Publisher Bethesda has released a new trailer for The Evil Within 2, this time focusing on the tools you’ll have at your disposal to survive. Some glimpses of the story are also there, delving into the past of returning protagonist Sebastian Castellanos.
Plagued by memories of the daughter he couldn’t save and a mystery he could never solve, he begins to lose himself in his past mistakes. Sebastian lives out his nightmares every day, unable to pull himself from his downward spiral. Until an old friend-turned-traitor reenters his life with an offer: Return to the nightmare and save your daughter. The Evil Within 2 gives a broken man the chance to make things right and find the peace he so deserves, but he’ll have to go through hell first.
The Agony Crossbow from the first game looks to make a return, with Sebastien setting up traps to deal with enemies. Stealth also seems to play a part; the first title featured sneaking elements in the early-game, but very quickly pivoted away from them as the story progressed.
The Evil Within 2 is set to release on October 13 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
