The Evil Within 2

The Evil Within 2 is the latest game published by Bethesda to get a free demo.

Bethesda has announced that a free trial for Tango Gameworks’ The Evil Within 2 is now available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.

The trial lets players experience the spooky opening chapters of The Evil Within 2, including the game’s linear introductory sequences, as well as a generous sampling of its open world gameplay.


Players that go on to purchase the full game will be able to carry over all save data from the trial.

Here’s a new trailer to entice you.

The Evil Within 2 is not the first Bethesda-published game to receive a free demo in recent weeks. You can also download a free trial to experience the first few levels of alternate history shooter, Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus.

And it’s not just Bethesda using this tactic to generate interest and sales, either. Both Project Cars 2, and Destiny 2, have also received substantial post-release demos in the last month.
