The Evil Within, Tango Gameworks’ new survival horror game led by Shinji Mikami, will launch for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC on August 26 in North America and August 29 in Europe, Bethesda Softworks announced.
The game follows Detective Sebastian Castellanos and his partners, who encounter a mysterious and powerful force while investigating the scene of a gruesome mass murder. After seeing his fellow officers slaughtered, Sebastian is ambushed and knocked unconscious to awaken in a deranged world where creatures wander among the dead. To unravel what’s behind this evil force, Sebastian must fight for survival.
The Evil Within promises to be a “pure survival horror,” giving players limited resources at their disposal. It will combine “highly-crafted environments, horrifying anxiety, and an intricate story” to create an “immersive world that will bring you to the height of tension.”
