All those teases that Bethesda has been dishing out over the past three days is leading up to the unveiling of the first game from Tango Gameworks, the studio run by Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikami.

The survival horror game, codenamed Zwei, will be have a teaser trailer revealed tomorrow on IGN. When first announced almost a year ago, Mikami said: "A true 'survival horror' game is one in which the player confronts and overcomes fear. I've found my focus and once again I'm striving for pure survival horror. I am being very hands-on in the development of this game to ensure that the quality is there. Rest assured."

Mikami has said that the game will likely be on consoles. We'll know more tomorrow. Those of you in Chatty that guessed Zwei get a cookie.

      Whew...was scared there for a second. If they were only on SD consoles I would have been worried.

      YES!!!

      this means that Fallout 4 or TES VI is still a possibility!

        I'm betting we get the official Durango announcement at E3, followed by the announcement that Fallout 4 will be a launch title on next gen consoles.

      I'm interested in this. I hope they don't make the combat mechanics suck (assuming they exist at all) as a crutch to create tension.

        I'd be more interested in a survival horror that doesn't is completely absent of combat mechanics. That's not to say just because you don't fight back doesn't mean you are defenseless. I'd like one where evasion and stealth is the emphasis of control.

          I can see why you'd say they're survival horror, but my idea of survival horror is something that puts atmosphere first. While the souls games obviously had atmosphere, I felt like combat and dangerous environments, and the challenges derived from those, were the primary focus.
