Bethesda Softworks and Tango Gameworks announced today that "The Assignment" a new piece of downloadable content for The Evil Within, will be available next week March 10 for Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC, and on March 11 for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4.
Experience survival horror from a new perspective across a two-part, story driven experience with The Evil Within: The Assignment and The Evil Within: The Consequence. 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 and The Consequence give 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.
For many that have completed The Evil Within, the mysteries surrounding Sebastian’s partner, Juli Kidman, are among the most discussed plotlines in the game. These questions (and new questions… hehe) will arise in Part 1 of Kidman’s DLC adventure, The Assignment.
Taking the role of Kidman, The Assignment features an increased focus on stealth gameplay mechanics as you untangle the secrets of what happened to her and untangle the truth behind her connection with Mobius. Introducing new enemies and gameplay tactics, The Assignment sets the stage for the concluding chapter of Kidman’s Adventure, The Consequence, releasing later this Spring.
