Shinji Mikami, the legendary creator of the Resident Evil series, promises a revival of the survival-horror genre with the highly anticipated release of The Evil Within. The game was announced well over a year ago and today fans finally get the release date they’ve been waiting for.[youtube http://youtu.be/MMKhoHl9BnE]
The Evil Within is scheduled to release in North America on August 26th, 2014 for Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS4, PS3 and PC. I know this seems like a long time to wait, but we must be patient. Shinji needs time to create.
Many fans worried that Shiinji Mikami had long-forgotten his horror roots, but this project is shaping up to be a memorable scare-fest. The environments are dark and grimy and the subtle hints of psychological horror make themselves apparent at all the right moments.
You can bet your sweet fanny that I’ll be picking this up at launch and there is a solid chance I might even take a day or two off work. You know, to catch up on all that sleep I won’t be getting.
