    Default Evil Within 2

    I'm so for this. Helmed by the creator of Resident Evil, The Evil Within is one of my favorite horror games of the modern era. Survival-based and with plenty of atmospheric and psychological horror.

    How would you say it compared to RE7? (I haven't played either game, but was quite underwhelmed by RE7's demo.)

    Cool trailer, aside from the music. Do we know that Mikami's directing it?

    I can't wait for this. I adore the original.

    It's basically RE4, but with the limited health and ammo of the earlier RE games. It does lack some of the polish of those games, and there's design decisions which just don't work (the 2 second stamina meter springs to mind), but it's a great game all the same, especially if you're a fan of classic Resident Evil games.

    Shinji Mikami is executive producer, but the director hasn't been announced yet.

    GAME DESCRIPTION:

    From mastermind Shinji Mikami and the talented team at Tango Gameworks, The Evil Within 2 takes the acclaimed franchise to a new level with its unique blend of psychological thrills and true survival horror.

    You are Detective Sebastian Castellanos and at your lowest point. But when given a chance to save your daughter, you must enter a world filled with nightmares and discover the dark origins of a once-idyllic town to bring her back. Horrifying threats emerge from every corner as the world twists and warps around you. Will you face adversity head on with weapons and traps, or sneak through the shadows to survive?

    STORY:

    Detective Sebastian Castellanos has lost everything, including his daughter, Lily. To save her, he is forced to partner with Mobius, the shadowy organization responsible for the destruction of Sebastian’s former life. Sebastian must descend into one of their terrible creations, the disturbing world of Union. Horrifying threats emerge from every corner, and he must rely on his wits to survive. For his last chance at redemption, the only way out is in.

    -Story of Redemption – Return to the nightmare to win back your life and the ones you love.

    -Discover Horrifying Domains – Explore as far or quickly as you dare, but prepare wisely.

    -Face Disturbing Enemies – Survive the onslaught of horrifying creatures determined to rip you apart.

    -Choose How to Survive – Craft traps, sneak, run and hide, or try to battle the horror with limited ammo.

    -Visceral Horror and Suspense – Enter a frightening world filled with anxiety-inducing thrills and disturbing moments.

    For Sebastian Castellanos, the nightmare is far from over.

    From Tango Gameworks and horror mastermind Shinji Mikami comes The Evil Within 2, the sequel to the widely-praised 2014 survival horror game. In order to save Lily – the daughter he believed he lost years ago – Sebastian will have to step into the madness once again. Announced during the Bethesda E3 2017 Showcase, The Evil Within 2 will launch worldwide on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on Friday the 13th in October 2017.

    Set in Union, a crumbling city built using Lily’s mind as the Core, The Evil Within 2 presents a mix of closed off, claustrophobic environments that are reminiscent of the first game, and new, less linear areas that will give you the opportunity to explore at your own pace. You’ll be able to wander freely and poke through all the dark corners of the world at your leisure, but this is still a survival horror game, and ammo and resources will be scarce. You’ll need to prepare carefully and move cautiously as you discover the secrets of Union and unravel Mobius’ plans from within STEM.

    Using Sebastian’s new communicator device, you will have intermittent access to the real world, with Sebastian’s former protégé Juli Kidman feeding you information from the other end. The communicator device also acts as your guide to Union, offering up unique resonance points in the world that will lead you to resources, side quests, information about the state of the city, and even Lily as you use the communicator to follow in your daughter’s footsteps through STEM. You’ll have to dust off your detective skills and put them to work as you journey through the warped wreckage of Union and face off against untold evils in your attempt to rescue Lily before it’s too late.


    Head First into Hell

    Years ago, before the events of The Evil Within, Sebastian’s daughter Lily died in a tragic house fire. His wife left him shortly after and his life continued to deteriorate when he was pulled into the web of a sinister corporation called Mobius. It has now been three years since his investigation into a series of grisly murders brought him to Beacon Mental Hospital, where Sebastian Castellanos found himself trapped in a deranged nightmare world created inside the mind of a killer.

    After barely surviving the events of the first game, Sebastian was alone. He lost his job, his will, everything. No one believed his story about Beacon, and he has spent the last three years searching for the people responsible for what happened to him at Beacon Mental Hospital, turning up no leads. But now, for the first time in years, Sebastian has a glimmer of hope. Kidman reenters his life and offers him a chance at redemption: Lily is still alive and is being used by Mobius to create a new STEM world, and if Sebastian is willing to submit himself to hell, there’s a chance he can find her and free her. Sebastian will have to journey into STEM once more and face off against untold evil in order to save his daughter.

    “The story we’ve crafted for you is very compelling,” Executive Producer Shinji Mikami says. “Each stage you’ll delve into is very unique. I hope people enjoy the game, and I encourage everyone to thoroughly explore the world.”
    There is some gameplay shown in the extended trailer here, showing off much improved graphics and animations, as well as a wealth of new enemy types.

    That describes it good.

    And yeah, that demo's not exactly representation of the final product, lol.


    Back to EW, good gameplay trailer.

    Evil Within was the best horror game since RE4. Not including Dark Souls games or Bloodborne. These are probably the best horror games.

    Perfect month of release as well. I always love the month of Halloween for horror games.
