The Evil Within has arrived. Can Detective Sebastian survive?
Bethesda Softworks, released The Evil Within today in North America and Europe. This new Survival Horror title was created under the direction of Shinji Mikami and is currently available for Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PC.
Bethesda claims that The Evil Within “embodies the meaning of pure survival horror”. Featuring highly-crafted environments, “horrifying anxiety”, limited resources, you will need to fight for survival while being extremely careful not to run out of said resources.
Shinji Mikami stated, “It was incredibly important to me and the team to bring the Survival Horror genre back to its roots. For us, it was all about creating fear and giving the player the enjoyment of conquering it. Up until now we’ve kept a lot of the game under wraps to avoid spoilers, so it’s very exciting that people are now able to experience the game from beginning to end.”
The Evil Within follows the story of Detective Sebastian Castellanos as he and his partners are called in to investigate a gruesome mass murder. Sebastian’s fellow officers are slaughtered, and the detective is ambushed and knocked unconscious. When he finally awakens, he discovers that he is trapped in a deranged world filled with hideous creatures. Now he must unravel what’s behind the mysterious, evil force, and if possible, put a stop to it. But will he survive?
