The Evil Within 2’s latest trailer puts the spotlight on combat and action

A new trailer for Tango Gameworks’ upcoming sequel, The Evil Within 2, shows that the game will contain frighteningly tense moments and pulse-pounding action in equal measure.

The trailer, which is titled ‘Race Against Time,’ offers a series of quick-cut glimpses at the various monsters, both of the literal and figurative variety, that protagonist Sebastian Castellanos will face in his quest to save his daughter from the nightmare world of STEM. However, footage from the trailer also seems to suggest Sebastian will have a few allies as well, though chances are good that at least one or two of those allies will meet a gruesome end at the hands of STEM’s various monstrosities.

The Evil Within 2 is set to launch on October 13 (Friday the 13th) for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
