Silent Hill: Book of Memories demo out tomorrow

Prepare yourselves for the RAAAAAGE

[Update: This is in Europe only. Apparently there’s no word on a US demo. Because Konami.]

If you’re curious as to what WayForward has done to “ruin” Silent Hill for everybody, you’ll be delighted to know that a Book of Memories demo is being made available tomorrow. The full game’s out on October 16, in case you’re wondering. Konami never bothered to announce it, so you might be unaware. 

The demo will feature two zones and is single-player only. It’ll take you up to the “Fire Boss,” which is a boss. Presumably one that’s made of fire, or uses fire in some way. It’s a Fire Boss … basically. 

A few weapons and enemies from later areas of the game are being included to give you a feel of the full product. Now let us all brace ourselves for the inevitable swathe of vicious complaints that this demo shall draw from Silent Hill‘s pack of increasingly insane fans. 

It’s going to be brutal.
