The Evil Within has a tip of the hat to Resident Evil

The EVil Within

Bethesda and Tango Gameworks' new survival horror game comes with a tribute to the original Resident Evil.

The Evil Within launched on PC and across multiple consoles yesterday, and Kotaku have noticed that there's a familiar-looking scene in the game that could be interpreted as a tribute to Resident Evil.

Here's a gif from Kotaku of the scene in question from The Evil Within - the similarity is unquestionable and it's a nice little tribute to the game that spawned so many survival horror titles after it.
