Silent Hill 2 Remake Revealed: Release Date, Requirements and Trailer

For a very long time, the release of Silent Hill 2 was just speculation. But no more. It has been recently confirmed by the tech giant KONAMI that Silent Hill 2 along with many new Silent Hill projects are yet to come. This may come as one of the biggest announcements ever to the fans of Silent Hill 2.

Konami revealed the release of Silent Hill 2 for PS5 and PC during Wednesday’s Silent Hill Transmission Livestream. Here’s all you need to know about the horror game.

Silent Hill 2: The First Trailer

The first trailer for the remake of Silent Hill 2 displayed stunning visuals, new voice acting, and original music, suggesting that the game had been recreated from the scratch. The new camera angle in the remake will be an over-the-shoulder one. Both Masahiro Ito, the original game’s artist, and Akira Yamaoka, who composed the music, are working on the remake together.

Minimum System Requirements to Play Silent Hill 2

The system requirements for the PC version of Silent Hill 2 may be seen on the game’s Steam page. Though some people may find it controversial, for now, that’s only what we have.

Minimum Requirements

In order to run the game at minimum requirements, here’s what you need to have on your PC.

  • Requires a 64-bit processor and operating system
  • OS: Windows 10 x64
  • Processor: Intel Core i5-8400 | AMD Ryzen 3 3300X
  • Memory: 12 GB RAM
  • Graphics: AMD Radeon RX 5700 / NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080
  • DirectX: Version 12
  • Storage: 50 GB available space
  • Sound Card: Windows Compatible Audio Device.

These minimum requirements suggest that the game doesn’t require that much processing power to run.

Recommended Requirements

On the other hand, if you want to play the game with high graphics, then these are the recommended requirements that your PC must have.

  • Requires a 64-bit processor and operating system
  • OS: Windows 11 x64
  • Processor: Intel Core i7-8700K | AMD Ryzen 5 3600X
  • Memory: 16 GB RAM
  • Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce 2080RTX or AMD Radeon 6800XT
  • DirectX: Version 12
  • Storage: 50 GB available space
  • Sound Card: Windows Compatible Audio Device.

Since the game suggests a windows 11 operating system, many people may have an issue because not all people have upgraded to windows 11.

Silent Hill 2 Release Date

Many people are wondering when is the game releasing. For now, there’s nothing said or discussed the release date of Silent Hill 2 in the live stream. Even there’s no time window under which the game will be released. So, we have to wait to get the exact date of the release of Silent Hill 2.

Supported Platforms for Silent Hill 2

According to the creators, the game, at the launch will only support two devices i.e. PS5 and PC. These are the only supported platforms for the game as of now. So, at the launch, the game will not be available for even Xbox.

But, this doesn’t mean that the game will not be available for the Xbox later on. Surely it will. For now, there’s just console exclusivity on PlayStation. The game will be released on Xbox after 12 months. But for now, it is available for PS5 and PC only.

These are the only things about Silent Hill that we know as of now. Stay tuned to get updated about Silent Hill 2.
