No doubt Shinji Mikami’s The Evil Within is going to be something very special. You can’t help but get the feeling this could be the next Resident Evil 4. With what looks to be great gameplay mechanics and possibly containing some of the the most unsettling environments you’ll ever play in, it’s sure to be a hit this Fall.
Today Bethesda released a new gameplay trailer showcasing just exactly how and even worse, whom you’ll be fighting in your constant struggle to survive. With just a week to go until release, the trailer makes me both excited and upset for what I’ll be up against.
“Developed by Shinji Mikami and the talented team at Tango Gameworks, The Evil Within embodies the meaning of pure survival horror. Highly-crafted environments, horrifying anxiety, and an intricate story are combined to create an immersive world that will bring you to the height of tension. With limited resources at your disposal, you’ll fight for survival and experience profound fear in this perfect blend of horror and action.
While investigating the scene of a gruesome mass murder, Detective Sebastian Castellanos and his partners encounter a mysterious and powerful force. After seeing the slaughter of fellow officers, Sebastian is ambushed and knocked unconscious. When he awakens, he finds himself in a deranged world where hideous creatures wander among the dead. Facing unimaginable terror, and fighting for survival, Sebastian embarks on a frightening journey to unravel what’s behind this evil force.
The Evil Within releases on Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PC on Tuesday, October 14th in North America and Europe.”
