The latest Evil Within 2 trailer is all about time and how you never have enough of it. There’s also some creepy looking cultists and a few demon things. Also, there’s a machete that shoots fire. Actually, we probably should have led with that…

Regardless, Evil Within 2 continues to look pretty great. Check out the new footage below:

A new trailer has arrived, and it’s all about Stefano Valentini, a twisted artist who takes grisly photos of his victims and displays them as masterpieces. “You’ll see examples of his work scattered throughout Union – from grisly photographs of his victims, to the ‘moment of death’ tableaus he creates, capturing the last seconds of a person’s life in a tangible, looping scene,” says Bethesda about the character.

The Evil Within 2 Details

Even though former Resident Evil director Shinji Mikami isn’t directing The Evil Within 2, the legendary gaming horror icon revealed to IGN that he was nonetheless involved with the creative process. 

“I want Tango Gameworks to be a studio where young and talented creators are given a chance to succeed,” Mikami said of the team handling the development of the sequel. “John [Johanas] has a lot of talent. An opportunity like this would have come his way sooner or later.”

While Mikami stated that he believes “it was time for the younger talent to do their thing,” he also revealed that he has been managing the overall direction of the studio. Mikami also noted that he doesn’t keep up with every modern horror game, but he did play Resident Evil 7 and noted that it “was crafted beautifully.”

As for The Evil Within 2, John Johanas stated that fans shouldn’t expect a horror experience similar to recent hit titles like Alien: Isolation and Outlast.

“I think that type of pure horror gameplay is definitely compelling and I tend to enjoy it as well, but it can get a little overbearing if it goes on too long,” said Johanas. “Not to give away too much, but just like the original, there are some times where you have to run and hide rather than fight, but for the most part The Evil Within 2 puts you in situations where, if you are prepared correctly, you can take on the enemies.”

Johanas also noted that the original game’s controversial cinematic aspect ration will be replaced by more traditional aspect options. Furthermore, he says that The Evil Within 2 is not an open-world game, but there are several large level sections that allow for some freedom of movement.
