Bethesda, makers of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and Fallout, has finally announced plans to release a new game. The title, The Evil Within, is a significant departure from the studio’s previous work.
Bethesda has been teasing gamers about an announcement for days, releasing weird, even creepy videos of burning sunflowers and the like.
Now it’s finally revealed that it will be making a survival horror game known as The Evil Within alongside Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikami and his studio, Tango Gameworks.
What’s that noise? Oh right, the entire gaming universe sighing with disappointment.
A Facebook page dedicated to the game says The Evil Within will be released sometime in 2014 and will be available for PC, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360. The new PlayStation 4 and Xbox 720 (or whatever you want to call it) will also get a version.
Mikami says the game will be a “pure” survival-horror game and will put players in “highly-crafted environments” where they’ll feel “horrifying anxiety.” Mikami says he hopes to “create an immersive world that will bring players to the height of tension.”
Mikami says he plans to work closely with both Tango Studios and Bethesda on this one.
The only media made available for the game is this crappy, live-action trailer. It reminds one of the equally crappy Silent Hill movie.
Sigh. I’m going to play some Skyrim.
