Well, after much speculation (and excitement at E3), Bethesda’s The Evil Within finally has a release date. Shinji Mikami’s Resident Evil set the standard for survival horror so his return to the genre has been highly anticipated! The Evil Within is locked for an August 26th release date on Xbox 360, PS3, PS4, Xbox One, and PC. The accompanying video doesn’t give us much but it sets the tone. I’m ready.
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.
