- The new Silent Hill 2 trailer reveals freakier and more iconic enemy designs, turning up the terror level compared to the older engines.
- The footage showcases the Bubble Head Nurse, Flesh Lips, and the iconic Mannequins.
- Fans eagerly anticipate a more detailed look at Pyramid Head and hope for updates on the faithful recreation of the game. The release date remains unknown.
A new Silent Hill 2 trailer unveiled during Sony’s State of Play gave a look at several enemies, including the iconic monsters known as Mannequins. While the new footage did reveal plenty of locations and monsters in the game, Silent Hill 2‘s release date currently remains a mystery. However, the video does share a lot about the quality and progress made, and what fans of the series should expect from the new engine.
Silent Hill‘s monsters were already terrifying even with the older engines. Some fans would argue that Silent Hill 2 had the freakiest and best enemy designs to ever grace the series. The grotesque formations of many humanesque creatures are some of the stuff nightmares are made of. If the somewhat blocky shapes and blurry textures of the PS2 already made these monsters freaky, the upcoming Silent Hill 2 looks to have turned the notch up even more.
Silent Hill 2 Remake Needs to Get One Feature Right Above All Else
When the Silent Hill 2 remake releases, it will be important for Bloober Team to nail one crucial aspect of the original game’s identity.
New footage for the remake of Silent Hill 2 was revealed during the latest PlayStation State of Play. The combat trailer showed the first detailed glimpse of Silent Hill 2‘s freaky enemies, with protagonist James Sunderland holding his own in facing the monstrosities. Some of the enemies featured were the Bubble Head Nurse, the Flesh Lips, and the iconic Mannequins — which some fans casually refer to as leg monsters.
Silent Hill 2 Remake Gameplay Trailer
According to Silent Hill 2 lore, these enemies are based on the protagonist’s psyche, albeit with a vague design due to the character trying to forget certain details of his past. While the Bubble Head Nurse looks terrifying because it is more humanoid, the Mannequins tend to be more iconic in nature because of their legs-on-legs design. Not to mention, a certain scene where Pyramid Head interacts with the Mannequins has a place in many fans’ memories.
Speaking of Silent Hill‘s Pyramid Head, the trailer does seem to give a glimpse of the most well-known monster in the franchise. Unfortunately, the footage abruptly cuts before showing a more detailed look at the creature. Fans may also be looking forward to how all these creatures fill the world of Silent Hill once the game comes out. The micro-details of each enemy’s appearance may give more background to their scary designs in this new HD environment.
Several scenes in the trailer seem to imply some of the key moments and locations found in the game, but many fans are wondering how faithful the remake of Silent Hill 2 should be. With the scarcity of details, hopefully, the gameplay trailer is just the start of many future updates regarding the title, which should have a target release date in the future.
