During its E3 2017 Press Conference, we learnt that Bethesda Softworks will release a sequel to The Evil Within on October 13th, 2017 for consoles and PC.
The Evil Within 2 will continue the story of Detective Sebastian Castellanos and will take place shortly after the 2014 Shinji Mikami, Tango Gameworks title.
During PlayStation Live with Bethesda Head of PR Pete Hines and John Johanas – Game Designer with Tango Gameworks, we got our first glimpse (albeit a small one) at gameplay for the sequel, with Castellanos pulled back into the story as the Detective bids to save his daughter from Mobius, the evil corporation behind The Evil Within.
From the video and discussion, we learn that the sequel will take place shortly after the original and that many elements of The Evil Within will return such as item management, weapons i.e crossbow, shotgun, pistol along with stealth aspects and sneak kills.
Appropriately, The Evil Within 2 debuts Friday, October 13th, 2017 on Xbox One, PS4 and PC.
