The Evil Within Goes Gold Ahead of October Launch

Shinji Mikami's horror game finished ahead of release on October 14.


Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikami's upcoming console and PC horror game, The Evil Within, has gone gold ahead of its release in October.

Publisher Bethesda announced the news today, saying it is "no easy feat" to launch a game across five platforms (Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, PC) and around the world. But the game is one step closer now that development is finished.

The Evil Within was developed by Mikami and his team at Tango Gameworks, a wholly owned Bethesda subsidiary based in Japan. It launches October 14 in North America and Europe, October 16 in New Zealand and Australia, and on October 23 in Japan.

The game was originally pegged to launch in August before Bethesda delayed the game to late October--and then moved it up slightly to its new release date.

The Evil Within has been described by Mikami as a true return to the roots of the survival horror genre. For more, check out GameSpot's previous coverage of The Evil Within.
