Silent Hill: The Short Message Exceeds 2 Million Downloads


Konami celebrates that its small horror game, which serves as an appetizer before Silent Hill 2 Remake, has reached an important download figure on the PS Store.

Little by little, the Silent Hill horror saga is gaining ground, recovering the territory it lost after a decade of absence. So far, two of the six announced projects for the Konami horror series have been released.

On one hand, Silent Hill: Ascension, an interactive series by Genvid Entertainment, has received mixed reviews, which are gradually turning negative.

On the other side of the balance is Silent Hill: The Short Message, a free small game exclusive to PlayStation 5 (temporarily), which has been available for download on the PS Store since January 31.

What remains? Silent Hill 2 Remake, which has no release date, but should arrive on PS5 and PC by 2024, as well as Silent Hill F, Silent Hill: Townfall, and the movie Return to Silent Hill.

Konami has announced that The Short Message has reached a new milestone, after surpassing the one million download mark in its first week.

The new Silent Hill works

While not a full game, all PlayStation 5 users can download this small adventure for free, which immerses us in a remarkable experience of suspense and exploration.

Silent Hill: The Short Message tells the story of Anita, a young woman who investigates the disappearance of her friend Maya in a fog-covered German town.

To this day, this title available on the PS Store has surpassed the two million download mark, which is not bad at all.

Konami has celebrated this figure on their official Twitter account, thanking fans for their support in what is a satisfactory return of the horror saga born in 1999.

Now, the question is: Will the remaining three games live up to their expectations? Fans of Silent Hill are confident, although it’s true that the latest gameplay of Silent Hill 2 shown in the State of Play raised some doubts.

In any case, there would still be the Silent Hill F prequel set in the 1960s, and Silent Hill: Townfall, developed by No Code and sponsored by Annapurna.

What do you think of Silent Hill: The Short Message? If you haven’t tried it yet, remember that it’s available for free on the PlayStation Store for PS5. It will be exclusive to the Sony console for at least 1 year.
