Hideo Kojima, a very conversant Japanese video game creator, is well-known for his video game marketing tactics. During Sony’s Gamescom 2014 pre-show conference, the platform holder took the wraps off what looked liked a brand new interactive horror IP called P.T., from 7780s Studio. However, it was later discovered through the demo of the game that it was just a teaser (P.T stands for Playable Teaser) for an upcoming title, which is now known as Silent Hills, by Hideo Kojima and Guillermo del Toro. You can check out how real Silent Hills P.T. looks like while running on PlayStation 4 in the GIF image provided below.

It is still not crystal clear that Konami really planned to reveal a new title, that is now known as Silent Hills, when they announced P.T. during Sony’s Gamesom 2014 pre-show conference last week. It looks like the developer thought that fans won’t be able to break the code very soon by completing the demo of the game that was made available for PlayStation 4 console, but contrarily, fans didn’t take more than 24 hours to get to the end of the demo and unlock the proof that P.T. is short for “Playable Teaser”, and that it is actually an interactive intro to a new game, known as Silent Hills, in Konami’s famous survival horror video game series.

After going through P.T. demo, it is certain that it is a kind of interactive prelude to a game most certainly called Silent Hills. Details on the upcoming title are scarce, but we do know this that the game is currently being developed at Kojima Productions, and Guillermo Del Toro is lending a helping hand. As visible in the end of P.T. demo, Silent Hills feature Norman Reedus as lead protagonist and is powered by Kojima’s famous Fox Engine (the video game development engine that made Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes and The Phantom Pain possible).


The playable teaser for Silent Hills was claimed to be toned down graphically, yet still, it takes you through scenes that appear very close to real. Thanks to Reddit user Bakarie, we have a fine in-game Silent Hills scene in form of a GIF with brightness turned up a bit, and it amazingly looks like a real-life sequence.

Note that the GIF provided below has gone through a fair amount of compressions, and the quality is not the same as the original demo on the PlayStation 4 console, but still, this Silent Hills GIF looks way better and shows the true power of Fox Engine running on Sony’s latest PlayStation 4 console.
