The Evil Within was one of the most hyped releases for 2014. Published by Bethesda Games, the company teased The Assignment--the first of three DLCs-- that is scheduled to launch in early 2015.

John Johanas recently discussed some of the influences that he has put into The Assignment with Bethblog.

"I'm actually a big DLC guy so I struggled a lot in early planning with which direction to take it in," Johanas stated.

"How many levels and what's the pacing? Do we add new weapons or mechanics? Since we decided early on the character was going to be Kidman, I wanted the DLC to play different rather than having it feel like just a character skin.

My favorite DLCs have been ones that give the player a new spin on gameplay, while still feeling connected to the main title."

He added, "Some notable DLC's that may or may not have influenced things: 1. Dishonored: The Knife of Dunwall/ the Brigmore Witches, 2. Enslaved: Pigsy's Perfect 10, 3. Red Dead Redemption: Undead Nightmare, 4. Diablo 2: Lord of Destruction."

The Evil Within: The Assignment will be the story of Juli Kidman, who was Detective Castellanos' partner in the original title.

The Evil Within Season Pass is available for $19.99. For more about the horror game, visit its official website here.
