The Evil Within Looks Like Survival Horror at Its Finest

Although this site focuses primarily on classic and indie titles, I couldn’t help posting The Evil Within’s latest trailer, which will make an appearance at this year’s Tokyo Game Show. For the uninitiated, The Evil Within is an upcoming third-person survival horror game created by Shinji Mikami (Resident Evil) and interestingly, the title shares some similarities with classic horror films.

The Evil Within puts players in the shoes of police detective Sebastian Castellanos who’s sent to an asylum to investigate a crime. Suddenly, Sebastian is attacked and passes out. But when he wakes up, he finds himself in the sprawling mansion with some horrible creatures.

The Evil Within is being developed for PC, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 and is expected to come out in 2014.
