Bethesda has released an extended playthrough of Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikami’s next horror game, The Evil Within, and boy, does this game look intense. Some of it is footage we’ve seen before, usually broken up, like in the recent gameplay trailer, but this is seamless. We finally get to see how this game plays, without fancy editing and marketing text.
Turn off the lights, crank up the volume and enjoy.
From watching the demo, I can see Mikami’s hands everywhere. From the atmosphere to the combat, including the way you set enemies aflame to finish them, as well asx the intensity of the chainsaw chases and the dreadful lulls in the action. It might be a trick of the editing, but it looks like Sebastian is stuck in a serial killer’s nightmare, going from one horrifying scenario to the next.
One thing’s for sure; I definitely can’t wait to see more — how about you?
The Evil Within comes to the PC, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 in 2014.
