New story details for The Evil Within 2
Bethesda outlines the narrative of the sequel to help players catch up
Publisher Bethesda has provided some new details about the story in the upcoming horror sequel The Evil Within 2.
Although the team says that players are not required to have played the first game to get into the new chapter, these new details will help you understand the conflict and setting.
"At its core it’s about a man who is fighting his demons (both literally and figuratively) as he journeys into a twisted world to save his daughter. He’s still incredibly sharp, but his emotional state is fragile and he can be found hanging out in bars more often than not," say the developers.
"But the Sebastian you play in the second game is much different from the one you play in the first. Sebastian is lost, confused and just trying to survive in The Evil Within. With The Evil Within 2, the world is still a mysterious place and he’s still fighting to stay alive, but now he has a purpose. Rather than getting pulled into STEM involuntarily (STEM is a device that allows for a shared consciousness experience), he’s making the active choice to go back. Sebastian is a man on a mission to save his daughter and he refuses to let anything stand in his way."
