    How will you escape from the nightmare?

    While recovering in a military hospital from an injury he gained in service, Alex Shepherd is discharged early after receiving the news that his younger brother, Joshua, is missing.

    Alex returns home to the little, picturesque, lakeside town of Shepherds Glen, but all is not quite as he left it: his father has gone, his mother is catatonic, and the whole town is eerily quiet.

    Alex’s quest for the truth leads him to the mist-shrouded streets of the ominous town of Silent Hill and unearths some dark and disturbing secrets about his quaint hometown and his much loved family.

    With a plethora of weapons available to him, Alex must battle horrific monsters and solve deadly puzzles in order to find his father and unravel the mystery behind his brother’s disappearance.

    • An all-new enhanced combat system gives you a wide array of attacks, counter-attacks and dodges, along with more items to use as weapons
