Konami has revealed that the official name for Silent Hill 8 is not Silent Hill:The Ocho but rather Silent Hill: Downpour which makes more sense but is significantly less funny.    The plot of the game has players taking the role of Murphy Pendleton who finds himself in the woods outside the town after his prison bus crashes. 

The screens do look pretty solid and the game will be hitting this fall for the PS3 and Xbox 360.



First Screenshots, Soundtrack and Character Images Reveal Game Elements in What is to be the Scariest Silent Hill to Date

Silent Hill 8 Officially Named Silent Hill: Downpour

KONAMI, today released the first screenshots and music from the highly anticipated survival horror game, Silent Hill: Downpour. Making its return to "next generation" consoles this fall, Silent Hill: Downpour will bring a completely original storyline, and all-new haunting soundtrack as players find themselves stranded in the foggy, malevolent world of Silent Hill.



Silent Hill: Downpour starts as Murphy Pendleton, the game's main character, finds himself lost and alone in the woods after his prison transport bus crashes near the town of Silent Hill. What happens after is up to the player as they traverse an all-new Silent Hill environment that is expansive, yet claustrophobic. And though this sleepy town may feel desolate, the player is never truly alone.



Screenshots show highly detailed environments of the new Silent Hill, where seedy pasts and uncertain futures unify to create to a terrifying present. Included within is a sneak preview of the town, as well as two all-new environments: The Diner and The Devil's Pit.



Also released today is a ninety second sample of in-game music that is composed by Daniel Licht -- Silent Hill: Downpour's Music Composer -- who also scores the music for the hit Showtime series, "Dexter".



Silent Hill: Downpour is scheduled to be released in fall 2011 on Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system
