In addition to creating some of The Evil Within’s most terrifying creatures, Ikumi was the creator of “The Real Tango” comics on the dev studios’s homepage. Using the comic as inspiration, she provided us with an amazing print featuring characters from some of Bethesda’s most beloved games. And Pete!
Issue 2 of 4 in Titan Comics’ prequel series for The Evil Within is available online and at your favorite comic store. For a sneak peak and a look at back at the first issue, check out the imgur embed below…
From everyone at Bethesda, we wish you a happy and safe Halloween weekend. While you’re haunting about, feel free to share your best Halloween creations and costumes using the hashtag #BethesdART or emailing us at email@example.com.
Tomorrow we’re getting getting into the spirit (and perhaps costumes, too) for a Halloween edition of Bethesda Twitchworks — with plenty of tricks and treats (read: cool swag) to give away!
To kick off our Halloween party, we’ll start by mingling with vampires and werewolves in Skyrim’s first add-on, Dawnguard. Moving on from that, we will hobnob in Dishonored with the most prestigious resident of Dunwall at the annual masquerade party held at the Boyle Mansion.
We descend from elegance to grotesque as we check on our favorite ghouls residing in the Capital Wasteland’s Dunwich Building & and the blood-covered bosses from The Evil Within.
Tune in for our spooktacular Halloween feature this Friday (10/31) at 4pm EDT on Twitch.TV/Bethesda.
In time for Halloween, you can scream on Steam – free (!!) – through three chapters of The Evil Within!
Starting October 30th, you’ll be able to enjoy the first three chapters for free. If you choose to purchase the game after the first three chapters, you’ll be able to continue your save progress, and as an added bonus, we’ll throw more evil your way with a free copy of Call of Cthulhu. Finally, and for a limited time only, we are offering 50% off The Evil Within’s Season Pass!
Already purchased The Evil Within and its Season Pass? Fear not. Those that already have the main game will have Cthulhu added to your library, and purchasers of the Season Pass will receive special offers on other Bethesda titles.
In time for Halloween, our very own Lindsay Westcott put together some very evil jack-o-lantern templates. Below you can print out any of our designs. If you’d like to share your carving skills with these templates or your own Bethesda creations, tweet us with the hashtag #BethesdART or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you fire up The Evil Within today, you will notice the game will patch automatically with a new game update.
With the update, players with high-end PCs will be able to go in to their settings and toggle between running the game with a 30 FPS cap or a 60 FPS cap. Additionally, players will be able to disable the letterbox “black bars” in the game settings — allowing you to maximize your screen’s real estate.
