The Evil Within announced by Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikami
UPDATE: Story details outlined. New survival horror title coming to Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC, and next-gen consoles in 2014.
Tango Gameworks, the studio helmed by Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikami, has a new announced survival horror title called The Evil Within.
The Evil Within is due to be released on next-generation consoles, Xbox 360, PC, and PlayStation 3 in 2014.
“We’re incredibly proud to announce The Evil Within,” Mikami said in a statement. “My team and I are committed to creating an exciting new franchise, providing fans the perfect blend of horror and action.”
A live action trailer for the game was also released, showing a man wrapping his body in barbed wire and a four-armed monster being birthed in a pool of blood.
No specifics about the game have yet been detailed.
The horror game will use id Software's latest graphic engine called id Tech 5. The game's plot centers on the exploits of a detective named Sebastian, who is whisked away into a world of death and madness during a mass murder investigation. The game will return to classic survival horror game roots set by titles like Alone in the Dark and the first Resident Evil. Players must survive with what little resources they can scrounge up in the game world. The game's environments will shapeshift and transform based on their actions in the game. The game will also feature an assortment of traps that can kill players fast, but the flip side is that they can use them against enemies in certain situations.
The Evil Within will be out in 2014 for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360. Stay tuned to GameSpot for more information.
