According to a post on the Bethesda Blog today, starting this week players can pre-order The Evil Within and its season pass via XBox Live on both XBox 360 and XBox One. Upon pre-ordering, you will be able to preload the game immediately and have it ready for launch day (October 14th, 2014). It should also be noted that the game is already available for pre-order on the PlayStation Network (in both NA and EU) for PS3 and PS4, as well as on Steam. Preloads for these two platforms will be coming shortly.
So what is The Evil Within? Well, it is a survival horror game, which is no shocker given the screenshot above. Brought to us by the creator of the famous Resident Evil series, Shinji Mikami, and a team of talented developers at Tango Gameworks, the game embodies pure survival horror. The game’s intricate story and highly-crafted environments come together to create an immersive and tension-filled world. With only scarce resources at your disposal, you must fight to survive. But you knew resources would be tight, didn’t you?
So what on Earth is going on? Well, The Evil Within puts you in the shoes of Detective Sebastian Castellanos. As he and his partners investigate a gruesome set of mass murders, they discover a powerful and mysterious force. After seeing fellow officers slaughtered, Sebastian is halted by an ambush and knocked out. He awakens only to find himself lost in a twisted and deranged world. Terrible creatures wander amongst the dead. Sebastian is left with no choice but to fight for his life as he faces the unseen horrors awaiting him when he sets out to get to the bottom of things.
Are you brave enough to step into the shoes of Detective Sebastian and unravel the truth? Or will you flee in terror?
