Today Bethesda announced a survival horror game called The Evil Within. The Evil Within, previously known by the codename Zwei, is the first game from Shinji Mikami's Tango Gameworks.

Shinji Mikami is best known as the creator of the Resident Evil series. He founded Tango Gameworks in March 2010 and Bethesda acquired the studio that October. The Evil Within will be Tango's first game.

"We’re incredibly proud to announce The Evil Within,” Mikami told IGN. "My team and I are committed to creating an exciting new franchise, providing fans the perfect blend of horror and action."

Today's announcement was made with a live-action trailer. The trailer, which contains the teaser videos released earlier in the week by Bethesda, depicts an abandoned mental hospital. A man is shown constructing barbed wire at a work desk. The hospital is revealed to be home to many monsters, including a multi-armed woman who emerges from a pool of blood.

The Evil Within is slated for a 2014 release. Bethesda says it's in development for Xbox 360, PS3, and PC. Next-generation consoles are also mentioned but they don't specify which ones.

The first preview of Evil will be published by IGN on Monday at 7am Pacific. They'll tour Tango Gameworks and some impressions of the first demo.
