Shinji Mikami, the man that defined two different eras of survival horror with both Resident Evil and Resident Evil 4, is back and with an all new studio and game. Tango Gameworks will be developing The Evil Within, a return to the high-intensity survival horror of yesteryear. This third-person survival horror title may not be breaking any new ground, but it should at least reinvigorate all those old time-y feelings that drove a decade of survival horror games.

The Evil Within tells the story of Detective Sebastian Castellanos as he encounters a mysterious and powerful supernatural force. Investigating a call for back-up at Beacon Mental Hospital, Castellanos discovers that all of the first officers to report on-scene have disappeared. More than that, a mad-man in a white hood appears to be on the loose. After being knocked out, Castellanos awakens in what can only be considered to be a living nightmare. He doesn't know the half of it...

This game is also known as PsychoBreak in Japan.
