There’s a certain genius to madness. That’s especially true for crafting superb survival horror that balances the irrational and bizarre with careful consideration. The Evil Within, which put players in a psychopath’s mind-made reality, was one such example. There was tension-inducing enemy encounters amid erratic pacing...
So, The Evil Within 2 is getting a first-person mode for some reason, allowing you to play through the game from the perspective of its grizzled protagonist. An interesting addition, to say the least. The mode is added via the game's latest patch, which means it obviously won't cost you a penny. We wonder how much it'll change...
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.

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.

The Evil Within 2 launches tomorrow, but Bethesda policy means we won’t have our review ready for a few more days yet.

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...
Out on 13th October

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...
