Silent Hill: Downpour's gameplay will include combat and puzzle-solving. The game will mostly use a third-person view, including fixed camera views. The player character will have access to a few firearms and different breakable melee weapons, but will only be able to carry a single melee weapon at once. Downpour will feature puzzle difficulty selections and side-quests which will change depending on the player's play style. Buildings featured in previous installments of the series, such as a hospital and a school, will be excluded and the element of water will be holding a prominent role, with torrential rain being featured.
Silent Hill: Downpour will follow Murphy Pendleton, a prisoner who is stranded in the town of Silent Hill after the prison transport vehicle he is being transported with careens off a road; Downpour's plot will be unrelated to previous installments in the series, focusing on Murphy rather than the series' mythos, and its events will take place in the southeastern region of Silent Hill, which has never been explored in previous games.
