‘Silent Hill’ Unreal Engine 5 Fan Video Recaptures 1999 Original


A fan-made concept trailer for an Unreal Engine 5 remake of the original silent Hill was posted on YouTube, and it captures the tone of the 1999 classic quite well.

The concept trailer (spotted by Wccftech) was created by TeaserPlayand as the title suggests it is not intended to be released as a full game but is simply created to give fans a taste of what a theoretical Unreal Engine 5 remake is silent Hill might look like.

The trailer begins with footage of Harry Mason waking up in his wrecked car, just like he did at the start of the original game. Despite this, the trailer isn’t entirely faithful, including the overlaid dialogue from Silent Hill 2 direct James Sunderland and Cheryl’s character model is replaced by Laura, who is also from the sequel. It also shows some zombie-like creatures, something not present in Silent Hill.

Still, the panning shots of the various locations and the sound design manage to recreate the atmosphere quite well, and it certainly retains the eerie feeling of the desolate supernatural city, even if the signature foggy effect has been toned down.

Even though it’s not a playable project, there have been rumblings from a few different silent Hill projects under construction. One of those rumors is a brand new game in development by an unspecified studio, with a leaker Twilight Golem posting pictures of the project on their Twitter account before being taken down.

Another is that Layers of fear developer Bloober Team is actually developing a remake to the fan-favorite silent hill 2, while publisher Annapurna Interactive could be working on a smaller, potentially episodic entry in the series. Of course, nothing is confirmed as of press time, so this should all be taken with a grain of salt.

In other news, a Ring of Elden The randomiser mod replaces each enemy with arguably the toughest boss in the game, Malenia.
