Shinji Mikami and Tango Gameworks’ new survival horror game finally has a release date. The Evil Within will launch across Playstation 3, Playstation 4, PC, Xbox 360, and Xbox One on August 26th in North America and August 29th in Europe.
The game is somewhat of a psychological horror experience that follows Detective Sebastian Castellanos and his assistants, who discover a supernatural and inexplicably powerful force at the scene of a grisly mass murder. Castellanos witnesses his assistants killed right before his very eyes, only to be knocked out. Later he wakes up in a twisted world where monsters and the dead walk the earth.
The Evil Within is described as “pure survival horror,” harkening back to what made the genre a classic, by limiting the resources and supplies that you’ll be able to find. The worlds you’ll experience are highly detailed and crafted, while the story and overall experience is set to heighten your anxiety and ultimately immerse you with horrifying tension.
