Prepare to crap your pants as the godfather of Survival Horror, Shinji Mikami is returning to the genre that made him famous, lifting the lid on his latest creation; The Evil Within.
Currently in Devlopment at Mikami’s new studio Tango Softworks, The Evil Within tells the tale of Detective Sebastian Castellanos;
“While investigating the scene of a gruesome mass murder, Detective Sebastian Castellanos and his partners encounter a mysterious and powerful force. After seeing the slaughter of fellow officers, Sebastian is ambushed and knocked unconscious. When he awakens, he finds himself in a deranged world where hideous creatures wander among the dead.
Facing unimaginable terror, and fighting for survival, Sebastian embarks on a frightening journey to unravel what’s behind this evil force.”
Promising a return to Pure Survival Horror, The game will give players limited resources while facing horrific creatures and overcoming deadly traps, in a world that will shift and alter itself in real time.
