Silent Hill 2 Remake Announced

At today's SILENT HILL Transmission, Konami broke its silence on several games, including a Silent Hill 2 Remake in the works at horror specialist Bloober Team. The PlayStation.Blog describes how the classic psychological/horror game is being rebuilt from the ground up on Unreal Engine 5 for release on PC and PlayStation. Here's a new Teaser Trailer, the Steam Listing, and a bit on the plan:
Silent Hill 2 is a beloved and timeless classic – it’s almost a cliche to say it out loud, but it’s just so true for many of the Bloober Team members. This is also the reason why we approach working on the remake with such great care and respect for the original game.

With that in mind, one of our primary goals is to preserve the atmosphere that made Silent Hill 2 so exceptional, while also modernizing many aspects of the game’s overall gameplay. We are working closely with the original creators, including Akira Yamaoka and Masahiro Ito, to ensure we’re keeping that unique Silent Hill feel intact.

One of the new elements that you could spot in the reveal trailer is the adoption of an over-the-shoulder camera. With that change we want to immerse players even deeper into the game, make them feel like they are a part of this unreal world, and deliver them a more visceral experience across the board.
