I’ve been saying for awhile that The Evil Within is out in August, so either I made that up or Bethesda have sneakily pushed it back. Either way, the Shinji Mikami-led horror title has today been dated for 21 October (or 23 October or 24 October, depending on whether you’re in the US, Australia, or Europe).
Said release date/delay announcement comes alongside the launch of a new trailer – which focuses on reaction shots of people being scared by The Evil Within – and an announcement of the pre-order bonuses. In this case, you’ll get access to the Fighting Chance Pack, which nets you a Medical Kit, a stat-upgrading Green Gel, a double-barrelled shotgun with three shells, an Incendiary Agony Bolt, and a Poison Agony Bolt. I remain entirely hopeful that this won’t make the game much easier, because pre-order bonuses that net you extra items always worry me.
You can have a looksee at the new trailer below.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 about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning 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.
