After a couple of creepy video uploads on Vine this week, Bethesda has pulled the curtain back on The Evil Within. Developed by Tango Softworks, the game will be directed by Shinji Mikami, creator of the Resident Evil franchise.
IGN has a live-action debut trailer and say that they’ll have exclusive details on Monday, but a press release on Bethesda Japan‘s site has already spilled the beans on several key details.
The survival horror game, known as Psychobreak in Japan, will focus on a detective named Sebastian and his partner as they investigate a grisly murder scene. However, something is causing the officers on the scene to turn on each other, and eventually they turn on Sebastian. He loses consciousness, and when he awakens in a mysterious place filled with horrific monsters.
The game is described as “a true return to survival horror,” offering the player limited resources as they solve puzzles and avoid deadly traps. Environments will also change and distort based on player actions.
The Evil Within is being developed on Id Tech 5, and will release in 2014 on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PC, and next-generation consoles.
