This Evil Within trailer is classic Resident Evil

Looks familiar, right?

Your character gingerly approaching an abandoned building. That stammering creak of thick wooden doors. Abandoned police cars and constant downpour. A mysterious nemesis who already looks like a maddening boss fight.

Yes, this The Evil Within trailer feels like it is paying homage to the iconic Resident Evil series. That's most likely because the game's director, Shinji Mikami, is the brains behind the seminal '90s horror title Resident Evil.

Check out the video below - despite it looking horrendously creepy at times, there's a comforting familiarity to it.

The Evil Within release date is set for 2014. It's coming to PS3, PS4, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC. More details, and screens, beneath the trailer.
