"In science, one must do any number of things a layperson may find... disgusting. I've done many things others would consider... distasteful." In The Evil Within, a new survival horror video game from Resident Evil‘s Shinji Mikami, Detective Castellanos wakes up in a nightmare world that you can explore in the one hour of gameplay footage released by Bethesda Softworks.

Tango Gameworks and Bethesda Softworks have slated The Evil Within for an October 14th release on the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC.

“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.”
