In an interview with Xbox 360 Magazine Italy (fan translated by Hell Descent and verified by Joystiq), when asked if the upcoming Silent Hill: Downpour will have a multiplayer mode, Vatra Games' Radek Marek surprisingly didn't get up and walk out, laughing. Instead, the art director replied, "At the moment there will be no multiplayer modes in Silent Hill: Downpour, but Konami are investigating a separate chapter devoted entirely to the Multiplayer." A separate chapter? Could you tell us more, Mr. Marek? "We do not know the details but it should be an XBLA title that most players have to survive in the town of Silent Hill."

So, to recap: This year's retail-bound Silent Hill: Downpour won't have a multiplayer mode but publisher Konami is "investigating" an XBLA experiment, if you will. Konami's last XBLA multiplayer experiment was last summer's unremarkable Castlevania: Harmony of Despair. Let's hope the moody isolation of Silent Hill better lends itself to a multiplayer installment.

Sounds like an okay idea. Instead of plunging an untested playstyle directly into a game, you make an arcade game to function like a survey of sorts.

Sounds different. I like the idea.

sounds good, perhaps more game developers should do something like this rather than adding a tacked-on multiplayer that nobody wants

if this is true it would be a day 1 buy for me

Multiplayer Sounds like an interesting idea but could end up removing the fear

Thank God. I'd rather have Silent Hill kept as Single Player. I just won't get the arcade game, unless of course they make the MP work.

I completely agree
