The Evil Within: The Consequence Out Now



The Consequence, the second part to the two-part DLC for survival horror game The Evil Within, is out right now!

The DLC will conclude Kidman’s story and help shed some much needed light on what Sebastian Castellanos’s mysterious partner was up to during the events of the The Evil Within. We’re not going to spoil it for anyone who hasn’t had a chance to delve into the first part of Kidman’s story, titled The Assignment, yet, so that’s all we’re revealing.

As opposed to The Assignment, which almost exclusively featured stealth gameplay, The Consequence will incorporate gunplay into the mix, which should satisfy those who weren’t totally keen on the first installment’s reliance on stealth.

But don’t worry, this won’t be the last piece of DLC we’ll see for The Evil Within. A third DLC installment is planned to be released sometime in the future, which is titled The Executioner—dubbed “The Keeper DLC” up until this point—and is suspected to be a type of challenge map wherein players take control of the Keeper—a humanoid creature in the main game that has a safe for a head, which served as a multi-stage boss fight.

The Evil Within Season Pass grants access to both The Assignment and The Consequence, plus the upcoming Executioner DLC for an economic price. Alternatively, all three installments can be bought separately for slightly more than buying them all together.

Haven’t played through the first part of Kidman’s story? Our own Scott Davidson gave The Assignment a final verdict score of 58%, pointing out that its flashlight mechanic worked well for puzzles, though criticised it for its boring and repetitive gameplay, lack of upgrades and weapons, and dull story.
