The Evil Within's latest title update kills off letterboxing


And makes casual mode even easier
Jun 23
 
The Evil Within had a letterboxed aesthetic that didn't fly with everyone. It added to the cinematic presentation, but some people couldn't stand it. Coming up on a year after release, Tango Gameworks is just now making ...




The Executioner is the last Evil Within DLC, out May 26


First-person
May 20
 
The last bit of The Evil Within DLC drops this month. "The Executioner" features an unexpected shift to the first-person perspective and "series of battle arenas all from the...perspective of The Keeper," if you were thinkin...




The Evil Within debuts 'The Consequence' DLC today


Starring detective Juli Kidman
Apr 21
 
The Evil Within didn't live up to everything I thought it would be, but it's still a very unique survival horror title in a sea of action-oriented affairs. Today you can grab the second major bit of DLC, titled The Cons...




The Evil Within's first DLC has the answers we're looking for


Well, some of them
Dec 11
 
Oh, right -- there's a Season Pass for The Evil Within. The thought of paying $19.99 for three DLC packs when the game itself was just on sale for nearly that price is unappealing, but that's the situation. Part one, The Assi...




The Evil Within PC updated with settings for 60 FPS and letterbox removal


Achievements work with the console enabled
Oct 29
 
Based on everything I've heard about The Evil Within, I genuinely do not know if I'll like the game. It could be one of my favorites this year, but I also wouldn't be shocked if I ended up hating it, all the same. I'll contin...




You're gonna lose your head over this The Evil Within glitch


Lost his head, but kept his cool
Oct 20
 
"This is insane," are some pretty appropriate famous last words, especially when you're inside a carnival of horrors. That should've been the case for this player, but he took a lickin' and kept on tickin'. That's perseverance at its finest. That thing was just weighing him down, anyway.




Review: The Evil Within


I'd prefer a little more evil
Oct 15
 
I grew up happily playing Shinji Mikami's games, and he's probably one of the most influential directors/producers that ever lived. I remember the first time I played Resident Evil, the day I bought Devil May Cry from EB Game...




Happy The Evil Within Day, you bloody goblins


I say that lovingly
Oct 14
 
Well, it's finally here -- the day when The Evil Within is upon us at last, and we get to see how this thing turned out. Not us, mind you; Bethesda wasn't so quick to forward us a copy for review. But, I can assure you ...




Nope, nope, nope! Go away smiley-masked dudes in The Evil Within


Not keen on most of the others either
Oct 06
 
The first 30 seconds of this new The Evil Within trailer declares that the game's enemies are "demented, vicious, and deadly." Most of them look all three parts, but the ones with the smiley-face masks have really locke...




The Evil Within's minimum requirements on PC aren't a whole lot better


Still seems high
Oct 03
 
Last week, Bethesda shed some light on what it considered the recommended requirements to be to play The Evil Within on PC. After some chatter from the Internet about them being ridiculously high, Bethesda clarified by p...




These limited edition The Evil Within PS4s don't look very scary


Especially the white one
Oct 01
 
Oooh, a building outline! Terrifying! You'll get a scary-ass building etched onto your PS4 if you're nabbing a Japanese Psycho Break (The Evil Within here in the west) limited edition release. It comes in Jet Black or Glacier...




The Evil Within has gone gold so let us hack up some bodies


New trailer
Sep 29
 
I'm good and ready to jump into The Evil Within. So ready. The game has gone gold across all platforms, says Bethesda. That means that we're on track for the October 14 release of Shinji Mikami's latest survival horror, brin...




Make sure to set aside a whole lot of hard drive space for The Evil Within


50 GB on PC, 40 GB on consoles
Sep 25
 
The Evil Within players might experience something slightly terrifying before ever booting up the game -- the amount of hard drive space that Shinji Mikami's latest creation takes up. Bethesda just released the system re...




Watch Sebastian stumble around a lot in this Evil Within trailer out of TGS 2014


Lots of stumbling
Sep 17
 
We're marching ever closer to the release of The Evil Within, which is headed to a retailer near you October 14. Bethesda's latest horror IP is shown off in the latest trailer here, straight out of TGS 2014. If you've been t...




Try not to think about cantaloupe while playing The Evil Within


Whoa, juicy!
Sep 10
 
I get such a kick out of seeing how things are made, especially when the people making said things are having a blast. This behind-the-scenes footage for The Evil Within is exactly what I'm talking about. We're given a glimp...




Rejoice, Europeans as you get to experience The Evil Within early


EU release date moved up to October 14
Sep 03
 
As someone living in the UK, it's super frustrating to see notifications pop up on a console or Steam showing my North American friends playing new releases when I usually have to wait a few more days to get my hands on the s...




The Evil Within rocks some recognizable voice talent in this new trailer


Rorschach is telling you to buy this game
Aug 26
 
Ever wanted Watchmen's Jackie Earle Haley to taunt you? Now you can with Haley lending his voice as The Evil Within's main antagonist, Ruvik. But he's not the only recognizable celebrity to have climbed aboard The Evil Withi...




There's plenty of death in this hour-long The Evil Within video


Chapter nine
Aug 18
 
Based on this hour-long play session of The Evil Within, I'm not expecting to be particularly scared by the game, but I am expecting to die quite a few times. Given its limited checkpoints, the fear of failure and having to ...

