With less than a month until the release of The Evil Within 2, this week I had the chance to spend some more time with the survival horror game’s second chapter. Even though I only spent an hour with The Evil Within 2, the portion that I played was packed full of memorable messed up moments that stayed with me long after my playthrough. Here’s the five creepiest moments from the hands-on demo.

Not contempt with retracing the footsteps of its predecessor, the gameplay of The Evil Within 2 focuses a lot more on the exploratory nature of an open-world setting. However, the game is at its terrifying best when it takes this open-world freedom away and accosts you with a set piece you must engage with in order to progress further through the story.
