The Evil Within Release Date Announced And Box Art Unveiled


Survival horror fans have a reason to rejoice today – there is an official release date for The Evil Within. Sadly, it’s a bit of a wait but it’s better than hearing “2014” everywhere. The game is set to be released on August 26 in North America and August 29 in Europe. An end of summer release date for the game means that it has more than enough time to get all the spit and shine it needs to be a great game. To celebrate the announcement, Bethesda made a vine to advertise it. You can watch it here. It’s a little gruesome so be forewarned. The box art, as shown above, depicts just what gamers are in store for – a gruesome, scary, and possibly deadly encounter.

The father of survival horror Shinji Mikami is the creator of The Evil Within and if he’s going to make it anything like Resident Evil, we’re sure to be in for a fine treat. The few trailers they’ve showed of the game have been so intense, that I feel they warrant a re-watch. Watch the 12 minute gameplay trailer again below:
