Silent Hills may let you choose between first and third person views


“Lucky” might just describe Usman Ihtsham, an editor from WhatIfGaming who had a quick chance to talk with Hideo Kojima at Gamescom.  Of course they talked about Silent Hills.  Of course they did.

When asked about whether the game would be first or third person perspective, Kojima had this to say:

Not sure yet.  Development is cycling between either allowing players to choose to play the whole game in first-person or third-person, or keeping it fix4ed third person and having some first-person only.  Either way, we want to do something with first-person.  The game will not be out more than likely 2016.  Lots of time left.

Kojima also fielded a question regarding whether the game would be linear, or more open-world.

All I can say is Fox Engine is meant for open world.  I cannot discuss more on the game design itself in detail yet.

This story can’t be confirmed at the moment, but it wouldn’t be the first time that Silent Hill tinkered with the perspective.  The Room was first-person inside the apartment, but third-person outside.  Seeing as how PT made my head spin for all the right and all the wrong reasons I’d be happy with a third-person perspective.
