Teaser Up for Evil Within's Next Chapter; Kidman Storyline Staying Stealthy?

Juli Kidman uses a gun in the next chapter of Evil Within! Things gonna stay stealthy or get shooty?!

Bethesda’s just announced the release date (with accompanying teaser!) for The Evil Within’s second DLC The Consequence, a follow-up to The AssignmentThe Assignment just came out March 10th, so Bethesda hasn’t released many/any details yet.  The teaser doesn’t look super-informative.  We see protagonist Juli Kidman holding a gun, a surreal void, and a conspicuously placed sign for a town called Paranoia.  Juli walks forward for a couple seconds, light floods the screen, we hear a scream, then a voice-over (presumably Juli) saying, “I’m not running this time.”

What can we expect from the latest expansion of Evil Within lore?  The Assignment was around three and a half hours of gameplay; The Consequence will provide about the same.  In The Assignment, Juli’s arsenal is limited to the occasional axe, unlike Sebastian’s storyline where the player has a whole range of weapons to choose from, necessitating more stealth-based gameplay in the DLC chapters.  However, the in-engine footage in The Consequence’s teaser shows Juli carrying a gun.  It seems unlikely that Bethesda would do away with the stealth elements that made The Assignment so well-received, but Juli’s line from the teaser plus the addition of firearms suggest Juli’s methods taking a turn for the confrontational.  The Consequence will focus on Juli’s past and her motives for working with Mobius.  According to director John Johanas, The Consequence is influenced by other well-known DLCs/expansion packs such as Dishonored’s Knife of Dunwall and Brigmore Witches, Red Dead Redemption: Undead Nightmare, and Diablo 2’s Lord of Destruction.

Look for The Evil Within: The Consequence Tuesday, April 21st for Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS3, PS4, and PC!
