded in Silent Hill. As Pendleton takes in his new surroundings, users will encounter mind-bending puzzles and horrific creatures and otherworld terrors. Armed only with the everyday objects they can find - from wooden chairs to glass bottles - to fend off their enemies, fight or flight responses are left to the player as they unravel a dark storyline which will appeal to fans of the early, classic Silent Hill series.
