For the past week, Bethesda Softworks has been teasing a new game with Vine videos and cryptic messages like “Guess again” when it was suggested that this was to be a new Fallout game. What it turned out to be is possibly a hell of a lot more exciting. The Evil Within is a new survival horror game from the creator of Resident Evil, Shinji Mikami and his Tango Gameworks studio.
New Survival Horror Game from Master of the Genre
April 19, 2013 (London, UK) – Bethesda Softworks®, a ZeniMax® Media company, today announced the planned release of The Evil Within™, a survival horror game developed at Tango Gameworks™ under the direction of renowned game designer and studio head, Shinji Mikami. Best known as the father of the survival horror genre and creator of the Resident Evil series, Mikami is a 20-year veteran of the industry who has developed numerous award-winning titles.
“We’re incredibly proud to announce The Evil Within,” said Mikami. “My team and I are committed to creating an exciting new franchise, providing fans the perfect blend of horror and action.”
Staggeringly little is known about the game other than it’s survival horror, and that it will be releasing in 2014 for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC and “next-gen consoles.”
What they have offered the world is this insanely creepy trailer:
As I long time fan of J-Horror this looks amazing even as a movie, so I’m incredibly excited to see some gameplay in the near future.
