The Evil Within 2 has just lurched onto PlayStation 4, and as always, Digital Foundry is first on the scene with a detailed technical analysis. Those of you who played the first game will no doubt recall that it had some pretty bad framerate issues, which, at points, could really damage the experience. Fortunately, the survival-horror...
The Evil Within was an overlooked survival horror gem. It may have been rough around the edges with some performance and gameplay issues, but it was a much-appreciated return to old survival-horror design philosophies. Scarce ammo, unforgiving difficulty, intentionally limiting controls – elements like these filled the void that...
Silent but deadly
The Evil Within 2 launches tomorrow, but Bethesda policy means we won’t have our review ready for a few more days yet. The rest of media is in the same boat, of course, but a few verdicts have trickled out online – and a couple of impressions pieces, too. We figured that we’d round these up for you, because it’s probably...
Here's its launch trailer to prove it
The Evil Within 2 launches on the PlayStation 4 this week, which feels a bit weird, doesn’t it? The first game had a massive marketing budget behind it, mostly focusing on the return of Resident Evil 4 director and all-around video game hall of famer Shinji Mikami. This one? We’ve barely seen a sniff of it...
The Evil Within 2 is out in a matter of weeks now, and Bethesda hasn't been shy about publishing new gameplay footage. This time it's Game Informer who's gone live with 20 minutes of terror from the forthcoming Tango Gameworks developed sequel. Can you feel the heat from here?
Ain’t nothing subtle about this The Evil Within 2 trailer as protagonist Sebastian Castellanos hangs with religious cultists and cuts the throats of all kinds of reanimated corpses. With the survival horror sequel being barely a month away, it doesn’t feel like there’s much hype for Tango Works’ latest terror – but we’re sure...
You know you’re in trouble when your (potentially) dead daughter develops a sinister side and starts inhibiting your head from beyond the grave. That’s what appears to be going on in this The Evil Within 2 trailer, which introduces gameplay and gruesome monsters from the impending sequel. Some of these designs are straight-up...
We don't Kidman
The Evil Within was incredibly bonkers and unpredictable, but it's these attributes that made it the bizarre, tense horror game that we loved. With appropriately scarce resources, deliberately hampered movement, and terrifying enemies, we've been hoping that Shinji Mikami wouldn't cave and turn the sequel into something like the...
Out on 13th October
Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikami is back with his sophomore survival horror effort: The Evil Within 2. Announced overnight as part of Bethesda’s E3 2017 showcase, and set to release on 13th October for the PlayStation 4, the game plots the return of Detective Sebastian Castellanos, as he descends into the “disturbing world...
Voorhees a jolly good fellow
Marketing masterstoke numero uno: survival horror sequel The Evil Within 2 will release on Friday, 13th October for the PlayStation 4. Bethesda confirmed the date alongside a meaty (and mad) reveal trailer, which included people drowning in milk and all sorts of other insanity. Watch it above.
The only way out is in
Bethesda! You had just over 12 hours to go, but you’ve set your ad live for The Evil Within 2 early. Over on Reddit there’s currently a sponsored post promoting the next entry in the survival horror series, which will surely be announced during Bethesda’s press conference. The post states that veteran director Shinji...
Bethesda's press conference at E3 2015 seemed like a fancy way of announcing Fallout 4, so we were taken aback when it revealed that it would be repeating the song and dance this year. But apparently it's got plenty to show, with rumours swirling that in addition to a remastered version of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, it's also going to...
Survival horror games are part of a somewhat niche genre that constantly break moulds and, in the process, either make unexpected, monumental strides in innovation or uproarious setbacks by straying too far into other genres. Regardless, many of them have shocked the gaming world, and The Evil Within was no exception last year. Much...
You've got to be Kidman me
The threads of The Evil Within's convoluted plot will get increasingly tangled next month, as Bethesda has announced that add-on pack The Assignment is imminent. This will boast a fresh concurrent storyline starring detective Juli Kidman, and promises to uncover the truth behind her association with the mysterious Mobius...
Don't tease us, please
With unforgiving combat, a surreal storyline, and infrequent checkpoints, last year's The Evil Within was a case of horror game Marmite – you either loved it or you hated it. Assuming that you fall into the former camp, though, you may be excited to learn that DLC is on the way, with 'The Assignment' due out in March...
Clair de Loony
The Evil Within knows how to make you sweat. Tango Gameworks’ disgusting debut outing will leave you teetering on the precipice of failure with every twisted encounter, causing you to curse your shortage of resources or your character’s lack of superhuman strength. This is a game that, like its survival horror superiors, isn’t...
Sony loves its bundles at the moment, so it’s no surprise to see it sell Shinji Mikami’s upcoming survival horror The Evil Within – or Psycho Break as it's known overseas – alongside a couple of custom PlayStation 4 consoles in Japan. Like previous sets in the East, these come with custom hard drive fascias, showing a mansion...
Within without you
As Jane Austen famously stated in Pride and Prejudice, it is a truth universally acknowledged that a trailer for a survival horror game is made much more terrifying when it has Debussy's Clair de Lune playing in the background. Unfortunately, the creators of The Evil Within's latest offering forgot the second half of that popular...
Shiver down the spine
It really is the generation of terror, with The Evil Within one of several scary titles set to deploy on the PlayStation 4 this year. Don’t think that you’re going to see this one through swiftly either, as the Shinji Mikami developed release will unsettle you for up to 20 hours according to Bethesda’s public relations...
Heralded as a true survival horror experience, and considered the spiritual successor to the widely adored Resident Evil 4, The Evil Within's gory gameplay has several of us here at Push Square pretty buzzed. Unfortunately, the title was delayed earlier this year, and was not scheduled to release until late October. However, at QuakeCon...
You're Mikami crazy
When legendary developer and horror game kingpin Shinji Mikami first unleashed the T-Virus onto the PSone in 1996, he not only managed to popularise the genre with mainstream audiences, but also founded a blockbuster franchise that would go on to sell millions. Some 18 years later, it could be argued that the long running...
