The Evil Within Release Bumped Up, Quake Live Coming to Steam
October will see an overload of big game releases, but at least one — The Evil Within — will hit shelves slightly earlier than previously anticipated.
At QuakeCon 2014 today, Bethesda Vice President of Public Relations Pete Hines announced that Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikami’s return to survival horror is getting bumped up a week from its original release date. Expect the title to drop on Oct. 14, he said, as opposed to its previous release date of Oct. 21.
Hines also made a couple of other announcements during the Welcome presentation to kick QuakeCon, including the fact that Quake Live is on its way to Valve’s Steam PC platform. There’s also the usual annual QuakeCon Steam sale, which sees the entire Bethesda catalog getting some big price cuts throughout the weekend. You can own all Bethesda games for $99.99, or grab piecemeal deals, like the Dishonored Game of the Year edition, which is on sale for about $10 today, a cut of 66 percent.
Stay tuned through the weekend for lots more QuakeCon 2014 coverage from our team on the ground — including the big Doom reveal scheduled to happen pretty much as I’m writing this.
