Bethesda Posts "The Evil Within" Cinematic Trailer

The recent id Software acquisition, coupled with roping in of Shinji Mikami (directed early Resident Evil titles), and collaboration with his concern Tango Gameworks; gives Bethesda some solid chops with the survival horror genre. Their creation, The Evil Within, seeks to raise the bar with the genre, taking advantage of next-generation console and PC hardware.

Bethesda posted a cinematic reveal trailer for the game, which is rather abstract, but sets the tone for the game's voluminous high-tension environment. In addition to the PC, Bethesda plans to target all major current- and next-generation game consoles.

Caution: The trailer contains gore and mature content.

Writes Bethesda:

Shinji Mikami, the father of survival horror, is back to direct The Evil Within - a game embodying the meaning of pure survival horror. Highly-crafted environments, horrifying anxiety, and an intricate story weave together to create an immersive world that will bring players to the height of tension. The Evil Within is in development for the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, the PlayStation 3 computer entertainment system, PC and next generation consoles and is slated for release in 2014.
