Silent Hill 2 Remake Fully Revealed With Release Date and New Trailers

There's so much Silent Hill news today, how can you just sit there and eat pizza?!

Of all the games shown during last night’s array of livestream broadcasts, Bloober Team’s Silent Hill 2 remake revealed a staggering amount of new trailer footage, along with what everyone has obviously been waiting for: the release date. Thankfully, Bloober and Konami graciously provided everything we need to know about the game going forward.

Everything Gathered From Silent Hill 2 Remake State of Play & Transmission Trailers

Between both of the trailers released by PlayStation’s State of Play and Konami’s Silent Hill Transmission livestreams, there is a lot of new content to break down. It undoubtedly leaves fans of the original game excited, fascinated, and of course understandably critical.

In the State of Play trailer, we’re formally introduced to Angela Orosco in the iconic graveyard scene from the original game. A young woman with a lot of trauma on her shoulders, Angela is one of the primary characters James interacts with throughout his journey, and the trailer places particularly heavy emphasis on her and her personal demons. We even get a good glimpse at “Abstract Daddy”, the vile creature that torments Angela in particular.

Later in Konami’s Silent Hill Transmission broadcast, a second, much longer gameplay trailer revealed a more paced, detailed look at the game, “faithfully remade in the original vision”.

While previously hidden in the first teasers for the game, we now have a full look at Maria, the ominous doppelganger of James’ deceased wife Mary who follows him through much of his journey across Silent Hill. While still sporting her iconic short blonde hair, she has a new, more modern look for the remake, which will certainly spark discussion among diehard fans.

Further on we also see James meet Laura, a mysterious young girl who seems to know Mary rather well. Further footage reveals James trying to keep her from running off and figuring out why she knows Mary. Eventually, the trailer dramatically ends with James’ encounter with one of the first bosses from the original game. Eddie Dombrowski is notably still absent from any of this footage, but a final trailer may finally give him his moment.

At the end of the State of Play trailer, Bloober Team finally revealed an official release date of October 8, 2024 for the Silent Hill 2 remake. Later on, during Konami’s Silent Hill Transmission broadcast, details about pre-ordering the game were also provided as well.

Silent Hill 2 remake is now available to pre-order either on Steam (PC) or the PlayStation store for PlayStation 5. There are two different editions of the game to choose from, including a Standard Edition and a Digital Deluxe Edition. Should you choose to pre-order the game, you’ll receive it along with some very interesting bonus items (as seen above).
