don’t need to have any prior knowledge of The Evil Within in order to jump into
The Evil Within 2 and understand the conflict and setting, but if you want a
little background info, we’ve got you covered. At its core it’s about a man who
is fighting his demons (both literally and figuratively) as he journeys into a
twisted world to save his daughter. This FAQ is designed to catch you up on the
story and get you ready for The Evil Within 2. Maybe you just need a refresher
course on things you may have forgotten since playing the first game and the two
main DLCs (The Assignment and The Consequence), or maybe you haven’t had a
chance to play anything in the series at all. That’s cool, too.
We’ll start with the first game, The Assignment and The Consequence, and then
we’ll hop into some questions about The Evil Within 2. This FAQ is a living
resource for players both new and old, so we will continue updating with more
questions as we see them pop up in the community.
