Bethesda has released a brand-new gameplay trailer for Tango Gameworks' The Evil Within for Xbox One, PS4, Xbox 360, PS3 and PC.

The trailer offers a new look at the cross-generation horror game and gives fans a glimpse of villain character Boxman – he has a box on, or for, his head.

Developed by Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikami, The Evil Within sees Detective Sebastian Castellanos encounter a mysterious and powerful force whilst investigating the scene of a gruesome mass murder. After an ambush he is left unconscious and awakes in a deranged world full of the stuff of nightmares.

The Evil Within launches August 29.

Looking forward to this. It may not be as pretty as it would be if it started development a year later but it seems to have all the charm that makes Mikami horror games so brilliant.

I really wanted to love Amnesia and Outlast but the truth is I ended up just feeling bored. Too little variation just led to me growing bored after you get used to how the scares roll out (run, hide, run, puzzle, hide, run etc). Still thought they were great mind, but I'm glad alternative ways for horror gaming still exist.

Wish this was just latest generation, it looks more like a last gen game and a bit shabby round the edges. Doesn't mean it can't be great though. I'd really really love a great survival horror title to come along and i see no reason why it can't be this.

Hopefully this will bring back horror games where you can defend yourself. As good as amnesia and outlast is you just get frustrated after a couple of hours of just running from monsters.
