Silent Hill Homecoming for PC-DVD

Konami Digital Entertainment GmbH has confirmed the eagerly-awaited Silent Hill: Homecoming title for PLAYSTATION®3 and Xbox 360 will be released in November, while also confirming a PC-DVD version of the game to be shipped simultaneously.

The sixth installment in the landmark horror series, Silent Hill: Homecoming introduces Alex Shepherd, as the latest hero to become trapped within the mist-shrouded town. Alex has returned to his hometown of Shepherd’s Glen to investigate the sudden disappearance of his younger brother Joshua. In a journey that takes him from Shepherd’s Glen to Silent Hill, Alex must face the darkest of horrors in order to find his brother. As reality merges with the macabre, Alex will fight for his life against dark misshapen creatures and unravel a series of puzzles before the disappearance of his brother can be understood.

Silent Hill Homecoming marks the first appearance of the chilling series for PLAYSTATION®3 and Xbox 360, and is brought to life with stunningly detailed visuals. The PC-DVD version will be identical in all respects, with the game’s new monsters, twisting plot and all-pervading sense of evil combining to create a game that delivers scares and action with ease. Alex must survive attacks from the misshapen denizens of the town using an all-new enhanced combat system featuring attacks and counters, while a haunting score by acclaimed series composer Akira Yamaoka accompanies the unfolding action.
