After contending with the horrors that saw fit to dismember him, Castellanos survived the whole ordeal but sadly sought therapy within a beer bottle. After getting word that someone he loves is actually alive and trapped within another nightmare prison, Castellanos decides to attach himself to the device that gave him so much trouble before.

Producer Shinji Mikami, Tango Gameworks and Bethesda Softworks are set to make sure that The Evil Within 2 raises the bar within the survival horror sub-genre. Before this year’s Friday the 13th in October arrives, make sure you’re well prepared for what awaits you in The Evil Within 2.
