At the E3 2017, Bethesda pulled the bloody curtain back on "The Evil Within 2" but survival horror fans' reactions have been somewhat tempered. Now, a new gameplay trailer for "The Evil Within 2" was posted onto Bethesda's official YouTube channel.

"The Evil Within 2" Extended Gameplay Trailer Details

"The Evil Within 2" has new plans for Sebastian this time around. After finding some proof that his daughter Lily may still be alive, Detective Sebastian Castellanos will have to pull himself out of a very low, dark place and reenter the hellish realm of STEM, according to Twinfinite.

Fans of "The Evil Within" and of horror in general, will be able to experience the continuation of the detective's story. Fans will also face an onslaught of deadly monsters, in-your-face action, and psychological terrors as you battle literal and metaphorical demons.

If you own a PlayStation 4, Xbox One, or a PC, you will be able to own the game this year. The date is very fitting actually, arriving on Friday, October the 13th.

It Will Not Be Directed By Resident Evil Creator

There's speculation about Shinji Mikami may be working on another project within Bethesda, although he could just be taking a bit of a break after nearly 30 years in the video game industry. Fans believe that "The Evil Within" was very much a Mikami joint, featuring tons of references and homages to his other horror creation, "Resident Evil".

However, Comic Book reported that the "Evil Within 2" will still instead by directed by John Johanas, who was a visual effects designer for the first game and headed up the game's two expansions, The Assignment, and The Consequence. Basically, Johanas helped make the original game's trippy visuals, so expect even more of those this time around.

"The Evil Within "was largely sold as Shinji Mikami's spiritual successor to "Resident Evil". With Mikami no longer as heavily involved and the "Resident Evil" references seemingly being toned down, the series will have to stand on its own two feet.
