Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima and Pacific Rim director Guillermo del Toro are teaming up to produce Konami’s next big horror game.
At Gamescom 2014, Kojima directed gamers towards a free game, “P.T.” on the PlayStation Network for the PlayStation 4.
The game is supposedly produced by a “7780s Studio,” but as it turns out, it is really a “playable trailer” for the upcoming Konami horror game, Silent Hills.
“P.T.” is a first-person puzzler that sees the player walking through the same stretch of hallway in endless loops until the player can trigger the right clues and scares.
The only way to trigger these scenes and clues is by pressing R3 on the controller to “zoom in” on whatever the player thinks is a game prompt.
After completing the game, the player will get to view the trailer, which shows a man walking down an empty, desolate street, before Kojima and Del Toro’s name pop up.
The man then turns to face the camera and lo and behold, it is The Walking Dead‘s Norman Reedus, or perhaps a character bearing his likeness.
The screen fades to white, and the words “Silent Hills” flash forward, before the video/game ends.
Kojima had tweeted out in April 2013 that he wanted to do “3D capture Ryan Gosling and Norman Reedus and make game with them,” there might be a possibility that Gosling does feature in the final game.
The last Silent Hill game was Book of Memories, and it was released in 2012 for the PlayStation Vita.
Silent Hill 2 and 3 are available for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
Silent Hills should be a PS4 game, given its debut, and Konami has not announced if it is releasing the game for other platforms.
