Echoes from the Past
Scattered throughout the world of The Evil Within 2, you can find whispers from the past – events that Sebastian would prefer to forget. One such whisper can be found in a rather nondescript house we explored during the recent hands-on time with the game at Gamescom in Germany. And it was through this whisper that we learned even more about Sebastian’s fractured mind – including new insights into Sebastian’s mental state after the events of the first game.
Sebastian knows this is a new STEM system, built using his daughter Lily’s mind as the Core – a core that has no reason to know of the people, places or events from his first experience in STEM. He knows he’s the only link between the previous STEM system he entered and this one, so when his memories of Beacon start to bleed into Union, it only makes sense that he starts to question the reality of what he sees. It’s a race against time to find Lily before Union completely rips itself apart, but he’ll also have to worry about his own mind destroying itself in the process.
A new Bethesda.net feature highlights Sebastian’s fragile grasp on reality in The Evil Within 2. Is it all real? Or is it Sebastian’s mind playing tricks on him?
This house is just one of the many locations you can visit in Union if you choose to explore, and all of them will provide you with certain benefits, whether they are much-needed resources or (like this one) a deeper dive into the game’s lore.
The Evil Within 2 releases on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on Friday the 13th this October. As Sebastian Castellanos, you’ll have to dive into hell once more in the sequel to the hit 2014 survival horror game from the mind of Shinji Mikami. Take on twisted creatures in horrifying domains and face off against your own worst nightmares as you race to save your daughter.
