The next game in Konami’s Silent Hill series is going to be a lot to do with water, that’s according to Game Informer whom have the first details on the game. The aptly titled Silent Hill: Downpour will have water coming from all over the place, so it’s obviously a major theme of the game, then.

The story sees you taking control of Murphy Pendleton, an escaped convict who is likely going to be taken to hell and back in the horrific events of a game. Well without this, it just wouldn’t be a Silent Hill game.

As for the game itself, new developer Vatra Games are promising a return to the roots of the series. Downpour will also feature sidequests, QTE’s in the boss fights, fiendish puzzles and a big playing map.

The game will be released on Xbox 360 and PS3, but Konami hasn’t announced anything any more specific as of yet. But I’ll certainly be looking forward to this as much as any other Silent Hill game.
