The Evil Within 2 gameplay video introduces the frightening "Guardian"

the evil within 2 guardian

While we posted a leaked side-mission yesterday for The Evil Within 2 that might have been scary, it’s got nothing in this new five-minute The Evil Within 2 gameplay video released by Bethesda today. In the trailer, which you can watch below, an enemy known as the "Guardian" is introduced, and she’s one scary mofo. 

Check out Bethesda’s official description for this giggling monstrosity and I’d advice you to watch the footage with the lights on.

A breathless chase down a hallway. Echoing laughter and the whirring of a sawblade dogging your steps. If you’re brave enough to look behind you, you’ll see the maelstrom of body parts that make up the monstrous creature known as Guardian. Aside from a handful of brief glimpses in trailers, the recent hands-on demo for The Evil Within 2 was our first real up-close-and-personal encounter with Guardian.

It’s like Resident Evil’s Tyrant merged with The Ring movie’s Sadako, and it added a sawblade for a hand just for laughs. Want more frightening monsters from The Evil Within 2? Check out this trailer that focuses on just that.

The Evil Within 2 will bring the scares this October 13 on the PS4, Xbox One and PC.
