The Evil Within launching early in Europe, Australia’s date unchanged


The Evil Within is scheduled to launch in North America 14 October and was then due to hit stores across Europe and Australia two days later on 16 October.

Bethesda has announced that fans in Europe won’t need to wait those extra couple of days as the release date for the region has been bumped up to match that of North America. Along with Europe; India, the Middle East and South Africa will see the game launch 14 October in both physical and digital forms.

Bethesda pointed out that The Evil Within will still launch 16 October in Australia and New Zealand and 23 October in Japan. Why do we have to wait here in Australia? No idea, but we’re used to it by now right?

The Evil Within will be available for PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One 16 October in Australia and New Zealand and two days earlier in North America and Europe.
