Experience survival horror from a new perspective with The Evil Within: The Assignment. This is the first of a two-part, story driven experience where players take on the role of detective Juli Kidman, Sebastian Castellanos’ mysterious partner, in a concurrent story that looks to answer some of the questions surrounding her whereabouts during The Evil Within. Along the way she will encounter disturbing new enemies, discover new mysteries, and uncover new horrors.
The Assignment gives fans of The Evil Within the perfect opportunity to discover detective Kidman’s hidden motivations and her mysterious connection to Mobius, the shadowy group thought to be behind the gruesome events of The Evil Within.
With a very interesting and harrowing stealth approach to Evil Within's core, The Assignment proves to be an exemplary DLC. Not only does it explain some of the campaign's more obscure points but it also includes two terrifically tense boss fights. Even if a player did not enjoy the main game so much, the different dynamics of the Assignment make it a very worthwhile proposal for fans of survival horror.
Taking weapons from the player is a bold choice, one that takes you back to survival horror experiences of old, and that's really something, especially for true fans of the genre.
While it may be only three hours long, The Evil Within: The Assignment is a fine slice of DLC.
