Best Character Upgrades?

Postby Remjexhai » Jul 26, 2014 11:16 pm

So for anyone who hasn't seen the IGN E3 2014 footage (, The Evil Within will allow us to customize our characters with a variety of different upgrades. I thought it would be nice to get a general idea of what everyone's preferred character builds are for these kinds of games.

Personally, I try to stay away from increased weapon damage early on, since they tend to be rather expensive and can make you disproportionately powerful to the beginning enemies. I prefer to invest in abilities that increase the diversity of the character, so that you are better equipped to tackle a variety of situations. In this game, that would probably mean focusing on things like Agony Bolts, Sprinting Time, and Item Stock. Of course, buying whatever's cheapest is usually a good way to go about doing that as well.

What kind of character do you like to play?

I don't know if its even an option to upgrade , but I would work on increasing the stealth mode and the ability and skills to do more sneaking and killing silently.

Usually accuracy, and pistol damage (if that's what you get most ammo for). After that gradually increasing health. It's difficult to know as I'm only skimming through videos so I'm not exactly sure how much of the combat will be gun based or stealth based. If there's any kind of silencer in the game I'll head for that straight away - though I doubt there will be.
