Bethesda’s New Game is “The Evil Within”

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?

  1. Would have soo preferred fallout 4 with the creation engine…. Maybe wait for an e3 announcement?? I really hope they do it, I don’t think that they have confirmed it ether…

  2. Wouldn’t have minded Fallout 4, but new IP’s are never a bad thing.

  3. It’d be nice to see it come with both perspectives, though if I had to choose for a horror game I’d say it’d have to be first person. A horror game with Bethesda involved should be interesting, and honestly Skyrim isn’t that old so i’m not going to worry about Fallout 4 just yet.

  4. Like most, I was hoping for Fallout 4, but never mind.

    I already know I won’t be that interested in this though, I don’t like horror things at all. The most horror like game I can play is Bioshock.

  5. I’m glad they’re doing something new, sure, Fallout 4 would have been orgasmic, but this could be pretty amazing too. I’m excited :D

  6. Urgh, more zombie stuff. I’m so sick of zombies already

  7. Fallout 4 is still a possibility. Bethesda is publishing this, not developing it.

  8. Wow… Them next gen graphics are, like, so real…

  9. I’ve been waiting and waiting for fallout 4. Just a little disappointed.

  10. Just to provide some clarification, this announcement does not indicate that Bethesda Game Studios is not working on Fallout 4 (or whatever game is up their sleeve). This game, Evil Within, is being published by Bethesda Softworks (the studio’s publishing division), and is being developed by Tango Gameworks under the direction of Shinji Mikami.

    Bethesda Game Studios (Skyrim, Oblivion, Fallout 3) are currently digging their heels in on their current project, which I imagine will be revealed at E3 or potentially QuakeCon.

    But still… fingers crossed for Fallout 4, yo.

  11. I hope this turns out in a really nice and realistic horror survival, then I will like it for sure, and its zombies…everybody loves to shoot zombies these days haha. But lets all pray Fallout 4 will come at E3..dam im excited about that game! (Its gonna come for sure, Dishonerd 2 isnt coming soon I think and Skyrim also not, they just endend its development, so Fallout 4 come’on!

  12. I know all of you are hoping for fallout 4 but do you realize the work they all have to do for the stories and All the random shit in those games? It took 5 years for Skyrim… So I’m sure if you be patient you’ll get the best fallout game yet, but highly doubtful that it’ll be this year or next
