What appears to be a leaked schedule of DLC for Soul Sacrifice has appeared on AGB. It shows what will land on PSN May 28, June 11 and June 25. Looking around the Internet a bit, a couple more sites cite NeoGAF as the source of the leak, but there isn’t a link back to the forum so I can’t find it to glean more information. The June 25 DLC on the schedule is the same DLC which releases in Japan for free next week, so while it looks legitimate, I’ll keep the rumor tag on it. See for yourself through the links.

Soul Sacrifice is out in Japan, and on May 2, free DLC containing two new enemies will arrive on the Japanese PS Store. The enemies are Ghost and Ouroboros, and players can use new forbidden art into an Angel in order to defeat them. It will cost them their bones though, apparently. They will also move slower, but their angelic wings can wound enemies and the form can also heal allies. Trailers for the content are below alongside new artwork. The Vita title lands in the US on April 30 and in Europe on May 1. Via: DualShockers, AGB.

Shinji Mikami has said there are very few true survival horror games any more, and that’s why The Evil Within won’t hand you an assault rifle and let you mow down your foes.

Remember the unsettling live-action trailer that appeared last week to promote Shinji Mikami’s The Evil Within? Of course you do; it was goose-bump-inducingly good. It turns out the reason that it was so effective is that it was directed by Kyle Cooper, a veteran director who has created “over 150 film title sequences”, including The Walking Dead, Se7en and American Horror Story.
The Evil Within is set for PC, 360, PS3 and next generation consoles in 2014. In case you’ve not yet seen the trailer, you can catch it through the break.

You remember how important light was in Amnesia: The Dark Descent – or maybe you don’t because you sensibly dissociated and buried the memories forever. It looks like light’s going to play a major rolle in followup Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs, too, if these almost unbelievably dark screenshots are anything to go by.
