Bethesda’s E3 conference wasn’t really filled so much with surprises as it was great reveals of things we kind of knew was on the way. The Evil Within 2 being announced wasn’t a shock, but the release date and trailer preceding it helped raise the hype for the sequel to the 2014 horror title. The release date for the sequel will be October 13th, which is almost exactly three years after the original game released back on October 14th, 2014. You can watch the trippy trailer above.
Shinji Mikami and his team at Tango Gameworks are returning to the story of Sebastian Castellanos as he tries to bring back his daughter from a nightmare-fuelled world of terrors called Union. He works with Mobius, which was introduced in the first game, in order to save his daughter, Lily. Expect the horrors and suspense from the previous game to be amplified with The Evil Within 2 as the story takes players on a quest for redemption amidst only the hellish of circumstances. Gameplay footage was shown today on Geoff Keighley’s E3 coverage, which you can watch below.
The Evil Within 2 will launch on October 13th, 2017 for PC, PS4, and Xbox One. Let us know in the comments below whether you’re excited for the sequel, and stay tuned to BagoGames for more coverage of E3 2017.
