Saturday Game School is our weekly Windows Central livestream in which we play an Xbox One game and give out free games and prizes to our live viewers. It's like a live podcast, only you also get to watch a game while chatting with our awesome readers and viewers!
Tonight on Mixer, we played The Evil Within 2, the amazing horror game from Bethesda, and gave out Xbox gift cards to lucky viewers. Read on for quick impressions and contest winners.
The Evil Within 2
The Evil Within 2 is the sequel to Bethesda's survival horror hit. It picks up three years after the original game. Discovering that his daughter has become trapped in a virtual world by an evil corporation, our protagonist Sebastian has no choice but to go in after her. But once there, he discovers that an all-powerful serial killer has other plans for anyone unlucky enough to enter his world.
The Evil Within 2 can be genuinely disturbing at times. After walking down a deserted road filled with abandoned cars, Sebastian eventually witnesses a woman rushing into a ruined house. Following her inside, we discover the woman is shoving rotted food into a near-dead teenager's mouth.
When he doesn't eat, she madly smashes his head into the table, leaving him a gory mess. She then comes at our hero, worm-like tentacles erupting from her mouth. It's like a cross between the Plagas from Resident Evil 4 and the family of killers from Resident Evil 7.
The Evil Within 2 is a frightening game full of creepy characters and images. The game itself has improved nicely over the original, with a great open-world-like structure and lots of interesting missions to take on. The actual story is incredibly compelling as we follow Sebastian's journey towards redemption amid a world filled with both human and inhuman monsters. If you like survival horror games, this one won't let you down. See our full review for more details!
The Evil Within 2 sells for $59.99 on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Steam.
