It’s never too early for Halloween, right? With October bearing down on us and holding the title as “scariest month of the year” Bethesda and Tango Gameworks have pulled the curtain back a bit more on their upcoming horror game, The Evil Within. If you’re wondering what kind of nightmares are awaiting you in Shinji Mikami’s new game, then there’s nothing better for you than this 11 minutes of straight gameplay video.

Unsure of what exactly happened and why, he takes off to explore this place of nightmare and figure out just what is going on all while avoiding that menacing looking butcher. As expected, his day eventually gets worse as he’s chased throughout this place by a maniac with a chainsaw. Like another recently released horror game, he’s forced to take shelter within a locker. You’d think these guys would think to look in containers.
