While the next trip to Silent Hill is still a solo journey,
there may be some room for friends – but only on Xbox Live Arcade.
In a translated interview from Italy’s Xbox 360 Magazine
posted on Hell Descent, Radek Marek, art director on Silent Hill: Downpour, let
it slip that while there are still no plans beyond a single-player campaign, “Konami
are investigating a separate chapter devoted entirely to the multiplayer. We do not know
the details but it should be an XBLA title that most players have to survive in
the town of Silent Hill.”
This isn’t new territory for Konami, who have done
multiplayer spin-offs of some of their franchises such as Metal Gear Online and
Castlevania: Harmony of Despair. Fellow Japanese publisher Capcom has recently
revealed they had great success with both Dead Rising 2: Case Zero and Dead
Rising 2: Case West, which have prompted the publisher to look into expanding
this idea with more franchises. It would be no surprise for another Japanese publisher to also consider offering smaller, downloadable experiences as well.
Silent Hill: Downpour is being developed by Vatra Games
and scheduled for release this fall on both Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
