Dog Days of Horror: The Evil Within Gets a Release Date
Special Valentine’s Day shout out to Shinji Mikami. The Resident Evil creator holds a special place in my gaming heart.
That’s why I can’t wait to see Mikami’s return to real survival horror with The Evil Within. And now we know when we’ll get to play it. With a Viney tweet this morning, Bethesda announced The Evil Within’s release date is August 26:

Can’t wait. And while we’re talking The Evil Within, how about that gameplay trailer up top there? The intro arrival of the cops at the crime scene is classic Resident Evil. So much so, I was half expecting to see a Raccoon City sign and the Umbrella logo. It’s as if Mikami is giving us a not-so-subtle nudge and wink, letting us know he’s well aware of how his franchise has gone astray in recent years, and he knows exactly what fans really want from RE-style survival horror.
We’ll find out when The Evil Within arrives on August 26.
