Bethesda and Mikami uncover The Evil Within
Shinji Mikamis mysterious new survival horror codenamed Zwei has been unveiled today as The Evil Within, coming in 2014 to PC, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and next-gen consoles. Despite this being the games second announcement, we still dont know much more than we did a year ago. Still, Bethesda has released a pretty live-action trailer to look at.
The creepy trailer offers the sorts of nasties youd expect from a survival horror: eerie environments, mutilation, monstrous human-ish figures, and the sound of grating metal. Live-action trailers are often worthless, but gosh, this is pleasant tone-setting.
"Were incredibly proud to announce The Evil Within," Resident Evil creator Mikami said in todays announcement. "My team and I are committed to creating an exciting new franchise, providing fans the perfect blend of horror and action." And thats about all.
Mikamis leading development at his new studio Tango Gameworks, which is owned by Bethesda parent company ZeniMax. Bethesda Softworks is publishing.
