Silent Hill 2 Remake Release Date and Gameplay Showcased

In Short
  • The Silent Hill 2 remake will launch on October 8, 2024, for PS5 and PC.
  • Pre-orders are live, allowing players to choose between standard and deluxe editions.
  • The new gameplay showcases the Brookhaven Hospital, which is modernized and the first combat encounter in-game.

After years of stalling and confirmation in development, Silent Hill 2 is finally launching later this year. The remake of the cult-classic psychological survival horror plans to revitalize a generational game. And it seems fans of Silent Hill have something to look forward to this year.

The State of Play confirmed the launch date and showed us the first modernized encounter between James Sunderland and Angela. As announced in the PlayStation State of Play event and Silent Hill Transmission event, Silent Hill 2 will launch on October 8, 2024, for PC and PS5.

Over at the Silent Hill Transmission stream, we got an in-depth look at the gameplay through two major sections of the game – the beginning hours and Brookhaven Hospital.

We first glimpse the beginning hours, where we can already see the combat and gameplay. The section where James picks up the radio has been overhauled, with James now sliding through a broken shed to enter a room and pick up the radio. Earlier, this section was much smaller and in an open area, commencing the combat with the monster.

We also got a complete, in-depth look at the Brookhaven Hospital section. The needle and hair puzzle at Brookhaven Hospital has also been faithfully recreated, with the video ending right before James fights the Flesh Lips. And yes, we also get a brief look at the new Flesh Lips design.

Overall, the game takes a Resident Evil approach, with levels overhauled to fit the remake moniker. However, it tries to keep the essence of the old game intact.
