If you're eagerly anticipating The Evil Within, Shinji Mikami's return to the survival horror genre he helped invent, then it turns out you will need to anticipate it eagerly for a little while longer than previously expected.

That's because publisher Bethesda has just revealed that the game is now due out on 24th October in Europe and 21st October in the US, representing a delay of around two months. It's still due out on PS4, Xbox One, PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.

The Evil Within is the first release from Mikami's Tango Gameworks studio. Dan Whitehead recently got the chance to play it and you can read his Evil Within hands-on preview elsewhere on the site today, where he reports familiar sensations, but not unpleasant ones. Well, I suppose it's all unpleasant because it's survival horror, but you know what I mean, or at least you will do in October.

In the meantime, Bethesda has also released a new trailer, which also mentions The Fighting Chance Pack, a pre-order incentive that will give you a medical kit, green gel to upgrade the main character's attributes, a double-barrel shotgun with three shells, an incendiary agony bolt and a poison agony bolt, all of which should help you escape danger at least once or twice.
