With The Evil Within 2‘s launch just around the corner, it’s not too much of a surprise to learn that the game’s trophy list has leaked prior to the official release. Although the trophies don’t reveal too much about the game’s plot, the subtle references to the story or characters involved in it might still spoil the experience slightly for the more dedicated of fans so we’d advise gamers to proceed at their own risk.
The Evil Within 2 will have a grand total of 52 trophies to unlock (1 Platinum, 1 Gold, 14 Silver, and 36 Bronze). Should a player take the time to discover every trophy in the game, they will be earning a significant 1230 points for their collection, but some of the trophy descriptions suggest that this won’t be easily accomplished even for the more experienced of players.
Of course there are traditional achievements that have made the cut, such as completing the game on various difficulty levels, upgrading weapons, and obtaining collectables, but The Evil Within 2‘s trophy list also holds some very intriguing sounding challenges for players to complete.

Although the first Evil Within title did hold positive review scores and was seen by many to be an underrated gem, one of the biggest criticisms of the action/horror game was an unlikable main character and a fairly weak story. Thankfully, it seems that Bethesda has learned from its mistakes this time round and although Sebastion Castellanos is returning as the game’s lead, the title will have much more focus on story in the upcoming sequel.
Although the abundance of trailers Bethesda has released so far do look to offer a more promising experience in The Evil Within 2, several fans still worry that the series won’t be the same without famous director Shinji Mikami at the helm. Known for his work on Resident Evil, and of course the first The Evil Within title, Mikami’s exclusion could impact the horror game in a big way, although it’s worth noting that new director John Johanas has plenty of experience with the series too.
The Evil Within 2 releases October 13, 2017 for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
