After watching the trailer I noticed something and have some questions.
About halfway through the trailer the main character comes to the road that is broken and there is a truck perched on the edge. It looks to me like a very old model truck.

Does anyone know what type of truck that is and when it was made?

Could that shed light on the time period that the "other Silent Hill" is stuck in?

It seems to me that the Silent Hill portrayed is very old and run down looking, maybe more so than in the other games. Has a truck like that appeared in any other Silent Hill games?

I apologize if these are stupid questions. >_>

that was the only thing that bothered me

it reminded me of the old 1950's cars in Silent Hill in Homecoming that were there for no reason whatsoever

The truck didn't look more than a couple decades old, if that. Plenty of people have to keep their junkers around. Maybe the people of Silent Hill can't afford new cars?

But yeah, it doesn't stick out as weird to me.

Its definitely a 50's early 60's truck. The Full Moon hubcaps pretty much were the fancy options on many vehicles in the late 50's early 60's.

If it attests to the time period? I doubt it. The prisoner transport looked fairly recent. There have been old vehicles littering SH since the first game.

Doubtful; that prison has been closed for like, ever, hasn't it?

Though I have doubt our prisoner will *end up* there; I don't think its the initial destination.

The hubcaps and enclosed wheel-wells convinced me too. I do agree that it's presence is hardly indicative of the game's setting but it's fairly easy to feel like it's some sort of clue given how much it sticks out.

It's a 1948 Ford Pickup.

Also, you notice the WELCOME TO SILENT HILL sign with a much more modern appearance late in the trailer, and the impression I get is that the Otherworld of this game may be of a town abandoned for half a century.

Good find. It's interesting that they chose a real life car as opposed to just some generic one, especially considering that I doubt that this model was available in Czechoslovakia. I'm starting to think that this truck is relevant.

That... makes a lot of sense, and would be brilliant. MAKE IT HAPPEN.

Maybe Silent Hill will be as a Flying Dutchman. It will travel back and forht in time and space, so we will be fucking confused what is exactly going on. Oh, I love my imagination...

Maybe Murphy has been to Silent Hill before?

This is what I was curious about. :P
I am well aware that the normal Silent Hill is modern, but I think that the Otherworld is older.

Now the next thing to ask is, is the Otherworld old because of just the town itself, or does our main character have a past that imprints on it?

If the otherworld didn't exist til the whole Alessa ordeal, and silent hill 1 happens in the 60's, then the otherworld could be stuck in the time it was created.

just a thought.

Even the pistol seemed to look like a colt M1911 not like the other silent hills that typically used what looks like a M9 beretta.
