Spread fear as the Boxman in one of three The Evil Within add-ons

Read our full The Evil Within review.

The Evil Within is due for three DLC add-ons, meriting a Season Pass worth $20 (no word on what a la carte pricing will look like). In the first of these, players step into the role of one of the game’s key malevolent forces, The Keeper. Also known as Boxman. Why is he called that? Well. See here….

Dude likes his boxes. And rusty chains, apparently. There’s very little detail beyond that on this first add-on. Players guide Boxman through a series of “mission-based maps,” presumably spreading terror and painting the walls red with blood all the while.

The second and third DLC add-ons come together as a two-part story that follows Juli Kidman, partner of The Evil Within protagonist Sebastian Castellanos. Again, there’s very little detail here. We’ll just give it to you in publisher Bethesda Softworks’ words, straight from the announcement: “Encounter unthinkable enemies and new areas that reveal hidden motives and harrowing evil.”

Not just any evil. Harrowing evil. So you know it’s serious.

The Evil Within looks like it’s shaping up to be a creepy good time. That’s no surprise, given the pedigree of the game’s creator. Shinji Mikami is best known for his work on the Devil May Cry and Resident Evil series’, and there’s a little bit of DNA from both pulled into The Evil Within‘s split focus on fighting unearthly terrors while trying to survive their onslaught with only minimal resources.

The Evil Within comes to PC and PlayStation/Xbox consoles on October 14, 2014. There’s no word on when the DLC will be arriving.
