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 has been PC gaming since the '90s, when RPGs had dice rolls and open world adventures were weird and French. Now he's the deputy editor of PC Gamer; commissioning features, filling magazine pages, and knowing where the apostrophe goes in '90s. He plays Scout in TF2, and isn't even ashamed.
