From the father of the survival horror genre, Shinji Mikami comes The Evil Within. The Evil Within is a brand new game in the works by Bethesda Softworks and is set to bring the true survival horror experience back to gamers. The game is set to include highly-crafted environments, horrifying anxiety, and an intricate story weave together to create an immersive world that will bring players to the height of tension.
The trailer above is directed by Kyle Cooper known for the absolutely terrifying American Horror Story TV series, the awesome movie Se7en, as well as the hugely popular The Walking Dead TV show which shows within the trailer, and this tells me that Bethesda are off to a fantastic start.
There are many games recently that are claiming to provide a true survival horror experience, but only time will tell whether these claims are true. What are your thoughts on The Evil Within and the state of ‘survival horrors’ today?
