Win A Free Copy of The Evil Within Signed by Shinji Mikami by Voting for an Alternative Cover

Which cover are you voting for?

Publisher Bethesda is currently offering fans a chance to win a free copy of Tango Gameworks’ upcoming horror game The Evil Within signed by designer Shinji Mikami.

To win one of 10 copies, simply email bethblog@bethsoft.com before 10:00 a.m. on August 8 with your vote for which of the three covers below should be the alternative cover for the game: Asylum, Piercing Eye, or Twisted. The image above will still be the game’s default cover, but the alternative cover that gets that most votes will be the reverse sleeve for the launch edition of The Evil Within. If you’re not interested in the free game but still want to vote for your favorite cover, simply use the online poll on Bethesda’s blog.

Winners will receive a copy of the game for the platform of their choice—Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 or PC.

Developed by Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikami and his team at Tango Gameworks, The Evil Within is set to release on October 21. Mikami has described the game as a true return to the roots of the survival horror genre.

Asylum for sure! The others are cool but I think the Asylum Cover best represents the game.

Well Asylum wins for me. It´s looks amazing, it´s define what game brings to us. old asylum, with no one other building aroundm only woods. It´s just looks like what i expect. It´s just looks great and atmospheric. Piercing eye is pretty nice, but honestly i dont know if its good choice. It´s definetly creative, but it´s not too much great. And Twisted looks just "boring" how many times we saw this kind of posters? Many times. For me it´s definetly winner Asylum. It´s best.

I voted for the "Piercing Eye" alternative cover because eyes have been said to be the windows to the soul. I figured it fit. After all, what better way to see the evil within than through the eyes? ;)

Asylum looks more mysterious and its really appealing reminds me of the port in SH 2

I like Asylum the most. It kinda reminds me of RE 1. Creepy atmosphere. Not sure if i will be able to play it though. I get scared much :P

I vote for asylum, not because it stands out but the fact it provides more of an in depth experience of what you are to expect with the game, it tells people that you are alone, but not everything is what it seems. The asylum itself is the point that stands out, you can feel the curiosity factor, what is in there, what will you find, when you find something what will you do, it describes the game and sums up what emotions the player will experience.

Yeah, but that Piercing Eye is just stabbing into thy own soul!!!!!

The original cover is lame. Every time I see alternate or double covers in games, I know that the devs are not happy with the original. Whoever decide what boxart the game should have should just stop. Let the devs decide that. Remember Bioshock Infinite ? oh my god...

The Evil Within huh?  So you could say the evil is... resident... if you will.

Even the cover looks like the Resident Evil 4 one, especially the first.

I would say Asylum, it gives the best chill effect, and reminds me of some horror movies...

I like the Asylum cover art. The red on black silhouette catches my eye more so than the other two covers.

Piercing Eye looks the best to me, because of it's reminiscent look of retro horror/thriller films.

Asylum looks cool

I hope they sort out the texturestreaming issues and framerate before release. It looks dated visually, but artistically and gameplay wise, it looks great.

Asylum is the best cover. The rest look they were rushed by some amateur photoshopper.

Asylum looks more like a horror game, it reminds me of "Alone In The Dark" in PSone

The asylum cover looks really cool with Sebastion over looking the hell that he's about to enter.

Asylum would be the best choice because its very similar to the one from RE4, the one with the chainsaw guy in the forest :D

@redgouf Why? Just send an email now, and you have nothing to worry about. As long as you send the email before August 8 you should be okay.

@FLEEBS @redgouf Wow. I mistook the meaning of the deadline. I thought it started Friday, but ended at 10am. Thanks.
