Make Every Last Bullet Count With The Evil Within's Latest Trailer; Ammo Is Scarce, You Will Have To Improvise If You Want To Survive This Nightmare [TRAILER]
Survival horror is not meant to play nice with you. Even those two words, 'survival' and 'horror' conjure up nightmarish images where twisted, evil things pursue you and there's little safety to be done. The Evil Within, the latest from survival horror grandmaster Shinji Mikami, is certainly looking to up the ante within the stale genre.
Bullets are a luxury in the survival horror genre, hoarded like diamonds and unopened original Star Wars action figures. The Evil Within wants you to make sure that each and every bullet counts. You probably won't be finding much ammo in the game, and the ones you do find, well, that might not help out entirely, except to give you some false sense of security. The latest trailer 'Every Last Bullet' explains in detail how a gun can only go so far; the rest is up to you.
The limited resources are the point of a game like The Evil Within. If you had access to unlimited ammunition at all times, the horror is significantly decreased. Most anything will stop moving if you toss enough lead into it, after all.
The trailer, done with epic trailer voice, emphasizes the need to improvise; use the shadows, be quiet and sometimes, just avoid confronting the Haunted, the zombie-like enemies that populate the world. If video games, especially the Resident Evil titles, have taught us anything is that you save your ammo for the boss fights. The little guys get the knife, which never runs out of bullets.
The Evil Within creeps onto Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS4, PS3 and PC on October 14. Watch Every Last Bullet, and be sure to make it count!
