The Evil Within release date confirmed

Mikami's latest horror game to release in August

Bethesda has confirmed The Evil Within will be released on August 29 in Europe and August 26 in North America.

The Evil Within is the first game from Tango Gameworks, which was founded in 2010 by Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikami and later acquired by Bethesda owner ZeniMax Media.

The Evil Within stars Detective Sebastian Castellanos who, as previously revealed, encounters "a mysterious and powerful force" that brutally kills his colleagues.

Sebastian is knocked unconscious and when he wakes up, finds himself in "a deranged world where hideous creatures wander among the dead."

In our first The Evil Within preview we said, "The Evil Within is a welcome return to survival horror. It mixes the over-the-shoulder combat (and chainsaw-wielding nutters) of Resident Evil 4 with the grim, psychological horror of Silent Hill, and the id Tech-powered visuals are beautifully atmospheric."

The Evil Within will be released for PS3, PS4, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC.
