The Evil Within Launching August 26
The highly anticipated survival horror The Evil Within has finally received a release date – August 26 for North America and August 29 for Europe. While this is developer Tango Gameworks' first game, founder Shinji Mikami is no stranger to the survival horror genre. In fact, Shinji Mikami is considered by many to be the father of the survival horror genre, having created Resident Evil, the first game to take on that term.
While the Resident Evil series has moved more toward pure action than survival horror, The Evil Within promises to bring gamers back to the days of true survival horror. "Highly-crafted environments, horrifying anxiety, and an intricate story are combined to create an immersive world that will bring you to the height of tension. With limited resources at your disposal, you'll fight for survival and experience profound fear in this perfect blend of horror and action."
The Evil Within will be available for Windows PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, and Xbox 360. Sadly there is no new trailer released, but if you haven't checked out the game before, here's the extended gameplay trailer released late last year:
