Silent Hill 2 remake finally gets release date and new trailer

In my restless dreams, I see a release date!

After months upon months of waiting as anxiously as anyone trying in vain to hide from Pyramid Head, PlayStation's annual State of Play livestream has revealed a much-needed brand new trailer for Bloober Team's Silent Hill 2 remake. Not only that, we finally have an official release date that's just in time for the spooky season.

What's new in the Silent Hill 2 State of Play trailer

There was plenty of new content to take in and break down in Silent Hill 2's State of Play trailer, and we almost don't even know where to start. The trailer begins with a faithful rendition of James Sunderland's first encounter with Angela Orosco, who we now see in full view. As we already saw with James, the character design in the remake is leaning toward a very realistic look rather than something more stylized.

We also evidently have new voice acting to look forward to across the board, and so far it sounds pretty polished. Their conversation continues off-screen as we get a sequence of various moments throughout the game, from James wandering the foggy streets, hurling himself into the depths of the Historical Society, and solving the game's many abstract puzzles.

The overarching theme of the trailer leans heavily on Angela's personal torment, with multiple glimpses of the infamous "Abstract Daddy" monster that stalks her in the original game.

Pyramid Head and other notable characters may be noticeably absent from this trailer, but it still presents a much more paced and polished version of what our experience will be in Silent Hill this time around. As seen at the end, the game itself will be called "Silent Hill 2", in full faith to the original title.
