And it plays in first person!
The final DLC for Bethesda and Tango’s The Evil Within, the horror action game helmed by genre mastermind Shinji Mikami, is going to see the player slipping on an apron and putting on their best murderous psychopath impression, as it throws them into the role of The Keeper, returning to the Victoriano Estate to make life miserable for everyone.
It’s called The Executioner, and it looks about as violent and gruesomely disturbing as you would expect it to be- this is The Evil Within, after all. It also looks to be a bit more lighthearted (if indeed that word can be applied to something that repeatedly features people being shredded in a burst of blood and gore by a chainsaw), and generally is tonally a bit more campy than The Evil Within was, which attempted to take itself and its proceedings seriously, and treat them with gravitas.
The Executioner will be out May 26. Stay tuned.
