The Evil Withheld
Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the asylum/figment of your imagination, Bethesda's narrowed down the start date for The Evil Within season pass to March. Though Tango Gameworks has kept you waiting for a while, it sounds like the new episodes will give you an illuminating new look at the main campaign's mysterious events.
Don't worry about poor Sebastian Castellanos - his partner, Juli Kidman, will be suffering in his stead in the first two episodes. And you'll even get to see things from the Keeper's point of view in the third one... Well, not literally, since his point of view is somewhat obscured by the safe. Want to know more? Make sure you check out the teaser trailer below and click on for more details.
Kidman's first starring episode, The Assignment, will release in March on PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One. Game director John Johanas has said that that it will put Kidman in 'more dark, lonely, and claustrophobic' circumstances than Sebastian Castellanos encountered which doesn't sound good for her, considering that Castellanos' story was hardly a trip to the beach. On the other hand, her unique perspective on the surreal events gives her room for 'a bit of banter and commentary'.
Kidman will also star in The Consequence later this year. You probably have a few questions for Kidman after her role in the main campaign, but don't expect the DLC to tie up every last loose end - it will raise a few questions of its own.
He's a real Keeper
The third and final piece of The Evil Within's season pass will star the villainous Keeper - you know, the guy with a lockbox on his head and an oversized meat tenderizer in his hands. Bethesda is keeping mum about how and why players will carry out his grim business until closer to its release.
