News | Screenshots of Metal Gear Solid Delta: Snake Eater shown

Konami has released six screenshots of the upcoming Metal Gear Solid Delta: Snake Eater.

The screenshots mainly show the environment of the game. The “faithful remake” of Metal Gear Solid 3 was announced yesterday at the PlayStation Showcase for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X and S, and PC. A release date is not yet known. “A new generation of players and loyal fans can experience the origin story of the famous Big Boss and learn how his legend was formed.”

It has now also been announced via the Konami website that the original voice actors will return to the game. It is unclear whether they will re-record the game, or whether the original audio files will be used.

Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater is set in 1964, long before the other main installments in the Metal Gear series. In the game, players play as a FOX agent named Naked Snake to rescue Russian rocket scientist Nikolai Stephanovich Sokolov and sabotage a superweapon. Where other Metal Gear games mainly explore urban and industrial areas, in Snake Eater players enter a jungle. In addition to stealth, action and narrative elements, the game also contains survival elements. For example, animals can be hunted and players have to heal their wounds and fractures. A remake of Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater has been rumored for quite some time now.


News | Konami Announces Multiple Silent Hill Games and New Movie

During a livestream last night, Konami announced multiple Silent Hill games, as well as a new movie based on the horror franchise.

For example, a remake of Silent Hill 2, one of the most acclaimed parts of the series, is being worked on. The game is to be released on PlayStation 5 and PC. A release date is unknown. The remake is being developed by the Polish studio Bloober Team, known for games like The Medium and Blair Witch, but Art director Masahiro Ito and composer Akira Yamaoka are helping.

More details about the game will be revealed on PlayStation Blog. For example, the remake runs on Unreal Engine 5 and uses Lumen and Nanite technologies. The battle system will be overhauled and cutscenes will be recreated with new motion capture.

According to Bloober Team, the remake should contain everything that makes the original version so good, but add new elements to make the game world even more exciting.

The company does this during a digital event that will be broadcast at 23:00 Dutch time. A teaser website has also been placed online with a timer that expires, from which the live stream can soon be seen.

Details about what exactly will be shown are not yet available, but actor Elijah Wood – known for the The Lord of The Rings film trilogy – has retweeted Konami’s announcement. It is therefore likely that Wood will appear in a future Silent Hill game or movie.
