The Evil Within 2’s first-person mode becomes official

This is of less note to us PC types, but still worth a mention. A surprise patch for The Evil Within 2 adds an official first-person mode to the enjoyable, semi-open-world survival horror. If you want to appreciate the detailed environments without also appreciating the back of Sebastian Castellanos' head, you're in luck, as you can now play through the entire game in such a…

2017 Steam Award winners include PUBG, Cuphead & Witcher

We've already seen which games sold best on Steam last year, but a perhaps more meaningful insight into movin' and a-shakin' in PC-land is the games that people feel warmest and snuggliest about. To that end, Valve have announced the winners of the 2017 Steam Awards, a fully community-voted affair which names the most-loved games across categories including best post-launch support, most player agency, exceeding…

The Evil Within 2 free trial lets you play the opening chapters

If the prospect of spending time with your family this holiday season isn't horrifying enough you can always download The Evil Within 2's free trial, which is available now on Steam. In her The Evil Within 2 review, Olivia White called the game "a definitive, well-produced classic survival horror experience" so it's worth a go if you fancy a spooking.

The Evil Within 2 is even spookier in first-person mode

I liked the original The Evil Within, but I can't deny that it was flawed, so I was very pleasantly surprised when the sequel was well received among horror fans. Our own Spookologist Olivia White called it an "extremely fitting follow-up", and it seems that the PC version of the game might have one gruesome last trick up its sleeve. While monkeying around with the…

The Evil Within 2 now haunting a computer near yooOou

Today, Friday the 13th of October, is the second-spookiest day of the year and therefore a fine time to start a horrorshow. The Evil Within 2 [official site] launched over night, continuing the ch-ch-ch-chills from Tango Gameworks. We have a review burbling through our pipes at the moment, burping slime up the sink and making blood run down the walls of the RPS treehouse, but…

Meet The Evil Within 2’s tortured/torturous artist

Let's all go on holiday! To a twisted horror-world that exists solely as the manifestation of a fractured and agonised mind. Sure, the walls will probably bleed and that clock over there is definitely screaming about the severed threads of temporal stability, but there's so much to see and do. And let's not forget all the wonderful people we'll meet as we hike from one…

Dad Schlock: The Evil Within 2’s gameplay trailer

The Evil Within [official site] clicked for me the second time I played it, which makes me regret my slightly sniffy review when I read it back. It’s a schlocky tour through all kinds of horrors, riffing on director Miyakami’s own Resident Evil past as well as a host of other subgenres and tropes. Even though there’s a central plot underneath all the reality shifts,…

The Evil Within 2 announced, “less linear” than the first

Bethesda continue to prove that they're the kings of lyrically-relevant, stylistically-incongruous music choices. Wolfenstein 2 used Wayne Newton's Danke Schön, while The Evil Within 2 [official site] uses a Duran Duran cover in the reveal of its grisly horror sequel. Watch the trailer below.
