The past doesn't rest
After three years since the events of the first game, Sebastian Castellanos is a wreck of a man and longer a detective. His life seems life a downward spiral of self-destruction, until he's told that his daughter, long thought dead, is alive. Castellanos and his erstwhile uneasy ally Juli Kidman set out to unveil the mysteries obscuring Lily's apparent death.Reconnect to STEM and dive into the shared mindscape, hiding many guaranteed dangers and some possible answers.Whatever you find, it might prove too much for your sanity. Will you press on despite the danger?
Crafting and survival
You can't rely fully on helpful crates and supplies. If you want to survive in the hostile mindscape-town Union you will need to gather supplies and do your own crafting. Bullets will always be scarce if you don't find a way to create more, and healing is in short supply in a land where monsters roam.Use a workbench in your safehouse to craft everything you think you may need out among the nightmares, including upgrades for your weapons, which may shift the odds ever so slightly in your favour. You need to manage your resources wisely, or the path to your daughter rescue may turn out to be insurmountable.
Open world structure
During The Evil Within 2 gameplay you'll roam large, open areas full of secrets and disturbing occurrences to discover. The places you visits hide more than you can see at a cursory glance. Investigate bizarre rifts, ghostly images and shadow cults, and have a chance at getting more resources to help you along the way. The real question is: can you accept and survive the risks of investigating things beyond your ken?
Body horror and psychological turmoil
The Evil Within II draws inspirations from many sources, including the deeply disturbing classic horror movie The Jacob's Ladder and the Silent Hill series. In playing you must be ready to disconcerting apparitions, horrifyingly disfigured enemies, and a sense of existential dread.Rooms full of mutilated bodies, enemies twisted beyond any resemblance to a human being, TEW2 holds nothing back in creating a compelling and disturbing image of a tormented mindscape.
Safehouse and progression
Not everywhere do you need to fear for your sanity and existence. You will find a safe haven, where you'll be able to breathe freely, and even work on improving your chances with the help of a Green Gel. Sebastian can work on improving his abilities divided into five categories: health, stealth, combat, recovery, and athleticism. There's also always a cup of coffee to get him back on his legs, should he feel under the weather.
