South Korea’s Game Rating and Administration Committee (GRAC) has rated Silent Hill 2 as being inappropriate for youth, indicating that a release date announcement of the title could be around the corner.

According to the description on the GRAC website, Silent Hill 2 is a “horror adventure game about a man who meets a woman resembling his dead wife in a town he remembers.” That definitely sounds like the plot we know from the original, which involves a man named James Sunderland returning to a town called Silent Hill after receiving a letter from his dead wife.

The game contains “excessive violence” and “excessive gore” from attacks and being attacked. “Depictions of dismemberment, including creatures being torn apart,” are featured as well.

The Silent Hill 2 Remake has been rated in South Korea.

As you’d expect, Silent Hill 2 contains “excessive expressions of disgust and horror.” There are creatures with “bizarrely configured limbs,” “eerie backgrounds,” and “bizarre sounds.”

The rating application for Silent Hill 2 was filed on February 29, 2024, and has been granted on March 7, 2024.

Fans of the horror game series have been waiting for news around the remake developed by Bloober Team, which was initially announced in 2022, for a while now. The original Silent Hill 2 was released in September 2001, becoming especially popular in North America. Since the original game is considered to be one of the best horror games ever made, the remake has massive shoes to fill.

Aside from Bloober Team, which is new to the series, some veterans of the original development team are reprising their production roles, such as Masahiro Ito and Akira Yamaoka.

Silent Hill 2 was already featured in a trailer Sony made to highlight upcoming PS5 games for 2024 earlier this year. In addition to PS5, the game is expected to come to PC.

In the meantime, the Silent Hill 2 Enhanced Edition is the best way to play the title.
