The Guardian in The Evil Within 2 is a menace and then some.

A menace to one’s life to be precise, what with being made up of various body parts and packing around a sawblade as a weapon. And let’s not discount the eerie laughter emanating from its mouth. Or mouths. It has three heads after all.

Lordie, The Evil Within 2 is destined to give us nightmares.

What you see in the video below was taken from a hands-on demo many outlets – including VG247 – were able to try, as well as attendees at various conferences. It takes place rather early on in The Evil Within 2.

This is the demo PAX West visitors will play this weekend should they stop by the Bethesda booth and fire up The Evil Within 2.

The sequel will feature more robust customization and crafting features, will be less linear, and players will have more than just the Guardian to contend with. There are monsters of the human variety in the game too, such as Stefano, an artist turned psycho killer who captures the moment of death.

The Evil Within 2 will be released on October 13 for PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
