E3 is technically only in it’s first day, since yesterday’s press conferences were really just the appetizer for what is looking to be another fantastic year to be a geek (though, really, when is it not a great time to be one?). With all the stunning news and surprising announcements, it’s been a little lacking in the horror department so far. Fortunately, today brought with it some fresh screens from one of my most anticipated horror games of the year, Silent Hill: Downpour.
The game is definitely giving off an Alan Wake vibe, though that’s certainly not a bad thing. In fact, if Downpour is as atmospheric as Alan Wake I’ll be a happy camper. Still no word on a release date other than a fairly open October 2011 release, but there’s still plenty of time left at E3 to announce when we’ll be able to get our hands on this game. Downpour will also support 3D, for those of you who are lucky enough to own a 3D capable TV. Head past the break for a substantial batch of screens.
