- Konami announced at the E3 that Silent Hill 3 will be available on the Playstation 2 in August 2003 in North America, in a juicy special package that will include the official soundtrack of the game.
Silent Hill 3 will feature an all-new graphic engine that will assure an impressive level of detail on all the sad disturbing creatures that inhabit Silent Hill. The environments, like in the previous instalments of the series, will be a living menace, a projection of the anguish of the main character.
This time, ceilings, walls, floors will breathe, pulsate, bleed, thus immersing the player into a dreadful nightmare.
"Silent Hill 3 continues the series' thrilling psychological journey with the introduction of Heather Morris," said Wilson Cheng, Product Manager at Konami of America, Inc. "Gamers will be amazed as they unravel the mystery that links her to the haunted town of Silent Hill." Storyline (from the official press release)
An otherwise normal girl, Heather quickly finds herself trapped in the eerie alternate reality of Silent Hill where she must battle frighteningly gruesome monsters at every turn. Using only her wits and a handful of weapons, Heather is trying to stay alive long enough to escape and unravel the mystery that has tied her to this disturbing town. Gamers will meet eccentric individuals including an intriguing detective Douglas, who shadows Heather's every move, and Claudia, a mysterious woman who speaks in riddles about her past and possible future destiny.
