This October Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikami will be releasing what will hopefully be a return to a classic survival horror style that had been missing from Resident Evil for some time now. Regardless of quality, we now know that the game will pack a pretty solid running time. According to Bethesda Europe PR manager Alistair Hatch, it’s not a game that can be beat in a couple of days.
Hatch said the following on twitter:
“We expect The Evil Within campaign to last 15-20 hours depending on play style and difficulty mode.”
To make matters even better, they also revealed that there will be 3 story-based DLC packs after launch, with one of them focusing on The Keeper and the other 2 on the protagonist’s partner Julie Kidman. Along with these packs you will get new maps, enemies and horrifying scenarios to get sucked up in.
The Evil Within is being developed by Tango Gameworks and published by Bethesda Softworks for the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and PC. The game is set to be released on October 17th, 2014.
