Konami today confirmed rumors that Silent Hill Origins will make a console appearance on the PlayStation 2. Rumors earlier had speculated that PS2 owners would eventually be able to play a console version of the previously PSP-only Silent Hill Origins.
In Silent Hill Origins, players will take on the role of Travis Grady, a truck driver making a routine delivery when he makes an unfortunate detour to the mysterious town of Silent Hill. Players will help Travis escape the city’s inhabitants and unravel the mystery of the strange hallucinations from Travis’ past, including visions that have plagued him since childhood.
For the PS2 and PSP versions of Silent Hill Origins, Konami is working on updated controls that maximize combat, allowing Travis to use his fists, his wits and an array of weapons including a meat cleaver, pool cue and sledgehammer to fight his way through the nightmarish world of Silent Hill. In addition, players will face multiple endings based on Travis’ actions.
Audio junkies will be pleased to note that Silent Hill Origins for PS2, much like the PSP version, will include the signature sound and music from renowned Silent Hill composer Akira Yamaoka.
