The Score (80)

Published on Sunday, March 1, 2015

Does the following remind you of home life? “Trapped on an island prison, two heroes must fight to survive” Or perhaps this reminds you of most weekends? “A father searches for his daughter. Mysteries and monsters at every turn”. If so, dear reader, you’ve arrived at the right place this Sunday afternoon, for welcome to The Score, your weekly round-up of all the horror gaming news you can digest without the need for alcohol and Gaviscon. This week brought the release of Resident Evil Revelations 2 Episode 1, which actually looks pretty good, story information for PS4 exclusive Bloodborne, more zombie sniping from Rebellion, a live action Dying Light short (and the physical release of the game), DLC details for the next Evil Within chapter, and news that Slender Man himself will be climbing inside current gen consoles in order to stare at you through the TV until you go utterly insane (or put something else on). What’s more, we end with a f2p zombie apocalypse survival sim which is absolutely deserving of your time this weekend (to hell with the kids!) Enjoy!

The Evil Within - The Assignment Official Gameplay Trailer

For many that have completed The Evil Within, the mysteries surrounding Sebastian’s partner, Juli Kidman, are among the most discussed plotlines in the game. These questions (and new questions) will arise in Part 1 of Kidman’s DLC adventure, The Assignment.

Taking the role of Kidman, The Assignment features an increased focus on stealth gameplay mechanics as you untangle the secrets of what happened to her and untangle the truth behind her connection with Mobius. Introducing new enemies and gameplay tactics, The Assignment sets the stage for the concluding chapter of Kidman’s Adventure, The Consequence, releasing later this Spring.

The Evil Within: The Assignment can also be purchased separately for $9.99 on Tuesday, March 10th on Xbox One, PC, and Xbox 360. European users will be able to play on PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 beginning on Wednesday, March 11th.

Safe House?

How would you survive the zombie apocalypse? A simple question to mull over while amending the same spreadsheet you’ve been working on for the last couple of years. A simple question without a simple answer. No doubt you’d like to imagine the onset of the undead war would magically transform you into the zombie slaying hero you know you’ve always been, giving life to the side of you hidden away all these years patiently waiting to make a spectacular entrance when the time is right. Perhaps you see yourself as a hardened loner who’d walk the decimated planet bringing peace to the reanimated corpses as you encountered them. Or perhaps you imagine yourself integrating into a group of fellow survivors not unlike the characters from The Walking Dead, relying on each other to protect the group whilst traversing a seemingly endless train track? Whatever your ideal self-image, the truth of the matter is you’d most likely shat your pants and barricade yourself in your home praying that the nasty flesh munchers fail to smell you. But alas, dear readers, that option comes with more peril than you’d imagine. Try it for yourself…
