Players can capture and recruit characters they encounter and assign them to different units that will perform different functions, such as healing teammates, gathering intelligence and creating new items. Players can also recruit rare and unique characters with special abilities throughout the game. Each character is rated on a series of more than ten attributes, giving players incredible variety in building the ideal squad and creating different teams that are best suited to different combat situations.

The game’s narrative reveals the origins that transformed the titular Silent Hill from a sleepy town to a hellish stronghold of terror and introduces several new characters to the franchise.
