A trusted source has chosen to share with us some details about The Evil Within 2, it seems the game is vastly different than the original, but way better in our opinion! Without further ado, here are all the juicy details:
2 Years have passed since the events of the first game, Ruvik managed to use his psychic powers to take over Mobius, with Mobius' henchmen under his direct control, he sets his sights on world domination. Only Sebastian & and Co. are bad enough to oppose him.
The gameplay is described as a "Squad-Based Shooter" by the source. You control Sebastian, but you can issue orders to your team mates, whom can be controlled by A.I. Alternatively, other players online can join your game and take command of one of your team mates, this is the game's Co-OP mode.
Utilize the cover mechanics and unlimited ammo to take out Mobius' heavily armed elite corps and mercenaries. All characters are equipped with their own unique abilities like Bullet Time, Auto-Aim, and RAGE MODE.
Don't worry, creatures from the first game will be back too...Due to Ruvick's magical abilities, monsters now roam the world freely. But it turns out they're quite docile outside of Ruvick's control, so they'll act as friendly NPCs in the game where you can take quests from.
One quest let's you help The Keeper with his love life, here's some concept art:
The game is developed exclusively for the Nintendo Switch using the Unity Engine, Cliff Blezensiky has been hired by Bethesda to direct the game, while Mikami will just sit around counting money (as usual).
It's planned to release in October 22, 2020.
Please be excited!
