New update for The Evil Within lets you play without letterboxing

A new update for Tango Gameworks' The Evil Within lets players see more of The Evil Within. Publisher Bethesda Softworks announced today that a new update for the game will let console players remove The Evil Within's letterbox effect and play the survival horror game in fullscreen.

Bethesda says the option to remove the cinematic letterbox was added based on community feedback. PC gamers have had that option since the game launched last October.

Today's update also tweaks the game's casual difficulty setting. Bethesda says it's been "rebalanced to be more forgiving to players with increased ammo amounts and adjustments to the game's health bar."

The update is available for the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Windows PC, Xbox 360 and Xbox One versions of the game.
