Ready for more survival horror?

With a few days of release under its belt, positive reviews for The Evil Within’s newest DLC, The Consequence, have made their way online. In particular, reviewers are highlighting the game’s storyline, chilling atmosphere, and memorable boss battles.

Highlights include:

Game Revolution (8/10) — “The Evil Within’s story can be hard to follow with all its moving parts and multi-dimensional layers. But there are a lot of fans out there, including myself, who find it fascinating. If you’re one of these people, The Consequence is a must-play as it addresses questions left unanswered at the end of the the main story by allowing you to see what happens from Juli Kidman’s perspective. Things are not as they seem.”

Bloody Disgusting (8/10) — The Evil Within had some memorable bosses, but there are a few here that give them a run for their money. The final boss is just good enough to make me think the whole point of Juli’s story was so Mikami could swoop in and finish it off with a bang.

Videogamer.com (8/10) — Its conclusion is at least as satisfying as that found in the main game, and probably more so given the revelations it contains.

God is a Geek (8/10) — “The Consequence wreaks havoc on the nerves…”

Take Action with The Evil Within’s Newest DLC

But remember: every action has consequences!

Find out Juli Kidman’s fate in The Evil Within: The Consequence — available today across all the main game’s platforms for $9.99.

If you’ve played The Evil Within’s first DLC, you know Kidman is precariously stuck between completing her assignment from the Mystery Man of Mobius or staying loyal to Sebastian and Joseph. The Consequence picks up right where The Assignment left off and provides a balance of stealth-action and gunplay. That’s right – this time Juli’s packing heat.

Haven’t played The Assignment yet? Double dip on your Kidman quests by purchasing The Evil Within’s Season Pass for $19.99. The pass will give you access to both released DLCs, as well as the upcoming download, The Executioner.
