Bethesda Softworks has released the official trailer for the first upcoming DLC release for The Evil Within. The trailer for The Assignment is available below. In addition, Bethesda provided The Paranoid Gamer with details for upcoming DLC expansions, The Assignment and The Consequence.
The trailer features some new gameplay footage for the game expansion, which puts players into the role of the mysterious Juli Kidman from the initial game release. Kidman was posing as a junior detective working with protagonist Sebastian Castellanos. However, she appeared to be working for a shadowy, clandestine organization behind the events of the game. The trailer reveals the name of the organization is Mobius, and they task Kidman with retrieving Leslie Withers.
Juli Kidman will be the playable character in the next DLC release, The Consequence. Both The Assignment and The Consequence will feature stories concurrent to the main campaign from The Evil Within and will show Kidman’s whereabouts when she was not present during the story.
The Assignment, The Consequence, and the third DLC release The Executioner will be available with The Evil Within Season Pass, which costs $19.99, and will be available via PlayStation Network, Xbox Live and PC. The DLC expansions can also be purchased individually for $9.99. The Assignment is due out on March 10. On March 6, Bethesda will debut the first livestream of The Assignment on Twitch.TV/Bethesda at 4 pm EST.
