As if Boxman alone won’t be enough to sell The Evil Within, Bethesda released a new trailer showcasing some cool survival horror action. And this is true survival horror, and not the fake survival horror. The difference? Bullets. Or lack thereof. True survival horrors don’t have a lot of bullets. Ever see The Walking Dead? Okay, there were a few episodes with M-16s and even a tank, but for the most part, it’s impaling the undead in the brain with a crowbar or slashing off heads with a katana. Or better yet, a crossbow, the ultimate apocalyptic and “green” weapon. There’s also a ton of hiding behind walls and building traps and things. That’s survival horror, and The Evil Within, based on the trailer, has all that.
Oh, and it still has Boxman. How do you impale a guy in the head if he’s got a box on his head? Good luck surviving that.
The game is out on October 14th and available on Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3 and PC.
