Bethesda brings scary back with The Evil Within

Evil-within-bannerSo it turns out that those weird Vine videos Bethesda was sending out last week had nothing to do with Fallout.  Or the NHRA.  Instead, they’ve unveiled a brand new game that aims to bring the horror back to survival.  And they’ve recruited one of the originators of the genre to do it.  Read on for the details.

If you’ve been reading Save Game for awhile (and if you have, THANK YOU!), you might remember a story that we ran last April, concerning a newly formed partnership between Bethesda Softworks and Shinji Mikami, the creator of Resident Evil.  At the time, all we knew was that they were making a game together.  Now, almost a year later, we know a lot more.  The game is called The Evil Within, and is scheduled for release sometime next year.  Bethesda made the official announcement on their blog, and included links to the game’s numerous social media sites, including Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, and Instagram.

For some strange reason, they’ve given exclusive details about the game l to some weird website I’ve never heard of called IGN.  Whatever, Bethesda.  When you’re ready to play in the big leagues, you let us know, OK?  Head on over to IGN for an inside look at the game, and some early screenshots.  There’s also a live action trailer, which you can watch below.  Be warned, however, that the trailer is not for the squeamish.  It contains some truly unnerving imagery, but what else could you expect from the creator of Resident Evil?

    Joe was born in a time of war. A console war. Two electronic titans were locked in a heated battle for the living rooms of America. Which titans, you ask? Well, the Fairchild Channel F and the Atari 2600 of course. You see, Joe is old. So many of his favorite games tend to be on the older side as well. But that hasn’t stopped him from developing unhealthy obsessions with such modern franchises as Halo and Mass Effect. Just don’t tell him how long it’s been since the original Metroid was released. His aging heart can’t take the shock.
