There’s no better day to drop this, eh?
Yes, on the said date, Evil Within 2 will be available in fine game retailers in the Philippines.
To be honest, I haven’t full played any atmospheric psycho-thriller games yet for the PS4 but this one, especially the way it was hyped in the Tokyo Game Show a month ago, has been on my radar for quite sometime now.
The first installment, The Evil Within, was praised for its unique horror elements and its eerie atmosphere while the sequel, we were told, is going to crank everything up while having a more digestible story. It may mean more gore, more edge-of-your-seat moments and tougher decisions to make. As a fan of the stealth-action genre, the fact that the game lets you sneak behind the nightmarish creatures or maybe even turn the tables on them has me stoked.

Philippines, October 6, 2017 – Sony Interactive Entertainment Hong Kong Limited Singapore Branch (SIES) today announced that The Evil Within 2 will be available in the Philippines on Friday the 13th of October, 2017 for PlayStation 4 at Suggested Retail Price of PHP 2,799 (Disc version).
Developed by the talented team at Tango Gameworks and mastermind Shinji Mikami, The Evil Within 2 takes the acclaimed franchise to a new level with its unique blend of psychological thrills and true survival horror.
“The Evil Within 2 represents our vision for the advancement of survival horror games,” said Mikami. “We’ve created a frightening world with tension-filled twists and disturbing moments, and give players the choice between multiple paths and tactics as they fight for survival. You must prepare wisely in order to come out alive.”
You are Detective Sebastian Castellanos and at your lowest point. But when given a chance to save your daughter, you must enter a world filled with nightmares and discover the dark origins of a once-idyllic town to bring her back. Horrifying threats emerge from every corner as the world twists and warps around you. Will you face adversity head on with weapons and traps, or sneak through the shadows to survive? This is your one chance at redemption, and the only way out is in.
Evil Within 2 includes initial bonus of The Last Chance Pack. These items will help you survive a little longer in the nightmarish world of Union where you’ll face disturbing enemies to save your daughter, Lily. The Last Chance Pack contains:
- The Burst Handgun – This exclusive weapon is only available through The Last Chance Pack and uses handgun bullets that can be found or crafted.
- Crafting Supplies – Upgrade your go-to weapon, craft additional ammo, or make traps to incapacitate enemies with these supplies available at the start of your descent into Union.
- Medical Supplies – You’ll need to stay alive to save Lily, and these medical supplies will give you the aid you need to venture deeper into the madness
That Last Chance Pack seems like an essential one for the game. It is an initial bonus so it won’t be available for later editions of the game so grab ’em early.
