The lights are on
October continues to fill up, as another title slips into what is becoming the busiest month in recent memory. The Evil Within, which received a tepid response from a PAX East demo, is moving from August until October.
According to Bethesda, game director Shinji Mikami and Tango Gameworks asked for more time to refine the title. Bethesda has granted the request, and the title will arrive on October 21 here for Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PC.
Bethesda also announced a pre-order bonus, which includes a number of in-game items, including a medical kit, a double barrel shotgun, an incendiary agony bolt, a poison agony bolt, and green gel.

Of course its gonna be October. lol
Damn, I really want this game but with that month... scary.
Awful decision, just awful. What genius decided to delay this into a month that features Inquisition, Arkham Knight, Shadow of Mordor and Alien: Isolation. Just plain dumb!
Polish is always great, idk about the PAX stuff but I thought the long gameplay trailer they released a while back looked phenomenal. October is technically the perfect month for such a title BUT with so many high profile titles coming out in that month there's really no way it doesn't get hurt in sales or recognition.
Wow, October is packed with huge releases! My bank account is crying.
I don't know, though. This game might take a hit in sales with it competing against such big titles like DA:I, Arkham Knight, and Shadow of Mordor. It's definitely not my first pick to play.
Ahh god gamn it. Summer is always the worst. I was really banking on this one. Oh well, hopefully it'll be a better game with the extra couple of months.
This really pisses me off and is bull *** lol
If they're just looking to polish this game up a bit, they should try to release it at the end of Sept. With all the competition going on in Oct., I don't see this game moving off the shelves a lot.
Too many games competing for our dollars in October. This is going to cause a problem for some of the lesser known titles like this one.
Sweet, it fits an October release anyway and gives me more time to save up for it.
aw darn it.
