"With The Evil Within 2, we wanted to give fans a compelling reason to return to the STEM world, a hellscape no one willingly intends to revisit," said John Johanas, Game Director at Tango Gameworks. "For the sequel, we took a more open approach to encourage greater freedom of exploration and to allow players to pick and choose how they want to play. Players must truly prepare themselves in order to survive."

Detective Sebastian Castellanos returns for the sequel and must go back to "the nightmarish STEM world in a desperate search to save his daughter, Lily" says the press release. If that's not motivation, I'm a turnip. "Along the journey, Sebastian must confront new twisted creatures and sadistic villains while braving an atmosphere of true terror, heightened by cutting edge lighting and an eerie soundtrack. In a last attempt at redemption, the only way out is in" promises the press release.

As today happens to be Friday the 13th, I have some intriguing facts for you. Note that these are interesting regardless of which day it happens to be when you read them.
