One of the best things to come out of this year's E3 is the announcement of "The Evil Within 2," which is set to be released on Friday the 13th in October. The horror video game from director Shinji Mikami and Bethesda Softworks is the sequel to the 2014 endeavor, which told the story of detective #Sebastian Castellano, who went on a mission to solve a murder while dealing with the loss of his wife and family.

In the 2014 game, he met Juli Kidman, who served as his partner detective and helped him defeat Ruvik. However, Juli isn't really what she seems, as she turned out to be a double agent working for Mobius. In the latest #story trailer released for the upcoming game, Juli narrates her journey and reveals that Sebastian's daughter, Lily is still alive.

She also has a message for Sebastian.

Juli's new mission for Sebastian

In the latest story trailer for "#The Evil Within 2," Juli provides a voice over, seemingly talking to Sebastian. She narrates how Sebastian has spent the last three years piecing together the events that occurred in the first game, and how she's ready to tell him the truth. She goes on to say that Mobius had always been following him and for a long time now and she had betrayed him after he placed his trust in her.

She admitted, "I'm sorry, but you just don't say no to them," implying that she may have been coerced to comply with the mysterious organization's wishes. Juli says, "Mobius needs you now and if you accept our offer, you'll get something in return. This isn't going to be easy but, long before we met, you lost your daughter, Lily.

I know you'll find this hard to believe, but she's still alive."

She went on to explain how the organization faked her death and used her mind to create another kind of STEM system. However, Lily has been trapped inside the STEM system and they need Sebastian to help them get her out.

Sebastian has become 'emotionally broken'

When "The Evil Within 2" arrives later this year, players may notice some stark differences between the old Sebastian and the new Sebastian. As per PlayStation Lifestyle, John Johanas explained that the main character is now "much rougher around the edges, and much more cynical" but is still committed to finding out the truth. With his despair came the battle with alcoholism, as Johanas explained that Sebastian has become "emotionally broken" after losing his family, his job, and everyone he cared about.

Now with this new mission, Sebastian must fight to save Lily and restore his place in society. Check out the story trailer below. "The Evil Within 2" is set to arrive for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on October 13.
