Silent Hill 2: Everything We Know About the Remake
Back in 2001, the popular Silent Hill 2 video game was released, giving horror fans a game that would age like fine wine. The game was playable not only on the PS2, but the PS3, Xbox 360 and more. In fact, many people still like to play the game, due to its fun mechanics and jump scares.
Now, in 2024, Konami is publishing a remake of Silent Hill 2, which is being developed by the Bloober Team.
Here is everything we know so far about the Silent Hill 2 Remake.
When will Silent Hill 2 be released?
After two decades passing by, fans will finally have a remake of one of the best horror games in video game history. When will the remake of Silent Hill 2 be released, though?
Well, at the moment, there is no definitive release date for the Silent Hill 2 remake. Still, though, fans could possibly expect the game to drop sometime in late 2024, due to Sony’s heavy marketing on the game.
Currently, the Bloober Team is working its hardest to give players the best experience possible when releasing this remake. Konami has also made it clear that they are hard at work creating brand new Silent Hill games, helping to feed horror enthusiasts.
While there is not an actual release window that has been announced, hopefully, we see the game release sometime in 2024.
Will Silent Hill 2 be Playable on Xbox, PlayStation, PC and Nintendo Switch?
While the original Silent Hill 2 was playable on various consoles, the remake sadly will not. The game will be playable on only two consoles, the PS5 and PC.
While the game may be playable on Microsoft Windows, that does not mean it will be available for Xbox. In the past, Sony has allowed for multiple of their exclusives, including Spider-Man and Zero Horizon Dawn, to be released on PC.
Nintendo Switch players will also not be getting the Silent Hill 2 remake on their platform, and will more than likely never see the game come to the Switch.
It will be interesting to see the future of Silent Hill, and if all games stay as PlayStation exclusives.
What Will Silent Hill 2 Remake be Rated?
Due to the original game being rated M for mature, it is assumed that the remake will be rated the very same. At the moment, though, the game is under “Rating Pending”, meaning there has been no official rating chosen.
Silent Hill is a terrifying concept, though, and anything under M would be disrespectful to the franchise. The amount of blood, horrifying creatures and more that this game gives us only works under an M rating.
Even the movies are heavily R-rated, showing exactly how scary the world in Silent Hill really is.
Will Silent Hill 2 Have a Multiplayer Mode?
Silent Hill 2 will not be a game you can play with your friends, as the original version was the same way. The game is supposed to give players an extremely lonely and terrifying feeling, which could easily be removed if being played with another person.
People jumping into the Silent Hill 2 remake will have to do so by themselves, braving the horrors that will come at them. While the game is just a single-player, it still has a plethora of difficult puzzles to solve and monsters to fight.
It is a shooting game, so despite being alone, you will still have a lot of enemies to fight off.
