The Evil Within trailer shows monsters, kills them

The Evil Within

The (entirely made up) alternate title for this video is "One Minute To Face-Tentacle". The actual title for this video is "Fight for Life". Either way, it is, to date, probably the most enlightening glimpse into how Bethesda's upcoming survival horror will play.

I am particularly fond of the name "Agony Crossbow". As if crossbows were designed for any other purpose.

Designed by Resident Evil's Shinji Mikami, The Evil Within purports to be a return to classic survival horror. Think low ammo, locked doors, and a creepy dude with a giant hammer and his head in a safe. It's out next week, on 14 October.

Phil leads PC Gamer's UK team. He was previously the editor of the magazine, and thinks you should definitely subscribe to it. He enjoys RPGs and immersive sims, and can often be found reviewing Hitman games. He's largely responsible for the Tub Geralt thing, but still isn't sorry.
