The Evil Within is even more scary with this headless glitch 

The Evil Within has its fair share of gore, dismemberment and scares, but this glitch takes that to a whole new level.


The game also has its fair share of bugs. I've encountered ones that were simply solved by reloading the save. This glitch is discovered by YouTube user GamebillStudio. It shows what happens if the game doesn't end when the protagonist gets his head chopped off during one sequence.

UPDATE: Publisher Bethesda got in touch to say that this is not in fact a glitch, and only occurs as a result of the user playing on God Mode, which is only available on PC.

Thanks, Kotaku.
