You’re going to be happy your PS4 controller can double as a night light. That light will serve as a small comfort as you play through the latest survival horror game from the genre’s most iconic game director, the legendary Shinji Mikami. Today we’re happy to announce that The Evil Within arrives on both PS4 and PS3 on Friday, 29th August.
Developed by the talented team at Tango Gameworks, The Evil Within embodies the meaning of pure survival horror. Highly-crafted environments, horrifying anxiety, and an intricate story are combined to create an immersive world that will bring you to the height of tension. With limited resources at your disposal, you’ll fight for survival and experience profound fear in this perfect blend of horror and action.
While investigating the scene of a gruesome mass murder, Detective Sebastian Castellanos and his partners encounter a mysterious and powerful force. After seeing the slaughter of fellow officers, Sebastian is ambushed and knocked unconscious. When he awakens, he finds himself in a deranged world where hideous creatures wander among the dead. Facing unimaginable terror, and fighting for survival, Sebastian embarks on a frightening journey to unravel what’s behind this evil force.
We’ll have much more on the game in the coming weeks and months. Until then, we leave you with the game’s official pack art. Sleep tight!
