Silent Hill: The Short Message – Konami’s oft-leaked “contemporary psychological horror” spin on its long-dormant series – has finally been given its official unveiling, along with confirmation it’s free and out today on PlayStation 5.

The Short Message – which first surfaced in September 2022 via a South Korea ratings board listing – made its formal debut during tonight’s PlayStation State of Play showcase, with its announcement trailer revealing a first-person experience focusing on a young woman and featuring heavy interactions with her mobile phone.
