The beloved Silent Hill franchise is being rebooted by game auteur Hideo Kojima in collaboration with noted film director Guillermo del Toro (Pacific Rim.)

The game was teased as simply "P.T." during today's Sony press conference at Gamescom, but was more fully revealed in a playable demo released to the PlayStation Store today.

There's a kick if you complete the demo, though, as seen in this Twitch stream recording (via Polygon) -- the game is really called Silent Hills. The game will feature The Walking Dead TV star Norman Reedus (pictured).

The game appears to be a reboot of the Silent Hill franchise, which first debuted on the original PlayStation in 1998. Series creator Akira Yamaoka left Konami for Grasshopper Manufacture in 2010. Ever since Silent Hill 4, the last game in the franchise developed at Konami's Japan HQ, a variety of Western studios have contributed games to the series.
