The Evil Within pre-order details emerge; video shows terrified playtesters
Remember those cheesy trailers for movies like "The Blair Witch Project" or "Paranormal Activity" where they would show audience members screaming in terror?
Well, Bethesda has released a trailer just like that for The Evil Within, showing frightened (and/or amused) playtesters, as well as a few seconds of new gameplay footage:
All snark aside, the game has a good chance of being genuinely creepy. It was designed by Shinji Mikami, creator of the Resident Evil series, and is being developed by his company Tango Gameworks.
Bethesda also announced that players who pre-order the game will get the Fighting Chance Pack, which will include the following:
-Medical Kit – A vital health enhancement to enable Sebastian to fight on.
-Green Gel – Used to upgrade Sebastian’s attributes.
-Double Barrel Shotgun and Three Shells – A larger and more formidable shotgun than the regular shotgun, it’s useful for tight situations with multiple encroaching enemies.
-An Incendiary Agony Bolt – Capable of showering nearby enemies with damaging fire sparks.
-A Poison Agony Bolt – Will draw enemies towards it and poison them, allowing Sebastian time for a quick escape.
So basically, pre-ordering the game will make it just a teensy bit easier.
The Evil Within launches in North America on October 21, in Australia on October 23, and in Europe on October 24.
