As horror fans, we’re all brimming with anticipation for the Silent Hill 2 remake. However, let’s shift our focus to another intriguing venture — the collaborative project from Behaviour Interactive, Bad Robot Games, Genvid, and DJ2 Entertainment: Silent Hill: Ascension.
Our wait for information is over as Genvid Entertainment and Konami Digital Entertainment have just released fresh details and a chilling trailer for this interactive streaming series, scheduled to launch later this year.
Silent Hill: Ascension thrusts us into the horrifying realities of multiple main characters located worldwide. Their lives become twisted nightmares as they’re besieged by monstrous beings from the Silent Hill universe. The insidious creatures lurk in the shadows, poised to engulf people, their offspring, and entire towns. Drawn into the gloom by recent murder mysteries and deeply buried guilt and fears, the stakes are unimaginably high.
An interesting facet of Silent Hill: Ascension is the power it grants its audience. The series’ conclusion isn’t pre-determined, not even by its creators. Instead, the fate of the characters lies in the hands of millions of viewers.
The series boasts an extensive cast of detailed new characters, as well as fresh monsters and locations within the Silent Hill universe. It leverages Genvid’s real-time interactive system, enabling a vast audience to guide characters’ survival and influence their destinies.
Jacob Navok, CEO of Genvid Entertainment, promises a captivating, immersive experience for audiences with Silent Hill: Ascension. Expect striking visuals, real-time community-driven events, and a deep exploration of the psychological horror that has endeared the Silent Hill series to fans worldwide.
“By participating in Silent Hill: Ascension,” he says, “you will leave your legacy in the canon of Silent Hill. We’re offering fans the unique chance to become part of the story themselves in collaboration with Konami Digital Entertainment, Bad Robot Games, and Behaviour Interactive.”
More details about Ascension are to be revealed in the coming months. To stay in the loop, check back to our iHorror games section here.

‘El Paso, Elsewhere’ Trailer Takes You to the Pit of Hell in Texas to Fight the Supernatural
Max Payne was one hell of a game. It was a singular experience, the noir, the slow-motion shootouts, the horror undertones. It was just a great game. Well, El Paso, Elsewhere is a spiritual successor for Max Payne and it’s a good one.
Strange Scaffold’s El Paso, Elsewhere incorporates the slow-motion shootouts, the painkillers, and the same overall look of the Max. However, in this game, you are fighting all-out werewolves, mummies, and vampires. In addition, you are looking for the love of your life in the form of a female vampire named Draculae.
The synopsis for El Paso, Elsewhere goes like this:
Haunted by his memories with the undead queen, the werewolves, mummies, and biblically accurate angels awaiting James are just one threat of many. Fight them off with a wealth of weapons, pills that keep the pain at bay, and badass bullet time that lets you pick and choose your shots or deftly dodge attacks while countering – all while our hero will confront his own memories of this bittersweet, painful relationship and the unfortunate turn of events that brought him to this pit of hell in Texas.
El Paso, Elsewhere is now available on Xbox, Playstation and Microsoft Windows.
Greg Nicotero’s Leatherface Mask and Saw Revealed in New ‘Texas Chainsaw Massacre’ Teaser
Gun Interactive’s The Texas Chainsaw Massacre has given us one heck of a game. The entire cat-and-mouse matches between the Family and the Victims has been a blast to navigate. Each character is fun to play as but it always comes back to Leatherface. Playing as him is always a blast. In our first bit of DLC make-up FX artist and filmmaker, Greg Nicotero gives us a new mask, a new saw, and a brand new kill. This new bit of DLC is coming in October and will cost $15.99.
The arrival of make-up designed by Nicotero is a cool one. The entire design is really cool. From his bolo bone tie to his mask designed with the mouth fixed to where Leatherface’s eye peers through.
Of course, the saw is very cool too, and has the very cool bonus feature of being named a Nicotero saw. Which somehow fits perfectly as the name of a chainsaw.
“What’s so rewarding about working alongside Greg is his wealth of knowledge, his experience with practical effects, makeup and the art of creature creation.” said Wes Keltner, CEO and President of Gun Interactive. “He’s touched so many horror franchises over the years, it just made sense to bring him on board. And when the two of us get together, it’s like kids in a candy store! We had a blast working on this,and bringing that vision to life is something both Gun and Sumo are very proud of.”
Greg Nicotero’s DLC arrives this October. The full Texas Chainsaw Massacre game is out now. What do you think of the new mask? Let us know in the comments section.
‘Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III’s’ Zombie Trailer Introduces an Open-World and Operators
This marks the very first time that Zombies come to the world of Modern Warfare. And it looks like they are going all out and adding an entirely new experience to the gameplay.
The new zombies-based adventure will take place in big wide-open massive worlds similar to Modern Warfare II’s DMZ mode. It will also feature operators similar to those in Warzone. These operators combined with an open-world mechanics are sure to bring an entirely new experience to the classic zombies mode that fans are used to.
Personally, I believe that this new update is exactly what the Zombies mode needed. It was due for something to mix it up and this is a very nice way to do it. DMZ mode was a lot of fun and I think that this will be the thing to shake up the world of zombies and get folks interested all over again.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III arrives November 10.
