The trailer depicts pretty terrifying scenes of children burning, people being stabbed and numerous gross humanoid creatures. Unfortunately the trailer didn't depict anything that looked like gameplay, but it looks pretty cool nonetheless.

The next horrific installation of The Evil Within is set for release on Friday, Oct. 13, 2017.
