Today was the big reveal: Bethesda is going to be publishing The Evil Within, a new surivival-horror game from Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikami and his studio Tango Gameworks. The game was unveiled in collaboration with IGN, and it’ll come out in 2014 for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC, and next-gen consoles.
Said Mikami about the forthcoming game:
“We’re incredibly proud to announce The Evil Within. My team and I are committed to creating an exciting new franchise, providing fans the perfect blend of horror and action.”
The trailer is on the IGN page, and is made up entirely of live-action sequences that are really creepy—and otherwise tell you nothing about what the hell the game is about. There’s a lady who’s all bloody and has four arms, and a guy with a box on his head, and inside the box are tentacles, and a man making barbed wire. Yup, this is a survival horror game. More details are scheduled to be revealed through IGN on Monday, so if you’re curious, keep your eyes peeled then.
Prior to the reveal, the project was known as Zwei, and in the week leading up to the unveiling, Bethesda had posted short clips that hinted at this trailer. They still don’t make a lick of sense, but at the very least, we can tell what they’re from. Now that we know a little more about it, what do you think of The Evil Within? What do you hope for? First-person? Third-person? Would you have rather had Fallout 4?
