Hideo Kojima collaborating with Guillermo Del Toro on ‘Silent Hills’

Sony’s Gamescom press conference featured some mysterious footage for a horror game named P.T, developed by ‘7780s Studio’. In addition, an ‘interactive teaser’ was made available through PSN. Upon completing it, the true identity of this game was revealed through a cutscene.

It turns out that P.T. is actually a new project by Hideo Kojima and Guillermo del Toro, featuring The Walking Dead’s Norman Reedus. The game is running on Kojima Productions’ Fox Engine, and is simply called ‘Silent Hills’.

Here are some screenshots from the ending cutscene of the teaser:

    I’m confused . Did Kojima and Guillermo only collaborate on t43 teaser demo or for actual game?

    • Golgari

      Basically P.T. was a teaser for Kojima’s and Guillermo’s “New” Silent Hill game on a Fox engine for Next Gen consoles (PS4 for now)

      • BigBoss_88

        Yes playable teaser for upcoming game. They will make the new SH good, I just know it <3. Last Silent Hill I liked was maybe 3, from years ago :(. Then the developer team changed I think.

        • psychomantis18

          Team Silent stopped after Silent Hill 4: The Room which was originally not even supposed to be a Silent Hill game. So you are essentially correct as Silent Hill 3 was the last intended Silent Hill game by Team Silent. The Room was great though I thought. This however is gaming news made in heaven. As a huge fan of Kojima, Del Toro, Silent Hill and all things horror I…. yep… i’ve soiled myself

          • BigBoss_88

            But at least, SH hasn’t gone off the rails in a huge way like RE did :). It still has tried to remain that that psychological horror style, but it just wasn’t done imo in the right way for years. I was first excited for Downpour, but in the end I never even finished it. There was this some point, where I just didn’t want to continue anymore.

            But this Silent Hills…just by seeing those names, it tells you that it’s gonna be awesome.

          • psychomantis18

            Agree (but I did think Downpour was a great improvement). The demo for Silent Hills was fantastic.
            Very exciting….

            I still believe Silent Hill 4 is truly the last proper Silent Hill.

            I love the concept of being stuck in one room and traveling in other worlds. It feels different and very original to be worthy of the title Silent Hill.

            Each Silent HIll games are different. If you compare 1-4 all have their own different themes that take place in the same area(except for 4).

            Everything post Silent Hill 4 is considered non-canon for me. Even Silent Hill Origins(0 in Japan) fucked up the story, even though 1 is already finished and all they had to do is fill the gaps which they failed to do.

            Can’t wait for the next one though! It’s definitely gonna be different, but i’m glad that finally a Japanese team will be handling this with the help of Toro and and probably some more Hollywood actors.

          • psychomantis18

            True. Its great that its back in the hands of Japanese developers as I think they have much different (and often better) sensibilities when it comes to horror games. Del Toro will be a great driving force also.

  • BigBoss_88

    Played the teaser for about 30 min yesterday on PS4, before had to go sleep :P. Will continue today evening. It had such creepy atmosphere and those graphics mmm :D! Playing in dark room, headphones on was amazing.

    When I heard Kojima talk about SH months ago, I never imagined he would actually goddamn DO
    IT! And with Guillermo and Norman omg O_O. If something can make my favorite horror series Silent Hill awesome again, it will be this super combination !
    I’m so hyped to see more :D!

    • “But then something happened that no one could have predicted.” (Eva, MGS3)

  • Golgari

    99% that Kojima is involved in this as only producer and maybe co-writer.

    He won’t make it.

    • mikeyyytexas

      Well Kojima has been saying that he’s been wanting to do something other than metal gear for a long, long time. Maybe this is his opportunity to do so; it’s something that he’s interested in and it may just be something fresh for him.

      then he can come back and make more metal gear games lol

      • Golgari

        I think this comment is going for New Ip. I’m noit sure that he is interested in directing Silent Hill. I think he is interested in the game as a producer.

        • mikeyyytexas

          I can agree with that… whatever it is, I just hope Kojima and Del Toro are happy contributing to this game.

      • BigBoss_88

        Yeah he has said that indeed. I’m sure many fans will be pleased to see Kojima work on other project too. I love MGS, but I’ve been wanting to see what other games etc Kojima can come up with :D, just like ZoE years ago.

    • psychomantis18

      Well Del Toro has to do something. I would hope that they do a 50/50 with Kojima looking after the gameplay and tech side of things as well as HOPEFULLY acting as co-writer whilst Del Toro handles direction and writing duties.

  • Zven

    this almost seems too good to be true, what an amazing surprise. I love love love The Walking Dead and Guillermo del Toro is great, add Kojima to the mix and wow… Only problem is I’m terrified of horror games, as a matter of fact I watched someone played the demo and I screamed so loud at the end. So I’m really looking forward to this but I don’t know if I’ll be able to play it lol

    • mikeyyytexas

      i’m kinda in the same boat lol I hate being a scaredy cat 🙁

  • PrinceHeir

    Can’t wait for this one 🙂

    Maybe Kojima can also pull a ZO3 teaser at TGS 2014!

    Come on now, let’s do a ZOE on Fox Engine!!!

  • Zven

    man that baby in the bathroom in the demo reminds me of Eraserhead… talk about creepy

  • i think this is one of the most jaw dropping (gaming) news i’ve heard in the last months, or maybe the whole year, and i’m not even a big silent hill fan, but now i’m really interested in this, it sounds so good that it can’t be a bad game, and as much as i love metal gear, i’m happy to see kojima working on something else, though we don’t know how much he’ll be involved.

    when it was revealed as silent hills i though PT meant kojiPro and Toro (lol), but it turns out it was playable teaser after all, i’m expecting a lot about this game

  • BigBoss_88

    Do you my friends know what Silent Hills need :D? The ending of this trailer reminded me of it.
    Mr. Akira Yamaoka, who we can thank for the great soundtracks from Silent Hill games! I hope he returns 🙂 !

  • Solid Snakes Revenge

    I thought pt was pretty cool and scary but I kinda hope they go with 3rd person view for silent hills. And I also hope Kojima goes back to MG after he’s done. I want to see the saga completed.

    • BigBoss_88

      I think they’ll make it 3rd person like the Silent Hill games have always been. I personally like 3rd person more, but PT 1st person was pretty amazing. Or then they mix it, 1st person inside houses but not outside.

      • Solid Snakes Revenge

        Yeah I really enjoyed the first person view in pt and I actually think it being first person made it more scary but I just hope they don’t make silent hills like that. The mix wouldn’t be a bad idea. In my opinion 3rd person games interest me more so I hope they stay true to the series.
