There’s nothing more horrifying than a blood-covered, axe-wielding butcher with a box on his head named Boxman. He’s the star of the gameplay trailer for The Evil Within, the new survival-horror by Shinji Mikami (Resident Evil) and Bethesda Softworks, and published by Tango Gameworks.
Sebastian Castellanos is a detective. He goes to a crime scene, crazy things happen, and he ends up in a strange world where more crazy things happen including Boxman. Some of the other eye candies in the trailer include a dead goat, a straight-jacket ghost, a river of blood, mannequin man, a big arm, zombies, mad “live-dissection” scientist, water beast, asian female spider beast, and hoodie ghost. There’s also some sweet chainsaw artistry as well as barbed-wire-on-face action. Boxman, though, is the real beauty of the game and rivals Pinhead as the ultimate show stopper.
The game’s got everything you want in a survival-horror and it’s out on August 26 for Windows, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
