The Evil Within 2 – watch 20 minutes of gory gameplay


Game Informer has posted a 20-minute The Evil Within 2 gameplay video for your consumption.

The footage showcases plenty of combat in the upcoming blood-drenched sequel, as protagonist Sebastian Castellanos explores a series of suitably creepy locations while capping legions of grotesque creatures. Just another day for an ex-cop, then, 

Check out The Evil Within 2 gameplay below.

The Evil Within 2 is scheduled for release on PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One on October 13, 2017. The game takes place three years following the events of the original game, and sees Castellanos expelled from the police force after his superiors fail to buy his story.

The ex-cop spends most of his days in a drunken haze, until his former partner, Juli Kidman, brings news that Seb’s daughter, Lily, is in fact still alive despite being previously thought dead.

The Evil Within 2 builds upon the template of the original by offering larger environments to explore, which reward you with side activities that cough up valuable resources. There’s also a more comprehensive customisation system in place, allowing you to craft items and upgrade Seb’s abilities. 

Developed by Tango Gameworks, The Evil Within series is the brainchild of Shinji Mikami, who is perhaps best known for creating the Resident Evil franchise. 

The game shares many similarities with its zombie-blasting cousin, including a strong emphasis on survival horror, with players forced to conserve ammunition and pick their fights while solving a variety of brain-teasing puzzles.
