A child's nightmares will eat you alive in this new Evil Within 2 gameplay trailer

I've got to admit, I'm a sucker for slow, haunting covers of pop songs a la The Evil Within 2 announcement trailer - but it's also good to have an idea of what a game actually plays like. Enter two minutes of in-engine video and gameplay for The Evil Within 2:

Along with the new footage, Bethesda has unveiled what you'll get for pre-ordering the upcoming horror sequel. Much like the original Evil Within's "Fighting Chance Pack," The Evil Within 2's "Last Chance Pack" will contain items designed to help you survive the nightmarish world.

Putting some money down early will net you the Burst Handgun, which uses bullets that can be found or crafted, an assortment of crafting supplies to help you get started, and a few extra healing items.

The Evil Within 2 is coming to PC, PS4, and Xbox One on (appropriately) Friday, October 13.
