In our new sweepstakes, celebrate The Evil Within’s craziest moments… with a selfie!
Detective Sebastian Castellanos has a knack for getting into close encounters of the scary kind. With that in mind, we’re looking for your best Sebastian “selfie” moment in The Evil Within for our #SebSelfie Sweepstakes. All you need to do to is submit a screenshot featuring the main character, Sebastian, facing the camera in a self-portrait while in game. This can be done by rotating the camera around to face the front of Sebastian any time during gameplay.
Once you’re satisfied with your Sebastian “selfie,” submit your screenshot using the #SebSelfie hashtag on Twitter or Instagram. One lucky winner will receive a prize pack featuring Gaming Head’s exclusive edition statue of “The Keeper”, plus a poster and game (platform of your choice!) signed by The Evil Within’s game director, Shinji Mikami!

Our newest video from the Bethesda Underground
team trip to Tokyo gives a closer look at The Evil Within’s lead concept artist, Ikumi Nakamura.
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!

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!
