NEW STORY STREAMING WEEKDAYS

SILENT HILL: Ascension features new story weekdays to watch, terrifying monsters, and deepening mysteries.

INTERACTIVE HORROR TELEVISION

Make crucial decisions that will change the way the story unfolds. New scenes weekdays at 9pm ET / 6pm PT. Can't make it live? It's easy to jump in and participate on-demand anytime. Story Decisions are active for 24 hours or longer.

A FRESH, MIND-BENDING SILENT HILL STORY FEATURING NEW MONSTERS

The Hernandez family plummets into chaos as another death shakes their decimated rust-belt town in Pennsylvania. In a dying fishing village in Norway, the uneasy peace of the Johansen family is upended when their matriarch, Ingrid, dies under suspicious circumstances. Survival depends on them overcoming their darkest impulses and the machinations of a cult, as they discover the horror that connects them.

Will they face redemption, suffering or damnation? YOU decide.

YOUR DECISIONS MAKE HISTORY

Participate in new, critical Decisions that will decide the fates of the characters and influence the way the story unfolds. Then watch these community-driven outcomes in weekly TV episodes in the streaming app.

Once a Decision is made by the community, it is canon. There’s no reset button.

Earn and use Influence Points (“IP”) to participate in Decisions that influence the narrative. The more IP you have, the more you can shape the Decisions you care about.

CHAT LIVE WITH THE COMMUNITY & JOIN WEEKDAY WATCH PARTIES

In our live chat you can interact with the community, show off the best stickers and emojis in your collection and initiate rallies to get the community behind Decisions you care about.

During weekday watch parties you’ll see new scenes plus the outcome of the community's Decisions. Every live stream concludes with a sequence where you and the entire community must help a main character endure through real danger. You won't want to miss these live moments because if a character fails enough in them, they may not survive future encounters leading to their death in the story.

Really wanted to love this game!

I want to start by saying the concept of this game is really good but felt like it was very rushed. I also felt like the long break kind of killed the audience’s interest and felt like we haven’t seen anything suspenseful like previous Silent Hill games and movies have.
It would have also been awesome if they included original concepts like pyramid head and nurses. I was really hoping to see more of the actual town of Silent Hill and the horrors inside it.
Its hard to believe that the people creating this are diehard fans because the community has been begging for a classic style Silent Hill for a long time.
However my main complaint and why i rated this two stars was the daily games. The tutorials are vague and I could not find any additional information online on how to play the new games added which majorly affected my interest sense this is how to collect IP and raise characters hope.
I also was frustrated how all games added new levels daily for pass holders which resulted in having to play for hours daily just to catch up as a free player.
My game often crashes when i try to vote and have missed out on livestreams because of glitching.
Please listen to what the community is saying because this has the potential to be a really kickass app!

No. Just No.

I was mildly optimistic/interested in this when announced but this has to be maybe the most soulless Silent Hill project aside from the pachinko games. The idea of a community creating a canon Silent Hill story sounds great but the execution ranges from disappointing to terrible. The app interface is pretty cluttered and ugly. It really clashes with the self serious tone of the story when you have a chat that allows you to throw goofy stickers out at as scenes unfold. The animation of characters, specifically the facial animation, is incredibly stiff and everyone has a dead eyed Polar Express look. The writing is littered with clunky exposition and unnatural conversations. Voice acting ranges from robotic to flat out silly. I was often reminded of the worst cutscenes from Heavy Rain while watching. And while the developer has constantly argued this experience is not pay to win, you can literally buy “influence points” to have a larger effect on the story. The monetization is disgustingly greedy and reeks of a corporate cash grab mindset way more scary than anything happening in this series. Avoid it at all costs and wait for the other, far more promising projects. Or better yet, play some of the original games for some of the best thematically rich stories in gaming.

Fans of SH will be disappointed

Silent Hill is my favorite series of all time. What sets SH apart from other series is the emphasis on atmosphere and creating a haunting horror game that’s a manifestation of the character’s psyches. The town ( and other places impacted) are a sort of interim/liminal space that’s both enticing and haunting, and often terrifying. I admire that the developers of Ascension wanted to make something different and that’s interactive, although I ( a die hard fan) guessed early on that it probably wouldn’t be a good fit for the series. Nonetheless, I wanted to give it a go to see if my thoughts on it being bad ( the trailer gave me that impression, particularly the voice overs). I couldn’t get through the first chapter. The main issue for me was the acting, but overall, it just felt off. Developers that are lucky enough to make a game that’s part of the SH franchise need to learn what they seem to reject: we fans want what the original games had. We don’t want a Westernized version. Please take a look at how RE went downhill after 4 but learned their lesson and came back with incredible games like 7 and 8.
