The Evil Within Release Date Announced

The new game from legendary game developer Shinji Mikami (Resident Evil, Dino Crisis, Vanquish), The Evil Within, will be released on August 26 in North American and August 29 in Europe. The game will be available on PS4, Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360, and PC.

The Evil Within is a monumental return to true survival from the man who pioneered the genre in the 90′s. The game thus far looks absolutely horrific, disturbing, nightmarish, and we wouldn’t have it any other way. The genre has been in a rough patch for awhile now, but between this title and several others (such as Outlast) it seems we may be witnessing the spectacular return of one of gaming’s most unique genres.

This title is being developed by a new studio called Tango Gameworks. It was established by Shinji Mikami several years ago and purchased by Zenimax Media (aka: Bethesda).
