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.

Trailers

SILENT HILL: Townfall Teaser Trailer (4K:EN) | KONAMI

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.

Multiplayer

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.

Foamstars: release date speculation, trailers, gameplay, and more
Characters wielding strange weapons in the streets of a bright city in the Foamstars trailer.

If you have been waiting for a way to play a Splatoon-like game on a platform outside of a Nintendo console, Square Enix has heard your cries. Foamstars is the first major title to try and replicate that more family-friendly, party third-person shooter format, only instead of controlling squid kids shooting ink, you're playing as anime-inspired stars spraying foam across the map. The differences are far more than just in how it looks and the swap from ink to foam, though. If you're wondering whether this game is just a shameless clone or might actually offer a fun experience, here's everything we know about Foamstars.
Release date

Foamstars will be launching on February 6, 2024. It will also be launching for free on release as part of PlayStation Plus for anyone with an Essential or higher level subscription.

Indiana Jones and the Great Circle: release date window, trailers, gameplay, and more
Indiana Jones standing in the jungle.

Grab your fedora, whip, and pistol because Indiana Jones and the Great Circle is plotting a course to consoles soon. After being announced via a small teaser in 2021, we're now finally starting to put the pieces together on the mystery that is this new title from MachineGames. While many very popular and successful games have been inspired by the Indiana Jones film franchise, including Uncharted and Tomb Raider, Indy himself has yet to star in a true action-adventure game worthy of his legacy. Will this game be the one to remind audiences who the true pioneer of set-piece action and globe-trotting puzzle-solving is? Only time will tell, but we can at least guess based on all the clues we've unearthed.
Release date window
ndiana Jones and the Great Circle will be released is scheduled for release sometime in 2024. Considering the slate of titles currently announced from first-party publishers, and how little we've seen of this game in comparison, we'd expect it to arrive in the last few months of the year. Of course, it could always slip into next year as well.
Platforms

Indiana Jones and the Great Circle, coming from Xbox-owned MachineGames, will be an Xbox console exclusive, but also be available on PC.

Senua’s Saga: Hellblade 2: release date, trailers, gameplay, and more
Senua stares at a burning tree in Hellblade 2.

Given how impressive Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice was, it seemed inevitable that there would be a sequel. The game, despite being made independently by Ninja Theory, blew even the highest-budget games on the market out of the water in terms of graphical fidelity and storytelling. Microsoft realized this potential as well and purchased the studio to provide a bigger budget to the team for the eventual sequel and to secure it as a console exclusive for its then-unreleased Xbox Series X and S systems.

Senua's Saga: Hellblade 2 was one of the earliest games shown off for the Xbox Series X and S, and was even initially thought to be one of the system's launch titles. That didn't come to pass, but the team has taken that extra time to craft this sequel into something that looks to be even more impressive than the original. Between the first Game Awards event where the game was announced and the latest footage we've seen, we have a very solid understanding of the important details surrounding this sequel. We have all the information you need to know about Senua's Saga: Hellblade 2.
