A New Silent Hill: Ascension Trailer Has Dropped Alongside More Details On The Interactive Series

Link's not the only one ascending.

Genvid Technologies and Konami have just surprise-dropped a new trailer for Silent Hill: Ascension, the upcoming interactive experience that was announced late last year with involvement from JJ Abrams’ Bad Robot and Behavior Interactive.

Alongside the one-and-a-half minute trailer, Genvid also posted a lengthy new update on what fans can expect from the streaming series, which is set to launch later this year. The experience will be one shared by “millions” with live events driving by the entire viewing community that will have a lasting impact on how everything unfolds. It all sounds rather bold and potentially quite groundbreaking if it pans out in the way that is being described.

According to the post, Ascension will follow multiple protagonists from different locations around the globe, all haunted by new Silent Hill monsters. Audiences will be able to determine the course of events as they unfold, resulting in these characters either surviving or not – kind of like a Supermassive game but on a much larger scale.

“Silent Hill: Ascension will captivate audiences with its immersive experience, spotlighting stunning visuals and live community-driven moments, all while exploring the psychological horror that has made the Silent Hill series so beloved by fans worldwide. For the first time in the Silent Hill history, the collective audience will be able to influence the story, determining crucial outcomes for the complex, evolving characters in this series,” said Jacob Navok, CEO of Genvid Entertainment in the post.

We are pleased to tell a new interactive story, in never-before-explored locations, alongside new characters that will be introduced to fans of the Silent Hill universe. It is you who will decide the fate of multiple main characters, which will unfold simultaneously around the globe.”
