Who can stop the rain?
Silent Hill Downpour is the story of a broken convict named Murphy Pendleton. Due to his bad reputation, he is being transferred to the dreaded Overlook Penitentiary. All hope is lost. The long drive lasts long into the rainy night, where Murphy’s nightmares return. While passing by Silent Hill, the bus careens off one of the town’s trademark cliffs. When Murphy comes to, his cuffs are gone; there’s no one in sight and he sets off toward what he hopes is freedom. What he gets is something much worse…
Silent Hill Downpour is the 8th installment in the Silent Hill series. It is the first to use rain since the first game, where it was introduced very briefly. Much like in the 2006 movie adaptation and Silent Hill: Homecoming, Silent Hill Downpour shows the transformation between foggy and Otherworld states in real time. This is the first time in which side quests were made available, creating an open world to explore.
