Silent Hill The Short Message Releasing Now – Launch Trailer Shown

The latest title in the Silent Hill series has just shadow dropped during tonights State of Play presentation.

While we still have to wait for the much-awaited remake of Silent Hill 2, which was also shown at the presentation, another, all-new title from the world of Silent HillSilent Hill The Short Message, has just been released. There have been some rumors floating around previously that the game might get a shadow drop-release, as in, the release being announced for “right now”, and now we have confirmation that that is indeed the case.

The entire game is free to play and should be available on the PlayStation store as of this moment. The game is based on Unreal Engine, yet, from what the trailers showed, it’s hard to tell just how much visual fidelity is actually in the title produced by Bloober Team and published by Konami.

The game reportedly takes place in Germany, which can be seen in the trailer, where it shows a canvas reading the German word “Skizzenblock” (“sketchbook”). The Short Message is an exploration-based psychological horror game, in which the player embodies a young woman named Anita, who finds herself in an abandoned building full of traps and twisted corridors.

The game appears to be a more modern take on the Silen Hill series, with text messaging being featured quite prominently in the trailer. We will have to see if this is for better or for worse, but it’s never a bad idea to explore new ground, especially for a franchise that has existed for this long.

This is the official info from the trailer’s description:

Following messages from her friend Maya, Anita finds herself at a crumbling apartment block, infamous for rumors of suicides. Drawn inside, Anita soon finds her sense of reality shattered as she encounters bizarre, otherworldly spaces, haunted by a twisted monster. Maya’s message was clear — “”can’t leave til you find it”” — but what is it that Anita is really looking for?

Silent Hill The Short Message is out now on PlayStation 5.
