The P.T. interactive demo that Sony announced at the Gamescom conference & subsequently released earlier today was sneakily a teaser for another game entirely… a new ‘Silent Hill’ from Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima and acclaimed film director Guillermo del Toro.
Kojima has been teasing the new game for months and this was his creative way of revealing the details. At the end of the P.T. demo, the game switches to a cut scene and shows a character walking through a quiet, foggy city street. Hideo Kojima and Guillermo del Toro’s names gently fade onto screen just before the main character turns around, who is non-other than The Walking Dead’s Norman Reedus. Akira Yamaoka’s Silent Hill theme kicks in and the name ‘Silent Hills’ is revealed.
You can check out the teaser reveal from the interactive demo below, its taken from Twitch user SOAPYWARPIG‘s stream and includes her excited reaction as she discovers the ruse. Below that, there is just the teaser.
