Next, Konami revealed Silent Hill Townfall, developed by Annapurna Interactive and No Code Productions. Unfortunately not much is known about the game aside from the brief teaser trailer that revealed the game’s logo and a promise that more will be shown off sometime next year.

From there, Konami revealed that it is once again partnering with film director Christophe Gans for another Silent Hill film called Return to Silent Hill. When speaking about the script for this new film he said it was “a new Silent Hill movie that is totally independent from the two previous movies made and respects the way Silent Hill has evolved.”

According to Genvid CEO Jacon Navok, Ascension is a live, interactive series where “millions of fans will watch together as the chilling story unfolds” and “decisions you make mean life or death in the story.”

Finally, the event concluded with the reveal of Silent Hill F developed by NeoBards Entertainment. Though details were scarce about this closing announcement, it seems this game will be set in Japan as opposed to America.
