The July issue of Official Xbox Magazine brings us even more details on the upcoming Silent Hill: Downpour! I don’t have the issue on hand but site affiliate Hell Descent compiled a handy list of all the cool new things we learn from the issue!
. Some enemies can not be killed, only evaded.
. The Shade is the name of the black fog monster. No indication if this is an enemy type or one entity.
. Boarded doors can be opened with an axe.
. Murphy has limited stamina and can not run infinitely.
. 15-20 sidequests are available to choose from. Unlockable items come from completing them.
. Red jacket guy seen on the bridge in both E3 trailers is an ex-tour guide of Devil’s Pit. His name is J.P.
. The 2010 E3 trailer showed what many believed to be a “little person”. He is in fact a child.
. A disembodied voice speaks to Murphy.
Some enemies can’t be killed…urg I know my heart rate won’t like that! I hated those ghosts from Silent Hill 4 for that very reason! The side quests are interesting I can’t wait to see what sort of things Murphy will have to go do. I like that Murphy has a limited stamina, makes things a bit more realistic and you will have to choose wisely when you want to run like mad man from monsters!
