Bethesda has released a new trailer for The Evil Within, its attempt to see if a big-budget survival horror title still has a place in modern gaming.
Lone figure? Check. A spooky mansion? Check. Weird monster things? Check check check. Right now The Evil Within looks like everything Resident Evil 6 was not.
Lest we forget, The Evil Within is being developed by original Resident Evil and Resident Evil 4 director Shinji Mikami and his Tokyo-based studio Tango Gameworks.
What do you think of the new footage? I find the use of barbed wire genuinely unsettling, and there's enough buried in the trailer to suggest some seriously messed up psychological stuff--weird field of flowers, anyone?--will feature in the final game.
The Evil Within will be released on August 29 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC.
