Watch your head, Detective Castellanos.

Six new screenshots of The Evil Within, Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikami’s upcoming horror game, have come out of QuakeCon 2013.

Additionally, a short gameplay video from what appears to be a behind closed doors presentation of the game has surfaced. In it, you’ll see Detective Sebastian Castellanos shoot, hide, and have his head sawed off.

Watch the footage below. View the screenshots at the gallery. (On top of the six new screenshots, I’ve included the images released on the game’s Twitter last month.)

    I’m disappointed. I knew the RE creator was making this…but I didn’t think he was going to make a reskin of the series. It looks good nonetheless….

      I think there will be some new elements that he can’t talk about, because knowing in advance basically ruins it. Having the whole thing be more psychologically focused is new for Mikami, and to RE. It gives him a lot more leeway to try out different things in level design that would really only work in a Silent Hill game, and not Resident Evil – stuff like rooms that don’t make logical sense, alternate dimensions, and other supernatural twists. RE was bound by fictional science for the most part. This isn’t.

      Also, there are traps and other items and weapons you can use which should mix up tactics.

      I’d just trust that it’s going to be awesome at this point, and let the rest be a surprise.

        Contrary to what I’ve said, I’m still very much looking forward to this. I had no idea what to expect.

      The game has a lot of sneaking around. Combat doesn’t play a central role. You have to do a lot of hiding from what I understand.

    Short clip is short :(

    Looking decent so far, need to see more! If its Resident Evil 4 with HORROR, I’ll likely get it.

  • Syltique

    Looks like more Resident Evil 4, which is about the highest compliment I can give to a game.

    Officially going on media blackout for this. I don’t need to see anything more to be sold on it.

    I thought I was looking at Clark Kent for a moment. (Joke)
    Man, I want to play this game so bad…

    That Head saw off was definitely RE4

    I’m sold.

    Oh thank goodness, no tank controls it seems. I was worried about movement and aiming seem excellent, plus awesome RE4 style chainsaw sequence; can’t wait.

  • PrinceHeir

    looks ace :P

    i wonder if it will have a health system of some sorts :P

    reminds me of The Last of Us, especially the sneaking part.

    but the horror will be amazing!

    can’t wait Mikami!

    Capcom got slapped, haha.

    Dude gets his head sawed off and people cheer?

    Okay, lol.

    The Japanese dude with the glasses looks cool why wasn’t he the main character
