Best PS4 Games #20 – The Evil Within 2

Developer: Tango Gameworks

Synopsis: Three years after the Beacon Mental Hospital incident, Sebastian Castellanos still tries to put the pieces together after a raucous, unsettling trip into the Mobious STEM program. Now they’re trying to pull him back in, with Kidman revealing that Sebastian’s once-thought-deceased daughter is still alive within a new Mobius test environment; the city of Union. With Mobius looking after him every step of the way, Sebastian enters the unruly hellhole to bring his daughter back.

Why it’s one of the 50 best PS4 games: The Evil Within 2 does a great job of improving upon its predecessor. In addition to expanding upon the stories of the first game, Sebastian works together with different members of the Mobius task force to take down foes in a semi-open-world environment, with chapters both linear and open-ended.

This drives the horror to unprecedented levels, as the threat of a mutated creature coming to take you down exists from all angles now. To tap into the horror sensibilities while telling a gripping tale that is aware of its standing as a campy survival horror game makes The Evil Within 2 a perfect second chapter.
