The Evil Within trailer shows off brand new gameplay, might be the horror game we’re waiting for
The new game from the legendary creator of the Resident Evil series, Shinji Mikami, has had it’s first gameplay trailer revealed. Powered by id Tech 5, and slated for release sometime next year, The Evil Within looks to revive the survival horror genre that has become, in Mikami’s own words, “all action.” In a recent interview with IGN, Mikami stated that, “my definition of survival horror is that first of all it has to be scary” and the gameplay sure lives up to that.
The trailer shows the PlayStation 3 version but the game will also be coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC. With Mikami at the helm the game is sure to be atmospheric and with The Last of Us piquing many people’s attention in the survival genre perhaps now is the time for a return to the tough horror element that has waned somewhat since the last generation.
