Shinji Mikami’s new horror game, which was formally under the the working title of Zwei, is called The Evil Within and is coming to PS3, Xbox 360, PC and next generation consoles in 2014, publisher Bethesda has announced.

The main character is Sebastian, a detective who witnesses the killing of other police officers and in the aftermath ends up unconscious, waking up only to discover that he’s in a world where lots of monsters are trying to kill him, most likely in some very horrible ways.

Apparently the game will be a return to pure survival horror, with limited resources, which could mean, there’s less in the way of fighting, in the way that horror games used to be and who better to revive this design than the Resident Evil creator himself, Shinji Mikami?

Along the way you’ll come across traps, of which you must always be aware of, though you’re also able to use them against enemies. In Silent Hill like fashion the world is able to warp and distort, though it does so based on your actions in some way.
