Celebrate the release of The Evil Within — Shinji Mikami’s return to survival horror — with our all-new launch trailer!
The game follows Detective Sebastian Castellanos as he investigates a grisly murder scene. After an attack from an unknown force, Castellanos awakes to find himself in a deranged world filled with horrible monsters. He’ll have to fight to survive, while trying to unravel the mysteries surrounding his attack and the world he has found himself in.
The Evil Within is highly anticipated for looking like a truly scary game and a return to classic survival-horror mechanics, as well as the return of Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikami to the genre. With that series’ descent into more and more action-heavy titles, fans have been hoping that The Evil Within would bring back the scares. This trailer, and the early reviews seem to indicate that it has. Be sure to check back here for our review later on.
