October 2, 2020 Silent Hill 4 has launched on GOG’s storefront.
Well, there you go. The fourth game in the Silent Hills series is now available on GOG. We had some idea Silent Hill 4: The Room might be the next game in Konami’s back catalogue to get a re-release on PC. An age rating for the old horror game popped up on PEGI’s website, marking it for a PC release and giving it an 18 age rating.
Silent Hill 4’s re-release follows on the heels of Metal Gear, Metal Gear Solid, and Metal Gear Solid 2: Substance coming to GOG’s storefront just recently. We caught wind of that early through ratings by the Taiwanese board, and those games were eventually joined by Konami Collector’s Series: Castlevania and Contra, which includes Castlevania, Castlevania II: Simon’s Quest, Castlevania III: Dracula’s Curse, Contra, and Super C.
As was the case with Metal Gear, Silent Hill 4 did receive a PC port way back in 2004, but it’s not been easy to track down since. As such, a digital release makes sense. If you missed Silent Hill 4, it was notable for blending stretches of traditional third-person survival horror with other sections where you would be trapped in an apartment while in the first-person view.
It was also the last Silent Hill game in the series to be developed by the original developer, Team Silent.
