The Evil Within 2 is coming around real soon this October 13 and everyone is really excited for it.
This time the series introduces two seemingly human characters with special powers who are against Sebastian, Stefano Valentini and Father Theodore. The former being a crazed photographer with an obsession for exhibiting death as an art, the latter being a mysterious priest heavily associated with fire and has an agenda of his own.
The newest story trailer of The Evil Within 2 focuses on Father Theodore.
From this trailer, it is apparent that Father Theodore has some form of Messiah Complex but he will not hesitate to use any means necessary in order to achieve his goals. From the trailer, we can see him offer Sebastian a deal by promising him paradise and threatening to burn anyone who will not follow. Like Stefano Valentini, Father Theodore is also after Sebastian’s daughter, Lily Castellanos.
Earlier today, we got an email from Bethesda themselves going deeper into Father Theodore as a character.
This is what we got from Bethesda’s email to us:
Theodore has his own reasons for being in STEM that are separate from Mobius’ goals, which he sees as misguided. Though what he’s actually after only becomes apparent as Sebastian becomes more entangled in his world. Like Stefano, Theodore isn’t alone in STEM, although unlike Stefano – who commands the gruesome and terrifying Guardian and Obscura – Theodore’s main helpers aren’t creatures he created. Referred to as Harbingers, they are normal people whose minds Theodore has bent to his will. These Harbingers wield flamethrowers and seem to exist solely to carry out Theodore’s fiery will, burning any who would stand in the way of his pursuits.[/alert]
We are looking forward to learning more about Father Theodore and the other characters by playing the Evil Within 2. Stay tuned for more news with Sirus Gaming!
The Evil Within 2 is expected to launch next month on October 13 across PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
