Silent Hill: Downpour is a 2012 survival horror game developed by Vatra Games and published by Konami Digital Entertainment. The eighth installment in the Silent Hill video game series, Downpour was released in March 2012. Set in the series’ eponymous fictitious American town, Silent Hill: Downpour centers on Murphy Pendleton, a prisoner who enters the town, periodically entering the otherworld, and unlocks personal repressed memories. The game uses a third-person view and can be played in 3D.

Silent Hill: Downpour received mixed reviews from gaming critics, who praised its atmosphere, story, and return to the series’ survival horror and exploration roots after the action-heavy linearity of Silent Hill: Homecoming, but criticized its monster design, combat, and technical performance. A patch since release has fixed many of the technical issues.

Silent Hill: Downpour is a survival horror game played from the over-the-shoulder, third-person perspective, in which the player controls Murphy Pendleton, an escaped convict, as he navigates the titular supernatural town. While the extent to which the game is an open-world environment is debated, Downpour allows for more environmental exploration than previous installments in the series. While Murphy explores the town on foot, he can use the abandoned subway tunnels as a shortcut to various parts of the town. At times, Murphy will need to directly interact with the environment to progress, pulling down fire escapes with hooks or destroying boarded-up doors, for example. Parts of his backstory can be learned from in-game notes and flashbacks; secret messages can be uncovered through the use of a UV flashlight, while clues and maps are stored in his journal to access freely. The player also can shape Murphy’s character through several moral choices presented throughout the game, by allowing him to either act on or refuse opportunities to save non-player characters.
