The Halloween season is officially upon us, which means it’s the perfect time to curl up with a game like The Evil Within and enjoy a few evenings of chills, thrills and gore aplenty. Thankfully, the game has now gone gold and we’ve been filled in on the system requirements, so all you’ve got to do now is wait for the Oct. 16 launch date and enjoy a bloody good time.

I don’t know about you folks, but I love to get in a good horror game or two when this time of year rolls around. Thankfully, many developers and publishers are well aware of this type of behavior and tend to time their spooktacular offerings accordingly. Slender just dropped on the PlayStation 4 this week, P.T. is still fresh in my mind from about a month ago and, on the decidedly more family friendly side of things, Costume Quest 2 is nearly upon us.

The big AAA scare-a-thon for 2014 though, is The Evil Within, the brain child of Shinji Mikami, the godfather of Resident Evil. Mikami-san has stated that he wanted to see the horror genre return to its roots, and The Evil Within is a direct result of that ambition. Rather than controlling a beefy war hero, armed to the teeth with grenades and rocket launchers, you’ll take on the role of a good cop in a bad situation, struggling to survive an asylum that has more or less turned into a living hell. You’ll be struggling to survive rather than mowing down enemies with automatic fire, as shown off in the game’s latest trailer.

With release only a few weeks away, Bethesda has now announced that The Evil Within has gone gold, which means it’ll be ready to roll come launch day for the PC, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3. For those of you who don't know, "going gold" means that core development on the game has been completed and that a gold master disc has been sent off to the manufacturer for mass production.

The publisher has also announced the system requirements for the game, letting gamers know what type of machine or space will be necessary to get the scares a-flowing. Recommended PC specs include 4 GBs or RAM, 50 GB of hard drive space and a GeForce GTX 670 or equivalent with 4GBs of VRAM.

Those of you gaming on last gen machines have little to worry about, as The Evil Within will only take up about 7 GB of your hard drive space. PS4 and Xbox One gamers, though, will need to allocate about 40 GB of space to run the game. Yeah, that’s a pretty meaty download size.
