Hideo Kojima on first person view and open world

2014.08.16

WhatIfGaming editor was lucky to run into Kojima at Gamescom and ask him a couple of questions concerning new Silent Hill.

WhatIfGaming: I can't believe you're going to actually make it with Norman! I just have to ask with that aside, is the game going to be first person or was that entirely unrelated from the demo?

Hideo Kojima: Not sure yet. Development is cycling between either allowing players to choose to play the whole game in first person or third person, or keeping it fixed third person and having some areas be first person only. Either way we want to do something with first person. The game will not be out more than likely until 2016, lots of time left.

WhatIfGaming: Will the title be open-world or will it be linear?

Hideo Kojima: All I can say is Fox Engine is meant for open world. I cannot discuss more on the game design itself in detail yet.

Silent Hills by Hideo Kojima

2014.08.12

It has been finally announced! Today before Gamescom, Sony has released a short video presenting the world's first interactive teaser of a mysterious project P.T. by a (likely fictitious) developer 7780s Studio. Those, who have downloaded and finished the demo, were surprised to see the announcement of a new game called Silent Hills developed by Metal Gear creator Hideo Kojima and director Guillermo del Toro starring The Walking Dead's Norman Reedus.

The playable teaser for PS4 is available now in PSN.

Update: Later Kojima-san revealed that P.T. in fact means "Playable Teaser". He also said that 7780s is a hint to "Silent Hills". Japanese prefecture Shizuoka can be literally translated as "Silent Hill" ("silent" is "shizuka" and "hill" is "oka"). The area of the prefecture is 7780 km².
