A man makes barbed wire as a four-armed Witch from Left 4 Dead climbs out of a puddle of blood and a man with too much glass in his face stands there looking all creepy. That’s what you can expect from this debut trailer for The Evil Within — previously known as project Zwei.
“We’re incredibly proud to announce The Evil Within,” said Mikami. “My team and I are committed to creating an exciting new franchise, providing fans the perfect blend of horror and action.” Watch its intensely creepy live-action debut trailer after the jump.
I have to admit, I thought this might be a vampire game with those text effects in the beginning. I think a half dozen vampire movies have done that same exact thing. After watching the whole thing, I honestly have no idea. A barbed wire creation sim? I wouldn’t put it past Mikami.
This is the next — and potentially the last — game to be directed by Shinji Mikami, the creator of the Resident Evil franchise. Mikami’s Tango Gameworks studio is developing it, with Bethesda handling the publishing.
The Evil Within launches on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC and next-generation consoles in 2014.
