The Evil Within
The Evil Within Screens are Pretty, Horrific

Here's some images from the new Shinji Mikami game, The Evil Within, courtesy of IGN.

The screens show some of the loveable characters revealed in the largely live-action trailer from earlier today. There's Safe Full of Tentacles for a Face Man, Too Many Arms Woman, and a few common or garden Dudes With Their Guts Hanging Out. Enjoy!

Oh, and it looks like the game has a third-person viewpoint similar to Resident Evil. Which is nice.

The Evil Within is slated for release in 2014 on Xbox 360, PS3, PC and “next generation consoles.”

The first screen looks awesome, looks like stealth could play a huge role in the game

I may not play this, and not because it looks bad or anything.

It looks terrifying and I may shit myself if I play this!!!

Kudos for them trying something new, hopefully it's a real survival horror game, there's too few of them nowadays.

I was reading a manga of the guys had a safe for a head... No tenticles though. I do hope they steer away from that pyramid head feel, I'd like this to be more original

These screens look jaw dropping. Good to see something new coming out. Shame I had to wait until next tear, but at least it's getting a 360 release. Best not play around my daughter though. Scare the shit out of her.

I'll laugh so hard when the is a major success. EA & Capcom will finally get the message maybe that watered down 'accessible' games are just bullshit.

That said, hopefully this game is made properly and isn't an easy QTE/action fest.

Couldn't look more Resident Evil 4 without actually being Resident Evil 4. Especially the last pic with the magma and the chains in the background, looks straight out of the Castle act in RE4 where you deal with stone towers shaped as dragons.

So... Resident Evil creator really just wants to make Silent Hill games? Because that's really all this looks like. I'll reserve judgement until I play it. But for someone claiming to want to "return to survival horror to it's roots", he seems to have conveniently forgotten that he's the reason why the genre strayed so far from those roots to begin with.

And @14. This is neither Skyrim, nor Fallout. Nor is Wet, or Dishonored, or any of the other IPs that Bethesda publishes, you tool. If you want Skyrim and Fallout elements, GO PLAY SKYRIM AND FALLOUT.

I don't understand why developers make games with different titles, and then create them similar to other games they've already done. If you didn't tell me, I would guess this is resident evil. So why not just make another resident evil game? It's going to end up that way anyways.

Massively looking forward to this. As Mikami stated earlier, "I've found my focus and once again I'm striving for pure survival horror," he said. "I am being very hands-on in the development of this game to ensure that the quality is there. Rest assured."

And when Mikami is a director and has full control of a game, he tends to make amazing titles. Such examples include: Resident Evil (and REmake), Dino Crisis, Resident Evil 4, Vanquish.

He wasn't a director for other resident evils but still played a part, normally as a producer or something and I think it's fair to say when he is a director, he makes damn good games and to want to go back into survival horror during a time when there's so little of the genre around (this generation anyway) is amazing

@40 I have to disagree with you there - he had no part within RE5 or 6. He directed 4 and the original Resident Evil. I think the blame shouldn't be on him but maybe the other directors who took over with another vision and intentions.

@53 it's probably people confused since the original creator of resident evil worked for capcom, they must be assuming he still does when he doesn't anymore.

@37 This looks nothing like CLASSIC Resident evil, looks more like Modern Silent Hill.

Beside this particular game, I'm reading between the lines that many more games in 2014 will be getting both X360 and 720 releases. One more reason nit to buy the new console and stick with my current pet :)

ok, this looks much better than that awful live action trailer. BUT, I still think this games looks like nothing more than a Silent Hill game. Maybe Shinji should have just went to Konami, he could have saved SH, as the last few have sorta sucked, Books Of Memories, yeah you. It does looks a little curious though, the screen shot of the police cars leads me to believe it has a relatively present day setting, but the characters wardrobe and weapons look a little outdated? I dunno, still need to see more of this game, until then I'll just call it Silent Hill 9: The Evil Within.

I love survival horror and I super duper love Bethesda, but these pics and the video from the earlier post look stupid.

I think a lot of you just want to like this game without actually watching what they're putting out for us to see.
