No, it’s not Fallout 4. And it’s not even a new Wolfenstein. It looks like Bethesda’s silly vine videos have been teasing the new “pure” survival Horror from Shinji Mikami, the guy who created Resident Evil.

“As a master of the ‘survival horror’ genre, Shinji Mikami is committed to making a game that is the realization of pure survival horror, an experience which he defines as one that pushes the limits of fear and exhilaration. He and his team at Tango are committed to attaining this vision,” says the site’s PR blurb.

I am also the emperor of the backend
