The Evil Within out 29th August in Europe

Shinji Mikami scared. 

Gruesome survival-horror game The Evil Within will be released 29th August in Europe and 26th August in the US, publisher Bethesda has announced.

That's on PS4 and Xbox One as well as PS3 and Xbox 360. Oh, and PC.

The Evil Within is the long-awaited new game by Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikami. It'll be his Tango Gameworks studio's debut game.

The Evil Within follows a detective rushed to investigate a mass murder, where strange forces are at work. But he's bopped over the head and loses consciousness, and when he comes to, he's in all kinds of bother.

I know - what an eerie description. Perhaps I should write the box blurb.
