Today Bethesda officially announced The Evil Within, a new survival horror IP from from legendary developer Shinji Mikami (Resident Evil, Resident Evil 4) and Bethesda's Japanese studio, Tango Gameworks. But while we'll have to wait until Monday for IGN's exclusive coverage of the game to go live, it seems a few story details and key gameplay features have been unearthed a little early.
The first is that The Evil Within begins when Detective Sebastian and his partner rush to a scene of a "gruesome mass murder," and discover a "mysterious, powerful force" waiting for them. Sebastian is soon attacked and loses consciousness, only to awake in a world filled with monsters. Sebastian must "face his fears in order to survive on a journey to discover what lies in the shadows of that mysterious force."
