Patches Incoming For 'Silent Hill HD Collection,' 'Downpour'

Konami promises fixes for widely-reported issues with the recently released HD remake and sequel.

I wasn't even aware there was an autosave issue with Silent Hill Downpour but it's among the list of fixes that Konami is targeting in an upcoming update to survival horror game. While bugs weren't the only problems affecting Downpour, some additional polish wouldn't hurt the overall experience.

Similarly, the HD Collection, which has been widely cited for looking rougher in terms of lighting effects, fog, etc. is also getting a pass for bugs.

Here's the official text from the press release:

Understanding the issues some users are experiencing, development teams are currently creating online patches for both games, which will fix the frame rate issues, the audio-synching in Silent Hill HD Collection, and the Auto-Save issues in Silent Hill Downpour. Players have voiced their concerns, and solutions to these issues will be fixed and launched in the coming weeks.

Konami hasn't made an official date available for the patches, and if they're going through certification for the 360 and PS3, it's anyone's guess when they'll be available. We've reached out to Konami in the hopes of getting a full list of fixes that are planned with the title updates.
