According to Bethesda, The Evil Within 2 is the latest evolution of survival horror from acclaimed developer Shinji Mikami. This time around detective Castellanos has lost it all. However, when given a chance to save his daughter, he descends once more into the nightmarish world of STEM. STEM is a collection of consciousness but their fears and insecurities make it into a hellish environment. As you progress through the campaign, horrifying threats emerge from every corner as the world twists and turns around you.

A few days before Halloween, Bethesda released an update for the game which adds a new difficulty mode, and allows gamers to activate "cheats" on PC and console. You can enable attributes like invincibility, increased strength, and increased stamina if you link your Bethesda.net account to the game.

Be sure to give The Evil Within 2 a go if you haven't already. Some people are turned off due to the game's difficulty, especially during stealth sections. In our review, we said, "The Evil Within 2 is a frightening game, though perhaps not as... scary as the early portions of Resident Evil 7. The game itself is improved nicely over the original, with a great open-world structure and lots of interesting missions to take on. The actual story is extremely compelling as we follow Sebastian's journey towards redemption."
