The Evil Within preview: Ruvik's cube of death

The Evil Within preview: Ruvik's cube of death

Survival horror has seen somewhat of a renaissance in the last few years, with games like Outlast and the Amnesia series reminding players what it's like to be at the mercy of something otherwordly without the aid of a giant gun with a bottomless barrel. But if anyone deserves to lead the new parade of survival horror games, it's Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikami. He's looking to do so with a blood-curdling scream in his upcoming scare-fest, The Evil Within, though it's going to come later than expected. Originally set to release on August 26, the game has been pushed back to October 21 to bring it closer to Halloween.

Shacknews bravely stepped into the dark to try out Bethesda and Tango Gameworks' survival horror romp. The results may have resulted in the purchase of several night lights, but they also proved promising for fans of the genre.

How Wolfenstein: The New Order will change your preconceptions

How Wolfenstein: The New Order will change your preconceptions

B.J. Blaskowicz will make his return this month in Wolfenstein: The New Order. Although many may have brushed the game off last year as just another mindless shooter, the game has come a long way. The hands-on demo shown at PAX East was impressive enough for doubters to reconsider their position on Wolfenstein.

At its heart, Wolfenstein has always been about straightforward, gory, and fast action. Wolfenstein 3D birthed the first-person shooter genre and put Id Software on the map. Players take the role of B.J. Blaskowicz, who launches a one-man battle against an army of Nazis. There were some efforts to bring the series back into the spotlight, including a supernaturally themed game developed by Raven Software and published by Activision in 2009. However, none managed to make Wolfenstein relevant again.

Bethesda's official FAQ mentioned a six month delay, which Bethesda later clarified in a statement to Shacknews.

While it has become clear that our planned June release of the console versions isn't going to be possible, we have made great progress, we have concluded that we'll need about six more months to ensure we deliver the experience our fans expect and deserve."

Wolfenstein: The New Order trailer introduces Nazis & the Resistance

Wolfenstein: The New Order trailer introduces Nazis & the Resistance

If Wolfenstein: The New Order is meant to be campy, this new trailer does a good job of hiding it. "Nowhere to Hide" introduces players to the story of the game: an alternate history where Nazis have taken control of the world, and a resistance movement attempts to fight back.

In The New Order, players will control BJ Blazkowicz and go against General Deathshed in a new globe-trotting adventure. We thought it "standard FPS fare" when we last tried it, but at least a pre-order will guarantee a slot in the DOOM beta.

The Elder Scrolls Online would be a 'lesser game' if free-to-play, Bethesda argues

The Elder Scrolls Online would be a 'lesser game' if free-to-play, Bethesda argues

The Elder Scrolls Online is the rare MMO that will launch with a subscription fee. Surely, the company would attract a larger audience by going free-to-play? Bethesda VP Pete Hines defended his company's decision, saying that restricting the audience was intentional. "We're not trying to make a game that everybody who plays games will automatically buy," he said. "It is a certain kind of game. There's no shooter elements. There's no aliens."
