The Evil Within 2 ‘Gruesome, Giggling Guardian’ gameplay

Meet the monstrous Guardian.

The Evil Within 2

Bethesdsa Softworks has posted a five-minute gameplay video of The Evil Within 2 showing a snippet of footage from the second chapter of the game, during which the player comes across a monstrous creature known as Guardian.

Here’s a setup to the video, via Bethesda Softworks:

A breathless chase down a hallway. Echoing laughter and the whirring of a sawblade dogging your steps. If you’re brave enough to look behind you, you’ll see the maelstrom of body parts that make up the monstrous creature known as Guardian. Aside from a handful of brief glimpses in trailers, the recent hands-on demo for The Evil Within 2 was our first real up-close-and-personal encounter with Guardian.

The Evil Within 2 is due out for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on October 13.
