Silent Hills P.T. on PS4

Sony revealed a new horror game P.T. at Gamescom last month and then the demo popped up on PlayStation Network for PS4 owners almost immediately afterward. The mystery didn’t last long, and gamers solved the puzzles within P.T. in a few hours which unveils the trailer for Silent Hills, a new entry in the Silent Hill franchise. I played P.T. over the weekend to see if it really is as scary as everyone is saying.

Yes. P.T. is absolutely terrifying. I have not been genuinely scared by a game since O.G. Resident Evil on PS1. This game completely surpases Resident Evil’s dogs jumping out of that freaking window on every level. The setting is ridiculously creepy, taking place in basically one hallway. The soundtrack is eerie, and you will look at your dark hallway at night differently after spending time with P.T.

P.T. starts with you waking up in a room with a door directly in front of you. The controls are simple; you walk with the left stick, control the camera with the right stick, and are able to zoom in with R3 (pressing in the right stick). You walk through the door and are presented with the hallway that you will get to know intimately, and a radio playing a broadcast about a recent grisly murder. All that is left to do is wander the hall aimlessly.

After examining the hallway, there is a door at the bottom of some steps at the end. Once you walk through this door you end up back in the same hallway, but it’s creepier and it keeps getting even more creepy with each loop. P.T. psychologically torments you by making dread walking through that door again.

I don’t want to spoil the scares for the brave nerds out there, so I won’t go into more detail of the actual puzzles, but I do have to talk about Silent Hills. So who is involved in Silent Hills; Hideo Kojima, Guillermo Del Toro, and Norman Reedus. Yes, Hideo Kojima the Metal Gear Solid guy, Guillermo Del Toro who has done Pan’s Labyrinth, Pacific Rim, and television show The Strain, and Norman Reedus from The Walking Dead and Boondock Saints. Whoa is right.

If P.T. is any indication of how great Silent Hills could be, we are in for a treat. I embedded the trailer for Silent Hills below for any nerds that either don’t own a PS4 or are too afraid to play P.T. If you do want to play P.T. and unlock the trailer yourself, P.T. is available on PS4 for free on the PlayStation Network.
