Also, Mikami has confirmed that Evil Within 2 will focus more on exploration and a return to survival horror form. He added that instead of focusing on huge set pieces and boss battles, the game will focus on atmosphere and will be much more subtle.
As for the exploration, Mikami has assured that players will be able to fully explore the environments without the fear of going down one path and missing on goodies they left behind. This combined with side quests could lead to an interesting video game experience.
Also, game director John Johanas has revealed that there will be sidequests in the upcoming title that players can tackle however they want. Each side quest will have a different outcome depending on the player or players could just ignore them.
Evil Within 2 is a survival-horror game in development at Tango Gameworks and is scheduled to launch on October 13, 2017, for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
