Earlier this morning, Bethesda officially announced The Evil Within with a creepy live-action trailer, sans any gameplay. I’m not a fan of trailers that show nothing of the game they’re advertising, because even if the trailer is amazing it doesn’t accurately represent the game.
Thankfully, we’ve also been given a batch of deeply unsettling screenshots that show off what the game will actually look like. After looking through them, The Evil Within looks strikingly similar to Resident Evil 4, which Mikami helmed back when he was with Capcom. The camera, combat, even a few of the enemies and locations. Check them out after the break!
Remember: this game is still a ways off, so these screens aren’t necessarily representative of what the final game will look like.
It looks like that four-armed witch from the live-action trailer may be a boss in the game. She looks terrifying. I can’t wait to curb-stomp her freaky ass when The Evil Within comes to the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC and next-generation consoles in 2014.
