Dark Deception

Dark Deception: Monsters and Mortals has a piece of great news for the classic horror Silent Hill franchise fans.

Silent Hill fans have been living under the reality where the possibility of a sequel in the series is very dull. This news about Silent Hill may also disappoint a few of them as this doesn’t remotely come close to a new game or even a remastered one. This is about a new Silent Hill DLC that is to be added to a game, that many of you may be familiar of, Dark Deception: Monsters and Mortals.

About Dark Deception: Monsters and Mortals

Dark Deception: Monsters and Mortals is an indie multiplayer horror party game that has multiple game modes. In this game features a realm, where players take the role of either monsters or mortals from the Dark deception or some other monstrous universe. The game is both developed and published by Glowstick Entertainment and is based on the original Dark Deception game-verse. There are multiple modes, as mentioned earlier, with different objectives. These include modes like:

Maze escape: It is a 3v1 mode where three mortals take up the duty of collecting the required amount of shards to summon a portal of escape, all while a monstrous creature is hunting them down.

Shard Mayhem: This is similar to the prior mode but the difference here is that everyone is in for themselves, it is also a four-player mode where players play in a 1v1v1v1. All of them are monsters and not mortals and the first to collect the most amount of shards within the time limit wins. Players can kill and take shards from one another.

Our Thoughts

Silent Hill has been on the ‘silent’ side lately and there is not much of any solid information about a new original game. We have previously talked about Silent Hill’s original creator is working on a new horror game, which is not a sequel to Silent Hill. Dark Deception: Monsters and Mortal is a great party game and it is nice to see such classic action being included to it. But even then, it would be nice to have an original new Silent Hill game in the series to please the fans and the players and to showcase what an actual horror game should feel like.
