From there, Konami featured what lies ahead for Silent Hill. An exciting interactive game is coming next year entitled Silent Hill Ascension. The game will be coming from Genvid, Bad Robot, Behaviour and DJ2. It brings Silent Hill to a whole new world. In Ascension, players get to interact and decide what happens during the game. Without a reset button, the game result becomes canon to Silent Hill. And, it goes live in 2023.

The last feature and absolutely not the least is another game in development, Silent Hill f. The aesthetics of the featured teaser is remarkable. As one watches, it gives off the eerie and scary vibe of Silent Hill yet so beautiful that one can’t look away. Somehow plant-life has consumed the world. Furthermore, it appears to devour everything in its path. Thus, making a place that is enchanting and dangerous at the same time.

Silent Hill has long intrigued, scared and thrilled people with its story and gameplay. Crossing the entertainment platform from videogame to the theatrical movies is inevitable. Perhaps, this third movie will fare better with the critics. Since they have taken more time to refine its aspects story wise. Visual effects will be understandably expected to be on par with the videogame. But as the director has said, the heart of the movie is in its story.

Is it worth it to return to the eternally burning town?
