As some fans have already discovered prior to this year’s Bethesda Showcase at E3, Tango Gameworks founder Shinji Mikami via Twitter shared that he finished rehearsal for some sort of upcoming presentation, leaving an heavy implication towards the then-approaching event. Fans unsure of what the title might be look towards the possibility of a new installment of The Evil Within or even a DLC announcement for the 2017 sequel.
Now the press conference has happened and revealed that the title in fact was not related to the studio’s debuting series, but a new IP entirely, titled GhostWire: Tokyo. Revealed through a two-minute long reveal cinematic showcases highly detailed locations and introduces a new take on the survival horror genre.
If you can’t already tell from both the name and the evident trailer, the Tokyo is hit with a mass loss in population for unknown reasons and you are left to discover the source for the cause of this. Spiritual abilities are said to be one of the main mechanics that players will be equipped with to combat the haunting entities that take over the streets of the abandoned city.
Deprived from the game’s description, it reads that players “will face down the occult, unravel conspiracy theories and experience urban legends like never before.”
GhostWire: Tokyo has no set release date or listed consoles following the announcement
