Bethesda have released 12 minutes of gameplay footage from The Evil Within, the Shinji Mikami-developed survival horror game.
And ooh, it’s looking nice. Sort of like a much more messed-up Resident Evil 4, I suppose, with less combat; the video opens with our protagonist – Detective Sebastien Castellanos – hanging upside down in some psychopath’s abattoir. This quickly leads to sneaking, running, hiding in lockers, and generally attempting not to get cut up by a cannibalistic lunatic with a chainsaw.
Things go a bit more Resi 4 after that, with some third-person shooting and a defend-a-location-from-hordes-of-slow-moving-enemies bit, but… well, it’s still looking pretty damn tasty. See for yourself below.
The Evil Within is due out in 2014.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.
