Silent Hills TGS Trailer Is Quite Disturbing

A disturbing Silent Hills teaser is released at this year's Tokyo Game Show

In August, a free game landed on the PSN titled P.T. Upon completion, players found out that P.T. (Playable Teaser) was actually a teaser for an upcoming Silent Hill game, titled Silent Hills. Helmed by famed game creator Hideo Kojima, and movie director Guillermo del Toro, information on the game has been scarce. Now, at this year's Tokyo Game Show, another creepy concept trailer was released.

The trailer (seen below) once again takes place in a hallway, and is just as creepy as P.T. was. The teaser, like P.T., is in first person, and looks great, despite how disturbing it is.

The Silent Hills teaser has features that one could expect from the series: screaming decapitated heads, bug covered walls, and giant grotesque monsters. If this trailer is an indication of where the Silent Hill series is heading, then it looks like it is in good hands.

Silent Hills is in developement by Kojima Productions. Along with Kojima and del Toro being attached to the project, The Walking Dead and The Boondock Saints actor Norman Reedus is in the game, presumably playing the lead character. Kojima has mentioned that the team "originally wanted you to pee your pants...Now we want you to s*** your pants."

There is still no definitive release date for Silent Hills. As P.T. is exclusive to the PlayStation 4, it is safe to assume that the game will come out on the system. Whether or not we will see Silent Hills on other platforms is at this point unknown.

    ...I feel like that I SHOULD be excited for this. I feel like I should be jumping out of my chair and flailing my arms over this new Silent Hill title. But...I'm not really sure. While I like Del Toro's and Hideo's work, Hideo will bring a lot of combat-type action to the tale and Del Toro will attempt to make it plenty dark. At least this point it's back in a Japanese company and they'll get a bit closer to the legacy that Team Silent left behind. Downpour is the only game since The Room that's managed to capture the old magic, with a tiny small exception to the end of Homecoming but that's it. And I'm not really sure what makes Norman Reedus so amazing. He's not a bad actor but using him specifically for the motion capture seems a bit odd.
    It's floating in a cloudy haze of I'm-really-not-sure-about-this-yet, I'll just have to see what ends up happening to it.
