Siliconera reports that some footage for an unreleased installment in the Silent Hill video game franchise has surfaced on YouTube. You can check out the footage below. This is reportedly footage of a game pitched for the franchise by Climax Los Angeles that was going to be exclusive to the PlayStation 4.
The game was created using Unreal Engine 3. It was set in a southwestern town in Arizona that’s being corrupted from the memories of the past of Silent Hill. The main character was going to be Father Hector Santos, a priest from El Paso, Texas. Father Santos would then perform “holy rites and rituals,” and it seems Holy Water would’ve been important throughout the game for Father Santos to purify specific areas.
The game would have featured some of the similar cast of characters and monsters from the Silent Hill series, including Pyramid Head. Ultimately, Climax did not receive the greenlight from Konami to move forward with the project, but fans can check out the rough footage and wonder what might have been.
For fans, not seeing this game probably doesn’t sting as much overall as losing the Silent Hills project. But it’s still interesting to see a game project like this and wonder what might have happened with it. The project was renamed to Broken Covenant, and it reportedly would’ve been released in an episodic format. Apparently, there was a lack of interest from the publisher.
The video shows the lost pitch for the game using assets from Climax’s Silent Hill: Origins, which was release for the PSP.
