‘The Assignment’ is the first of a two-part story that puts players in control of Juli Kidman, one of the partners of ‘The Evil Within’ protagonist Detective Sebastian Castellanos. The events of the story DLC run alongside those of the main campaign, and should serve to answer some of the unanswered questions that lingered about Kidman’s whereabouts during ‘The Evil Within’.
Besides giving more story to the world of ‘The Evil Within,’ ‘The Assignment’ will also feature new creatures for players to take on/potentially run away in terror from. As far as what these creatures are exactly, feel free to try to figure them out yourself in the gameplay trailer below.
As stated, ‘The Assignment’ is the first of a two-party story. It’s second part, entitled ‘The Consequence,’ is scheduled to be released sometime in Spring. Overall, the story DLC is stated by Bethesda to explore “Kidman’s hidden motivations and her mysterious connection to Mobius, the shadowy group thought to be behind the gruesome events of The Evil Within.”
Both ‘The Assignment’ and ‘The Consequence’ are included with ‘The Evil Within’ $20 Season Pass, which also comes with an additional DLC entitled ‘The Executioner’. However, ‘The Assignment’ can also be bought individually for $9.99.
‘The Evil Within’ was originally released back in October 2014. It is a survival horror game created by ‘Resident Evil’ creator Shinji Mikami. The game puts players in control of Detective Sebastian Castellanos as he investigates the mysterious scene of a mass murder at a local asylum. But when he and his partners are suddenly attack by a mysterious evil force, Castellanos is dragged into a deranged nightmarish world filled with terrifying creatures. Forced to fight for his survival, Castellanos must unravel the mystery of the mysterious evil force and a hooded man covered in burns who stands at the center of it all.
‘The Assignment’ is available now on PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and Windows PC.
