Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikami is returning to his roots on PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 next year with The Evil Within. The title – which publisher Bethesda has been teasing for the past couple of days – was revealed on IGN mere moments ago, alongside a genuinely haunting live action trailer which is not for the faint-hearted.

“We’re incredibly proud to announce The Evil Within,” Mikami said. “My team and I are committed to creating an exciting new franchise, providing fans the perfect blend of horror and action.”

The trailer shows a shaking man assembling some kind of contraption out of barbed wire. It ends with the image of a figure with a safe on his head exploding into a mess of bloody tentacles. Unsurprisingly, it’s absolutely horrific. If you’re not eating, point your peepers through here to watch the full thing, and let us know what you think in the comments section below.
