Hello guys, hope you’re having a good day. Well, it’s that time of year again. The Electronic Entertainment Expo (more commonly known as E3) is currently going on and we’ve gotten some interesting trailers/reveals from it. So I’m gonna talk about them for the next couple of posts. So here we go.
The first trailer we’re talking about today is the announcement/reveal trailer for “The Evil Within 2”, the sequel to the 2014 horror game from game director Shinji Mikami. So what’s going on here? Well, first the story for the first game to give a little bit of context. Sebastian Castellanos (Anson Mount) is a police detective that gets sent with his colleagues Julie (Jennifer Carpenter) and Joseph (Yuri Lowenthal) to investigate a horrible massacre at an asylum.And when they get there they get dragged into a mindbending and quite fucked up adventure trying to stop an evil madman named Ruvik (Jackie Earle Haley). Now, onto the sequel. Sebastian (voice actor not confirmed) seems to get a report from Kidman (voice actor not confirmed) that Seb’s daughter (who we found out died), might actually be alive. So now he has to go on anotehr fucked up mission through the horrors of the mind. But the trailer not only reveals the existence of the game and reveals a little bit of plot, but there’s also a little bit of gameplay towards the end… and it looks like more of the first, which I’m okay with, because I really enjoyed the first game. And wait a minute, did they tease the return of the spider-lady from the first game? Oh shit. Now, will this game be able to scare me as much as the ninth chapter of the first game? Who the fuck knows. All I know is that this looks kind of creepy and mindbendy and yeah, I’m excited. “The Evil Within 2” is set to be released on Friday the 13th of October 2017… wait that’s this year, right in time for the “Month of Spooks”!
What are your thoughts? Are you excited for “The Evil Within 2”? And what did you think of the first game (if you played it)? Leave any and all thoughts in the comments.
Have a good one and enjoy the madness, I mean trailer!
