The game has 6 possible endings, but only 5 are available on the first playthrough. The ending obtained depends on 3 factors.

  1. One factor is the "moral score", increased or decreased depending on the moral choices made during gameplay, and how many monsters the player has killed. A positive score can be obtained when Murphy makes positive moral choices, and by sparing the lives of monsters. A negative score is accumulated when Murphy makes poor moral choices, and when he kills monsters, rather then incapacitating or ignoring them.

  2. The second factor is the decision regarding Anne's fate in the game's finale.

  3. The third consists of the player surviving the finale, since dying only rewards the player with the Reversal ending.

After the game's completion a new sidequest is added, Digging Up the Past, and completing this sidequest it rewards the player with the Surprise ending. Akin to Silent Hill 4: The Room, Downpour does not have a UFO Ending.

Endings

Ending A - Forgiveness: You'll obtain this ending by having good karma (choose to help when given the option) and sparing the character at the end.

Ending B - Truth and Justice: You'll receive this ending if you killed too many enemies, even if you had good karma otherwise by choosing to help the two other characters early on.

Ending C - Full Circle: Achieve this ending by having good karma (choose to help when given the option) but killing the character at the end.

Ending D - Execution: This ending is achieved by having bad karma (do not choose to help when given the option) and by killing the character at the end.

Ending E - Surprise: This ending is achieved by completing the Digging Up the Past side quest on your second play through.

Ending F - Reversal: Achieve this ending by dying at the end. Anna will wake up from a dream and be inside a cell, and Murphy will be a prison guard.
