Shinji Mikami is making 'The Evil Within 2'
Yes, those are the strains of Duran Duran's 'Ordinary World' providing the soundtrack to a creepy, but actually quite restrained, trailer for The Evil Within 2. The premise sounds simple enough, as the returning Detective Sebastian Castellanos you want to save your daughter Lily, but then things get all weird and Westworld-esque white goo goes everywhere. The idea of the STEM returns, a device that could connect the minds of different subjects, allow some to create a new reality or travel into memories. It's classic batshit horror game stuff, and the trailer embraced it with a dark relish.
The Evil Within 2 releases worldwide on Friday, October 13 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
