The Evil Within Is Set to Stalk PS4 and PS3 in August

Posted by Brett Young

Mind-blowing horror

Bethesda Softworks today confirmed a launch date for its upcoming third-person survival horror game, The Evil Within. The date with death was announced via the publisher's Twitter account, and included an image showing a glimpse of the horrors to come. The game, helmed by Resident Evil 4 director Shinji Mikami, and developed by Tango Gameworks, will be unleashed on the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 on 26th August in North America, with the European release emerging from the shadows a few days later on 29th August.

In an early preview of the game last year, we said that "if we’re already having nightmares over a slender serving of footage, then we’re destined to be psychologically battered by the time that we’re done with the full game". With that in mind, it's shaping up to be a frightfully good year for survival horror fans, as Outlast recently chased us down its grimy halls. Other upcoming scare-'em-ups include Dying Light, Daylight, and Alien: Isolation. Are you already setting money aside for a new pair of pants in preparation for The Evil Within, or does the prospect of exploring Beacon Mental Hospital have you reaching for the nearest light switch? Shriek at us in the comments section below.

Yes sir I think I'll be getting this hopefully its a true survival horror and not a wanna be action game my poor wallet never gets a break

From what I've seen this is creppy as hell and I'll definitely be picking this up. Looks like though there is going to be a big pile up of game releases at the end of summer, ouch goes the wallet.

Ahh....Shinji comes to rectify all the damage done to Resi Evil since Resi 5.

Very excited for this. Should bridge the gap between nostalgia and the new with Survival Horror perfectly.

My prediction? One of the best games of the year and a very good rival to Resi 4.

The demo I saw last year was pretty great. It looks like the spiritual successor to RE4 in a lot of ways, but it's perhaps a bit less action heavy from what I can tell. One sequence they showed you're basically just running away from this massive butcher dude.



GraveLordXD said:

@get2sammyb yeah just checked it out I really like what I see so far! didn't know this was coming out so soon
Glad to see what looks like a true survival horror we need more game like that

This is what I love seeing. I've gotten tired of all of the shooters and indie games. Finally a legitimate genre is being revived and on a beast of a machine, the PS4. Can't wait to turn the lights out!

Good to have a release date, now I just hope Mikami is able to mix the horror and action better than some other developers have done lately.

Finally! Japanese devs really need to step it up on the PS4. We need more games from them.
