PS4 and PS3 Survival Horror The Evil Within Will Scare You Silly a Week Early

Posted by Kell Andersen


Heralded as a true survival horror experience, and considered the spiritual successor to the widely adored Resident Evil 4, The Evil Within's gory gameplay has several of us here at Push Square pretty buzzed. Unfortunately, the title was delayed earlier this year, and was not scheduled to release until late October.

However, at QuakeCon 2014, Bethesda announced that we'll actually be getting our hands on Shinji Mikami's latest outing sooner than we previously anticipated. Indeed, the game will be scaring your pants off on 14th October in North America, 16th October in Australia, and 18th October in Europe. That's an entire week early, in case you were wondering. Perhaps the Maryland-based publisher is attempting to jostle for space in the already jam-packed month of October.

Will you be picking up The Evil Within, or – like this writer – do you plan on avoiding it like the plague? Duck for cover in the comments section below.

18th October is a Saturday, so I'm guessing they've made a mistake there. I look forward to this title's release date being changed for the 10,000th time.

I'll definitely be picking up alien isolation so this will have to wait a month or so, I'm hoping to avoid any gameplay and just skim reviews as i can't see there being no spoilers.

The dirty rusted visuals and 'wtf is that' look rather like Silent Hill....and that's good as I loved SH1, 2 and 3...before it all went so very wrong. Looks good, but there has been a drought of horror games to play and suddenly they're building up on my systems again. Outlast: whistleblower DLC....dead space 3, lone survivor, and more horror incoming. I always loved horror games and it's a good thing they are getting a strong showing again.

There is so much to play come Sept/Oct it will be hard to choose.

I was looking forward to it, then started reading some more recent previews that weren't exactly glowing. With Destiny releasing a month before and Assassin's Creed Unity, Far Cry 4, CoD: Advanced Warfare and NBA 2K15 all around the same time I'll probably skip The Evil Within unless reviews are really, really good.

@Gamer83 I'd say the only games on that list you should consider are Destiny, Far Cry, and The Evil Within. The other three are all yearly games. In my opinion, The Evil Within should be at the top of that list, considering that it is the only one of the six games you mentioned that is offering something unique. What I mean by that is out of the other five games, three of them are FPS, one is a yearly sports game, and the last is a yearly AC game. Of course, this is just my opinion of your opinion, it's not like I am trying force beliefs on you or anything. waves beliefs vigorously

I would be getting it, but right now I have my sights set on Bayonetta 2 for October.

This and Ultra SFIV are probably the only PS3 games I am getting for the remainder of the year, as I have quite a backlog. That said, I am eager for this as much as if I was getting ten games.

Alien: Isolation for me, but I am definitely keeping my eye on this. I love horror games.

Well for one, 2K15 is a definite buy, I'm a huge NBA fan and those games are among the best each year so it's an easy purchase. I also know I'll like AC and CoD Advanced Warfare I'm taking a flyer on because it seems like the most interesting game in the series since MW 1. I'd love to be looking forward to The Evil Within because I like to support new IPs, that said, the new IP has to be something that I can be sure I'll like. Destiny for example, or The Last of Us in 2013, I knew from the start those were going to be good. Mikami's, however, haven't always clicked with me and while I was initially excited about The Evil Within, recent stuff I've read has me thinking it's not the kind of game I want. If it comes out and gets high praise, I'll give it a try though.
