Following the announcement of Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikami’s The Evil Within, new information and screenshots from the game have been revealed. Get ready for a nightmarish experience!
According to AllGamesBeta, The Evil Within follows detective Sebastian and his partner. In the beginning, both rush to the scene of a gruesome mass murder, where our protagonist’s squad gets taken out one by one by a mysterious entity, with the detective loosing conciousness. He then awakes in a land where monsters are wandering about, having to fight both these creatures, and his friend’s madness in order to uncover the mystery behind everything that’s happened, and is about to.
Key features include:
- A Return to Pure Survival Horror: From the father of the survival horror genre, Shinji Mikami. He appears once again as the director of this game, one which makes your blood run cold, but heats you right back up. Players must survive on limited resources, experiencing that supreme match of action and horror, that indescribable terror. To survive in an afflicted world, your anxiety and nerves will be pushed to the edge.
- Brutal Traps and Enemies with Puzzles: While struggling to survive, you’ll have to face indescribable terror, cruel traps, and sly mechanisms. Players can die in a trap all too easily, however, at times they can turn them against enemies.
- In an Unstable World, Not All Horrors are in Plain Sight: The player is driven into a corner as the world distorts and warps according to mysterious and evil horrors. The scenery: hallways, walls, doors, rooms, buildings, and even nature, all transforming in real time based on the player’s actions. And the threats keep coming from all directions.
- A Supernova of Horror: By setting one foot in this world weaved from lush backdrops, characters with personality, and a polished story, players will be sucked in, willing or unwilling, tension and anxiety rapidly mounting. When that fear is smashed and conquered, you can experience the bliss that can only be found in The Evil Within.
