Bethesda has announced that The Evil Within has been delayed. Originally scheduled for an August 2014 release, the game will now launch on October 21st in North America, October 23 in Australia and New Zealand followed by October 24 in European territories. The reason for the two month delay is supposedly so that developer Tango Gameworks can have more time to further polish and refine the game.
The Evil Within is an upcoming Horror game from designer Shinji Mikami, the famed creator of the Resident Evil video games series, and is being published by Bethesda. Many may remember the original reveal that happened, for those who don’t – check it out on RGNTV2. The game was immediately praised for its potential to bring back the Survival Horror feel from the days of the genre’s inception, largely due to Shinji Mikami’s presence on the team behind the game. The Evil Within stars Sebastian Castellanos.
Leading up to the first official announcement, Bethesda launched a viral ad campaign using short snippets through newly popular web service Vine. For a while, nobody knew what these meant, and it caused a great deal of fascination as well as (to Bethesda’s frustration somewhat) Fallout 4 rumors. For some reason that seemed to upset the major video game publisher who has been trying to get the public’s attention off of Fallout and onto Elder Scrolls ever since – to varying degrees of success.
Tango Gameworks are the crew developing The Evil Within which releases for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One this October (as mentioned above). This title will also be released on computer and the last-gen game platforms Sony PS3 and Xbox 360. Working off of an id Tech 5 engine (with some custom tweaking), Tango Gameworks has been a part of Bethesda since their parent company Zenimax Media acquired them back in late 2010. Team members include solid major industry veterans who come from such companies as Platinum Games, Capcom, Suda 51’s crew (Grasshopper Manufacture) to name a few.
This week Bethesda and Tango Gameworks have released the following set of new screenshots for The Evil Within as well as a 1080P HD “Reactions” Trailer.

The following collection of Screenshots and Concept Art below were released for the game and include a depiction of the Fighting Chance Pack that grants players, well what else? A fighting chance against the crazed undead seen in these images. Previously, there were also a bunch of leaked screenshots and gameplay clips but those have been mostly removed as Bethesda and Tango Gameworks urge gamers to hold off a little bit longer so that the final build version of the game can be shown rather than those of lower quality which were leaked ahead of schedule.
