Great Expectations for "Evil Within 2"

Updated on September 4, 2017

Everything Sebastian thought he knew about his daughter's tragic death is a lie...

Three years after the events of the main game and the downloadable licensed content including Juli Kidman's story, Detective Sebastian Castellanos has lost everything in the wake of the events in the first game. Alcoholism has taken his career and his wife after the tragic loss of their daughter, Lily in a house fire.

On the case of a serial killer in a mental hospital, Sebastian wages war with twisted monsters and the ghosts of collective victim;s pasts inside the Stem Machine emerging battered and mentally scarred.

Now Juli Kidman calls to Sebastian again telling him the worst possible truth- everything he knows about the death of his daughter is a lie and Sebastian must go back into a dark and macabre subconscious of his daughter as she is hunted through various nightmare-like realities to save her.

What we know so far about the game play from Bethesda's website many of the game mechanics are similar including a form yet to be announced in game play trailers of the upgrade "brain gel", which in the first game was collected by burning the bodies of fallen enemies, killing a boss, or hidden in the environment of the levels.The brain gel is used to upgrade weapons and unlock skill sets and abilities for Sebastian.

The game is also said by early reviewers at E3 to have more open world concepts and a hub area in the town of Union. similar to the hospital where Sebastian kept returning to save the game and upgrade his abilities and weapons in the first game.

This hub area is a welcome approach to many a weary gamer, like myself that had to restart levels in the original title realizing mid-way through the first title in levels like "The Keeper", you may not need the exact amount of ammo for a weapon that would dispatch a boss at the end of a chapter. Especially in the case of "The Keeper" chapter beginning the first encounter directly after a cut scene, leaving you unable to equip a weapon.

The Evil Within 2 will be released on October 13.
