P.T. aka Silent Hills (Covert PS4 Reveal)
08/12/2014 07:19 PM EDT
- Hideo Kojima, Guillermo Del Toro Team Up For New Silent Hill



Earlier today Sony teased a free PlayStation 4 download called P.T. Little did we know this would turn out to be a stealth reveal of a new Silent Hill project being headed by Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima and filmmaker Guillermo Del Toro (Pan's Labyrinth, The Orphanage).

Toward the end of the demo, a character turns around to reveal a virtual likeness of Norman Reedus, who is most famous for his role as Daryl Dixon in The Walking Dead. Reedus' first film, coincidentally, was Del Toro's horror flick Mimic. As this happens, the names Hideo Kojima and Guillermo Del Toro flash across the screen, culminating with the presumed title Silent Hills.

To see this reveal yourself, download P.T. from the PlayStation Store.


Pretty fun way to reveal!

I have no words for this at this moment. I'm still baffled. Is this for real? Am I real? Are you?

What.

I hope they can do the series justice because it has gone through the mud for number of years.

Just got back from a friend's house. We played the demo for about an hour, and I can say without hesitation, this is the scariest experience I've ever had gaming. You will burn calories playing this shit.
New sig on the way

I honestly can't sleep and I've only been watching gameplay on Youtube. This is some scary shit and I'm usually cynical to modern survival horror games. The atmosphere is absolutely incredible considering the only location is the same hallway repeated.

Spoilers: (Highlight to reveal)
That ghost is some next level scare shit too. Fuck me I can't stop thinking about it when she closes the cracked bathroom door when you peer inside.



Spoilers: (Highlight to reveal)
The radio telling you to turn around was creepy as fuck too. I couldn't even look at my computer screen if the player dared turned around which turned out to be nothing behind you after all


I'm actually very optimistic about this now that I watched this little tech demo. It may not exceed the first 4 games in the franchise, but it looks to be a HELL of a lot better than anything Homecoming, Downpour, Shattered Memories, and the rest of the piles of garbage EVER tried to pass off as "horror". Kojima, you have this suffering SH fan's attention.

- Kojima Talks About Silent Hills Reveal And How He Wants To Terrify You

At today's Metal Gear Solid V press conference, Hideo Kojima discussed P.T., the playable teaser that revealed he was working on a new Silent Hill game with filmmaker Guillermo Del Toro.

He said he wanted to be an industry first to do a reveal like this, and he intentionally made the last puzzle of P.T. extremely difficult. "I expected it to take a week to solve," Kojima said. "I was surprised it took less than one day."

Kojima mused that he underestimated his fans, but he calls his interactive teaser reveal, "a success." Kojima wanted people all over the world to unite through the internet and solve the puzzle with his big reward: the Silent Hills announcement.

He wanted to make sure nobody had any idea that this was coming; therefore, he purposely dropped the graphical and gameplay quality so people would believe it came from an unknown studio. He did, however, hide a hint in the studio name: 7780s. The area of Japan's Shizuoka prefecture 7780 square kilometers, and one translation for the words "Silent Hill" in Japanese is Shizuoka.


Racking up the cool points!

A week to solve? Damn, that's insane. All I've been doing today was watching different people play PT on Youtube. This teaser has been on my mind all day and I keep watching it despite knowing the outcomes. Finally a new Silent Hill that has potential. I never thought I would see the day.

So I'll admit that I could not make it all the way through the demo on my first try. I got stuck on one part, but just the thought of having to experience that "OH SHIT" moment again.....totally fucked with my head.

I will BEAT that demo....I WILL!

If anyone's just catching up, or hasn't been able to see the whole thing to its conclusion, these videos are pretty good. Full run is up now (no commentary): Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, Part 5, Part 6.

Really have enjoyed it. Best of Gamescom.
I'd like to know more about the actual puzzle mechanics/triggers.

I've heard too many ways to beat this damn thing. Someone on 4chan's board /v/ said they plugged their mic and laughed until the fetus and the telephone rang or something and it worked. No one else could recreate it though. I have no idea how to legitimately beat this thing.

Spoilers: (Highlight to reveal)
I understand to not taking anything from /v/ seriously let alone all of 4chan. That was just one example I found that stuck out the most and it made me lel the most.

I know one theory is having a headset hooked up to the system and answer the laugher when it's heard.

Well the series has been hit and miss mostly.

SH2, 4 and Downpour were the only one's with merit so far, but this looks promising as hell. And Del Toro is my favourite horror director.
