Silent Hill 2’s PS5 Game Remake: We have come a long way since the PlayStation 2. Back then, loading screens were the norm, with some games displaying one every time the player moved from one room to another. In particular, Silent Hill 2 suffers from this problem, especially when you explore Brookhaven Hospital and Lakeview Hotel.
Thanks to solid-state storage, Silent Hill 2’s remake will have absolutely no cutscenes.
Mateusz Lenart, the creative director and lead designer of the Silent Hill 2 remake, provided some additional technical details regarding how Bloober Team is remaking the psychological horror game to be even more terrifying. In addition to the new motion capture technology for improved facial expressions and animation, the PS5’s SSD storage means there will be no loading screens to interrupt the action.
As a result of the superfast data streaming, players will not encounter any loading screens while exploring the entirety of the Silent Hill town,” said Lenart. As a plus, this will allow you to immerse yourself in Silent Hill to a much greater extent than ever before. The downside is that you may not be able to save yourself from monsters simply by entering an empty room.
Bloober Team will also implement an over-the-shoulder camera instead of the mostly fixed cameras of Silent Hill 2. Now that James can see what is coming for him, Bloober Team will have to rebuild Silent Hill 2’s combat system and various set-piece scenes from the original game.
Even though the game is still in development, anyone who has seen the trailer last night will agree that it already looks fantastic. Silent Hill 2 will have the highest visual fidelity and creepiest lighting thanks to Unreal Engine 5, which uses Lumen and Nanite technology.
The combination of these technologies will make Silent Hill 2 an even more harrowing and unforgettable experience for old and new fans alike. We are confident that we can breathe new life into the gameplay of this cult classic,” Lenart concluded. This will result in a Silent Hill game that looks and sounds better than anything that has come before.”