Three add-ons
Aug 13

Setting children on fire will get you an M rating, apparently


The Overly Sensitive Ratings Board is at it again
Aug 11
 
To the surprise of absolutely no one, the ESRB has given Tango Gameworks' upcoming survival horror title The Evil Within a Mature rating. Content descriptors include Blood, Gore, Intense Violence, and Strong Languag...




Which of these alternate The Evil Within covers do you like best?


Tough call
Jul 30
 
I tend to prefer alternate game cover art over the "real" thing and The Evil Within is no exception. Publisher Bethesda has three covers for us to vote on and whichever piece wins will be used on the inside sleeve for the lau...




The Evil Within jump starts the scares a week earlier than planned


October 14 is the new release date
Jul 17
 
If indecision frightens you, then there's plenty to be scared of when it comes to The Evil Within. Originally slated for an August release, Bethesda pushed it back to October 21. Now that we're a bit closer to that window, th...




Evil Within CENSORED in Japan, Gore Mode DLC unlocks Western version


The evil contained within slightly less evil than anticipated
Jul 08
 
So Japan gets the ability to cattle prod moaning, ass-up anime girls and the rest of the world doesn't (quite). Meanwhile, we get a gross out Evil Within, while in Japan it has been edited down. I assume the same people mad a...




Oh, the horror! The Evil Within delayed two months


Expected around Halloween
May 27
 
The Evil Within is staying hidden in the shadows a little bit longer than anticipated. However, there aren't any surprise jump scares here; we know exactly when to expect it. Originally slated for a August 26 release, Be...




The Evil Within seems like it forgot the 'horror' in 'pure survival horror'


How disappointing
May 27
 
All too often, survival horror titles perform poorly in some areas, but it's somehow acceptable because that's the trade-off for being survival horror. If the experience is tense and scary, it seems like everything else is fo...




The Evil Within is totally disrespectful to barbed wire, you guys


The video's parodical, but what if people were actually offended?
Apr 16
 
The Evil Within looks like it has the potential to make me giggle with devilish glee, so I really hope it doesn't disappoint. Unfortunately, I have to take issue with its negative portrayal of barbed wire. Luckily, The Onion...




The Evil Within isn't looking very evil so far


Impressions from PAX East
Apr 11
 
A behind-closed-doors play session for upcoming survival horror game The Evil Within wasn't as evil as I hoped it would be. I still have high hopes for the next game from Resident Evil vet Shinji Mikami and his new ...




Yep, The Evil Within is going to be one super creepy game alright


That guy has a safe on his head!
Apr 09
 
Oh The Evil Within, how I can't wait for you to scare the every living daylights out of me. Shinji Mikami's past games were my first tastes of the survival horror genre, and I'm quite looking forward to see what he does with...

August 29 in Europe
Feb 14
 
The final release date for Tango Gameworks/Shinji Mikami's survival horror game The Evil Within has been announced. North America will see its release on August 26 of this year, and Europe will follow on August 29. This game ...




Mikami: It's become harder to make players afraid


Designer talks instilling terror in The Evil Within
Dec 09
 
I've got high hopes for Tango Gameworks' The Evil Within. It's the return of Shinji Mikami and, hopefully, big-budget survival horror. Games like Outlast have scared us silly, but it's also possible to point to series like De...




This screenshot from The Evil Within is a bad idea


A head-on fight? Sure, why not?
Oct 23
 
Did you know that this guy's name is Boxman? I wasn't aware until today. He's been featured prominently in Bethesda's promotion of The Evil Within so far, which has me wondering if the intent is for him to become the title's ...




12 minutes of pure horror with The Evil Within


A look at the first act of the game
Sep 27
 
The Evil Within is going to be hopefully a return to the classic survival horror games we grew up with. That was my thoughts when I first saw the opening act to the game prior to E3 this year.  Now you can see what Isaw...




The Evil Within trailer sets stage for a nightmarish tale


Resident Evil creator to brandish latest horror adventure at TGS
Sep 17
 
Survival horror has certainly seen better days. A show of its former self, the genre is at a crossroads as its marquee franchises search for an identity in a new age. The market is ripe for exploitation and it looks like&nbs...




Check out this brutal The Evil Within gameplay


Bethesda brings horror back to the mainstream
Jun 13
 
God, I'm looking forward to The Evil Within. Shinji Mikami, back doing horror, and backed by one of the few publishers with enough balls left to not stick cravenly to focus-tested sludge. Couldn't be happier with that. Unpre...




A return to true survival horror with The Evil Within


Resident Evil 4, Silent Hill, & Saw all blended together into a gory cocktail
May 28
 
A return to true survival horror. That's what Shinji Mikami, father of Resident Evil, and his new studio, Tango Gameworks, aims to do with The Evil Within. I saw the game in action at an E3 pre-show recently, and they've cert...




Mikami wants to bring back horror focus for Evil Within


Survival horror has moved into an action focus, says director
May 02
 
Few game genres bring about the kind of debate over terminology that horror does. Or maybe it only feels that way because it's the one I can't turn away from when the insults start flying. It took no time at all for folks to ...




Horrific The Evil Within screenshots show promise


Keeping expectations in check, or at least attempting to
Apr 24
 
Even without Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikami's name so prominently attached to The Evil Within, I like to believe that I'd still be this eager to see more of the upcoming PC, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and next-ge...

Apr 19
 
Bethesda has just announced a brand new survival horror from the Resident Evil overlord, Shinji Mikami. Said to be his final game, Mikami's new title is The Evil Within, a game that promises to be a true survival horror expe...
