Silent Hill Townfall: Release date rumors, trailers, gameplay

Horror fans are celebrating thanks to the slew of Silent Hill announcements made in October 2022. After the crushing cancellation of P.T, fans of the iconic survival horror franchise were left wondering if the series would ever return. Now, not only are we getting a remake of what many consider the best game in the franchise, Silent Hill 2, but three other new Silent Hill titles are also on the way. While we got a decent look at the remake, the other titles are still very much a mystery.

Silent Hill Townfall is one of the most interesting and promising of these new projects. While the teaser was extremely brief and left more than a little up for speculation, there are some clues that could point to what type of game it will be. If you’re ready to dive into the mysterious town of Silent Hill one more time, here’s everything we know about Silent Hill Townfall.

Release date

Silent Hill Townfall has no current release date or release window. The only thing we know is that Director Jon McKellan stated during the announcement stream that more would be shown in 2023. Based on that, we don’t expect this game to come out next year, with 2024 being a possibility depending on what is shown next.

Another unfortunate mystery surrounding Silent Hill Townfall are the platforms we will be able to play it on. No platforms were listed in the trailer, meaning it could come to any or all of them. We already know Silent Hill 2 remake will be a PlayStation 5 console exclusive.

Our only teaser for Silent Hill Townfall is incredibly brief and cryptic.

We get a few shots of static and water as someone asks why “you are here.”. They state that “you’re to be punished” before more seemingly disparate lines from the same speaker come in. We primarily see a CRTV on a desk, with periodic cuts to a shore. The screen does flash with static and some symbols and colors, perhaps hiding a message waiting to be decoded. The teaser ends on a blood red shot of the beach.

Obviously, that’s not much to go on, except that it confirms the game is being published by Annapurna and developed by No Code. No Code has previously worked on some very well regarded horror games Stories Untold and Observation.

Well, aside from being some type of horror game, it’s impossible to tell how Silent Hill Townfall will actually play. If it is anything like No Code’s prior games, however, it could be more in the adventure game genre where you play a more indirect role in how you interact with the story.


No Code has never made a multiplayer game, and the series certainly isn’t built for it, so we feel pretty confidant guessing Silent Hill Townfall will not have multiplayer.

We have no clue as to when Silent Hill Townfall will hit stores, or even what platforms it will come to. Until such time, we’ll have to hold off on preordering.

Alan Wake 2: release date, trailers, gameplay, preorder, and more
Alan Wake.

The original Alan Wake is a game that went through quite a troubled development before it was finally released. After many iterations and changes in scope and direction, the final product was initially a cult hit but didn't hit the mass market it needed -- at least not initially. After two DLC episodes, a sequel was in the works to build upon the first game and revive some of the elements that had to be cut from the first in order for it to ship, but this was ultimately not meant to be. The sequel was canceled and a smaller downloadable game, Alan Wake's American Nightmare, was released instead.

Since then, we hadn't heard from our intrepid writer until he showed up in a very unlikely place. Featured in the AWE expansion for a completely different game, Control, Alan was back in the picture. With a remaster of the initial game catching everyone up on his first appearance, now was the perfect time to announce that the long-awaited sequel was back in development. We haven't found all the manuscript pages yet, but here is everything we know about Alan Wake 2.

Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 gets wild gameplay trailer, but no release date
Kraven the Hunter appears in Marvel's Spider-Man 2.

Insomniac Games showed off a new gameplay trailer for Marvel's Spider-Man 2 during Sony's May 2023 PlayStation Showcase. The action-packed clip showed off its villain, the iconic Kraven the Hunter, but it didn't give the game a release date. It's still only scheduled for fall 2023.

The new trailer gave us our closest glimpse at Sony's upcoming release we've seen yet. It begins with a very cinematic clip showing off classic Spider-Man villain Kraven the Hunter. From there, we flash-forward a bit to New York City, where we see Peter Parker and Miles Morales working together to save the city. Parker has a fancy new black suit with a lot of wild powers. In the trailer, we see multiple black spider arms coming out of it and slamming enemies.
