Bethesda had mentioned that the second game will be coming out in October on the 13th. Friday the 13th no less, called The Evil Within 2.
“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?”
To say that this game is going to be creepy and horrifying is an understatement, especially considering its from Shinji Mikami – oh you know the guy that directed Resident Evil 4 haha. Resident Evil was always one of those games I dabbled in but never really got into because, well, it scared the hell out of me.
But hey, some people really like being on the edge of their seats scared which is why The Evil Within and The Evil Within 2 will be so popular amongst the masses. The game isn’t set to come out until October 13th so you have plenty of time to decide what to do. Also, as of right now there is only a standard edition but who knows if that will change in the near future. The Evil Within 2 will be available on all the usual console and gaming systems such as Playstation 4, Xbox One, and PC and it will come with either the physical edition or the digital edition – they are ALL the same price so if you really want the digital edition, go for it.

There are quite a few horror games coming out in 2017 – between big titles and indie games, this one will definitely have to do something different in order to really stand out. Looking at a few suggestions from forums and such there are certain things that people would like to see from The Evil Within 2 that they either don’t see in other games like this one or didn’t see in the first one. Here are a few ideas I gathered – see if you agree or disagree with these.
Picking Up More Items For Melee: In The Evil Within you could pick up all sorts of items in the game, but I think people still wanted more, especially when it came to a really powerful tool like an ax and it broke and they had to trade it in for… nothing. People want to be able to pick up ANY object in the game, small or large, heavy or light, predictable or not and be able to use it – this could be something as simple as a shovel or something like a garden hoe.
Make The Graphics Better: One of the top top top complaints about the first game was the fact that sometimes, and usually when it was least wanted, the game would contort and had bad textures. I mean I get it, its supposed to be a gritty game, but the graphics even in the videos I watched were horrifying. Hopefully, in the second game, they really try to utilize all the technology available in 2017 and make the textures and the graphics WAY better than they were in the first game. To be fair though, The Evil Within was made from previous consoles like the Xbox 360 – which obviously didn’t have the same capabilities as the Xbox One, Xbox One S or even the Xbox One X.
Dull Colors: Again, gritty game, fine. But from all the videos I watched and all the people complaining about the first game – people want to see more colors in the new game. Have it be in the actual game or the cut scenes, people also saw a lot of grainy pixelated images – definitely something that can ruin a great game, but again it was the old consoles.
Rogue Camera: You ever play a game where the camera is constantly something you have to fight with to keep it aimed where you are looking? I think we all have. I experienced this in some Assassins Creed games, as well as one I played recently – Beyond Good and Evil. When you’re playing any game, especially one with a lot of action, the last thing you want to do is fight to keep the camera straight. And yet… that’s exactly what you had to do in the first game. Hopefully, when The Evil Within 2 comes out they find a way to fix this.
Well, what do you think about this updates? Do you agree with them? Do you have any others you would like to mention? Let me know in the comments below.
