D2 is pretty awesome. Honeymoon period has worn off though. A lot of improvements, but also a lot of stupid changes that nobody asked for. It's a 2 steps forward, one step back scenario. It's still a vast improvement over D1, but there are a lot of missed opportunities
For Sebastian Castellanos, the nightmare is far from over. From Tango Gameworks and horror mastermind Shinji Mikami comes The Evil Within 2, the sequel to the widely-praised 2014 survival horror game. In order to save Lily - the daughter he believed he lost years ago - Sebastian will have to step into the madness once again.
Set in Union, a crumbling city built using Lily's mind as the Core, The Evil Within 2 presents a mix of closed off, claustrophobic environments that are reminiscent of the first game, and new, less linear areas that will give you the opportunity to explore at your own pace. You'll be able to wander freely and poke through all the dark corners of the world at your leisure, but this is still a survival horror game, and ammo and resources will be scarce. You'll need to prepare carefully and move cautiously as you discover the secrets of Union and unravel Mobius' plans from within STEM.
Using Sebastian's new communicator device, you will have intermittent access to the real world, with Sebastian's former protégé Juli Kidman feeding you information from the other end. The communicator device also acts as your guide to Union, offering up unique resonance points in the world that will lead you to resources, side quests, information about the state of the city, and even Lily as you use the communicator to follow in your daughter's footsteps through STEM. You'll have to dust off your detective skills and put them to work as you journey through the warped wreckage of Union and face off against untold evils in your attempt to rescue Lily before it's too late.
Pre-order The Evil Within 2 to receive The Last Chance Pack. These items will help you survive a little longer in the nightmarish world of Union where you'll face disturbing enemies to save your daughter, Lily.
