Tag: The Evil Within

Description: Few names illicit such nerve-shredding terror in the video games industry as Shinji Mikami. The undisputed godfather of horror is set to return to the genre he helped define in 2014 with Tango Gameworks’ The Evil Within. Almost ten years after the seminal Resident Evil 4, Mikami’s latest outing tells the supernatural tale of Sebastian Castellanos; a detective who, after losing consciousness at a crime scene, wakes to discover a nightmarish realm crawling with demonic creatures. Admittedly, the horror genre has witnessed somewhat of an identity crisis of late; particularly with lodestone franchises like Resident Evil and Silent Hill under-performing in their latest outings. Nevertheless, The Evil Within looks to distance itself from trite blockbuster action through claustrophobic environments and a minimalist heads up display. What’s more, with Bethesda Softworks serving as the game’s publisher, The Evil Within has plenty of talent lurking behind the blood-drenched pixels, too.
