Shinji Mikami, creator of Resident Evil, returns to his survival horror roots with The Evil Within.
Scare yourself witless with Joshua Vanderwall's full preview here:
The plot seems fairly straightforward at the start, with the protagonist being a detective investigating a number of particularly gruesome murders at Beacon Mental Hospital. He arrives to find several abandoned police cars outside, with no sign of a struggle outside the building, and no word as to what might have happened within. Upon entering the hospital, he sees the first signs of what is to come, with bodies splayed out in pools of blood. Investigating further, he locates the security feed, which reveals the killer to be some kind of apparition with a particular fondness for ethereal knives. After being beset by the killer, he wakes up and makes his daring escape from the hospital, only to discover that the outside world has literally crumbled in his absence. Shattered streets and ruined buildings are all you see from the doorway. What this means or how it happened is anybody's guess, but I presume that we'll learn more about the happenings as the story unfolds.
