The live horror experience will be available for PC via desktop browser, iOS via App Store, and Android via Google Play starting at at 6:00 p.m. PT / 9:00 p.m. ET. Weekly packaged episodes of the audience-influenced storylines will be available via the Sony Pictures Core app for PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4, Bravia Core app for Bravia TVs, and Bravia Core for Xperia app on select Xperia smartphones.
Get the details below.
Ahead of the premiere, Genvid will stream a pre-show event, hosted by Greg Miller and Kinda Funny where fans of Silent Hill can gather together, get ready for the upcoming series and chat with series creators. The Premiere Pre-Show starts at 4:30 p.m. PT / 7:30 p.m. ET and is available in the Silent Hill: Ascension app, at Ascension.com, as well as Kinda Funny’s YouTube and Twitch channels.
Available now, fans can install Silent Hill: Ascension and sign-up for a free account on their mobile device or at Ascension.com on a desktop computer. While the series itself will not begin until 6:00 p.m. PT / 9:00 p.m. ET, the first decision is already available and will impact the outcome of the first scenes in the live stream, including the ultimate fate of one of our characters, Rachel Hernandez.
Additionally, before the live action starts, fans can watch Silent Hill: Ascension – The Essentials to learn how this one-of-a-kind series works. This video will explain how audiences make daily decisions and impact the story through puzzles and other elements. It also highlights that choices are available at a minimum of 24 hours, so every fan anywhere in the world can participate each day without needing to be there live.
The First Decision
The first decision: Silent Hill: Ascension follows the complex lives of two families in peril, including the aforementioned Rachel Hernandez—a rising mystic acolyte, mother and community leader who will perform a ritual on new cult member, Joy Cirelli, who seeks spiritual healing. When things go horrifically wrong… Should Rachel tell Joy to a) Finish the oath b) Run! or c) Plead for mercy? You—-the whole audience—decide! Come back every day to participate in more compelling decisions, which will ultimately determine which of these characters survive to the end of the story.
After the Premiere
Following the premiere, fans can return to the mobile streaming app or Ascension.com anytime to watch the latest scenes on-demand, solve puzzles, and participate in story decisions (almost all decisions are open for 24 hours or more so a worldwide audience can participate). Or join live at 6:00 p.m. PT / 9:00 p.m. ET daily as new scenes unfold and participate in interactive adventure sequences with the rest of the audience that impact the long-term fate of lead characters.
While Silent Hill: Ascension is a free experience, fans can customize how they appear to the community in chat, leaderboards and special cameos inside the show itself. There will be a cameo contest daily inside the app where winners will have characters they make appear inside cinematic sequences or interactive action scenes.
As a special, limited time offer for early fans, Genvid is making available a Silent Hill: Ascension Founder’s Pack. The Founder’s Pack is available until November 14 and includes exclusive profile customizations such as a Founder’s icon, Founder’s frame, and exclusive themed frame, emoji, and sticker.
