While investigating the scene of a gruesome mass murder, Detective Sebastian Castellanos and his partners encounter a mysterious and powerful force. After seeing the slaughter of fellow officers, Sebastian is ambushed and knocked unconscious. When he awakens, he finds himself in a deranged world where hideous creatures wander among the dead.

Facing unimaginable terror, and fighting for survival, Sebastian embarks on a frightening journey to unravel what’s behind this evil force.

The Evil Within

Developed by Shinji Mikami – creator of the seminal Resident Evil series – and the talented team at Tango Gameworks, The Evil Within embodies the meaning of pure survival horror. Experience a disturbing reality as you try to break free from warped machinations that could only exist in the most horrifying worlds. Face twisted creatures and experience true terror, all heightened by cutting edge lighting and animation made possible by a customised version of the id Tech 5 engine.

Includes a plugin for The Evil Within, gets rid of the FOV lock and gets rid of black bars. You can manually remove the 30/60 FPS lock. See description...

The most disappointing horror game to come since Resident Evil 5 or 6 if you guys even played that atrocity. Of all the things that it could have done wrong, the gameplay, the graphics, the controls, it can't even get horror right. Its bland action-horror with some 'hide and sneak confined areas' that basically just a matter of hiding in a locker and waiting for the enemy to move thing (that it simply copy pasted from Outlast without giving us the true survival horror experience of being able to use sneaking and or running/hiding anywhere), before just having entire levels of blasting away enemies with really clunky controls.
