The Evil Within is shaping up to be one of the best survival horror games released this year and based on the trailers we’ve seen so far, it certainly looks scary. Just how scary though? Will it be as terrifying as the game Outlast or will it be more action oriented like Dead Space?
Well, it sounds like pure horror is what the game is going for given a recent post on PSU.com. On Sony’s latest blogcast, SCEA Social Media Specialist Ryan Clements reported that one of his co-workers was so scared by the game he had to turn it off. “Here’s some early buzz from a fellow co-worker. The game was so terrifying he had to turn it off after 20 minutes!” Said Ryan.
Obviously this guy may not be a horror veteran, but the fact the game forced an adult to switch off the game is certainly a promising sign.
