As far as “most imposing and threatening names” go, I’ve got to be honest and say that “Boxman” isn’t really high on my list. Nonetheless, that’s how this new The Evil Within trailer has been introduced: it “gives a first look at fighting one of the game’s most terrifying villains, Boxman.”
Judging by the actual content of the trailer, he’s that chap you’ve probably seen in previous screenshots. The really huge one with an axe, and a metal box on his head. I guess I can see why he’s called Boxman, if nothing else.
Lack of gravitas aside, I’m really rather looking forward to The Evil Within, in that it looks a bit like Shadows of the Damned or Resi 4 with a psychological horror bent to it. Alas, judging by this trailer, I mean “looks like” in terms of both graphics and gameplay, but hopefully the PC version will be a bit shinier. Have a look at the trailer below, and decide whether or not you’re looking forward to launch on 29 August.Related to this article
Tim has been playing PC games for longer than he’s willing to admit. He’s written for a number of publications, but has been with PC Invasion – in all its various incarnations – for over a decade. When not writing things about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning some really terrible ones, making people angry in Dota 2, or playing something obscure and random. He’s also weirdly proud of his status as (probably) the Isle of Man’s only professional games journalist.
