We're less than two weeks away from the release of Shinji Mikami’s The Evil Within and a new trio of behind-the-scenes video interviews peel back the story's outer layer and look at its lifeblood, examining the game's audio and visual elements and reflecting on the creatures and storytelling of horror movies that influenced the nightmarish world of the Resident Evil creator's latest offering.

“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.

Developed by Shinji Mikami and the talented team at Tango Gameworks, The Evil Within embodies the meaning of pure 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.”

Tango Gameworks and Bethesda Softworks will release The Evil Within on the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC. The Evil Within hits shelves in North America, Europe, South Africa, India, and the Middle East on October 14th and is set to come out in Australia and New Zealand on October 16th and in Japan on October 23rd.
