The details have come in from Konami on the Xbox version of Silent Hill 2, and adopters of the Playstation 2 version have plenty to be upset about. The game is officially titled Silent Hill 2: Restless Dreams, and in addition to improved graphics over the PS2 version, the game will also feature a new mode of play.
When beginning a new game, you will be able to choose between two scenarios. The first one is called “Letter From Silent Heaven” and is essentially the PS2 version of the game. The second scenario is called “Born From A Wish” and has you playing as Maria, the strange woman James Sunderland (the game’s protagonist) met in the first Silent Hill. This new Xbox exclusive scenario features around four-to-six hours of gameplay, and fills in specific details of the story that remained unanswered in the main scenario.
Silent Hill 2: Restless Dreams is scheduled for release this December.
