That's clearly shown in the game's latest trailer, which introduces the twisted and deadly photographer, Stefano Valentini.
Stefano's "work" can be seen around The Evil Within 2 as he creates grisly, violent scenes of the victims whose lives he takes with callous disregard.
Check out the trailer above to get to know Stefano - Bethesda say he's "an artist with dark proclivities and unbounded imagination" fond of making "moment of death" tableaus that capture the last seconds of a person's life - their most handsome and vulnerable, in his view - in a tangible, looping scene.
Stefano was once a war photographer who lost he eye in an explosion, and hasn't been right in the head since. But the real world could never appreciate his talents. He lost an eye, but gained a "vision" that left him obsessed with the moment of death-"that split second in time when people are, in his opinion, at their most open and most lovely". Naturally, rather than waiting for those moments, Stefano took it upon himself to control those moments, becoming a serial killer in the process. Also, Sebastian's daughter, Lily, is vital to unlocking his further potential.
The STEM world caters to Stefano's desires, and his greatest creation is Obscura (above), a creature sculpted from blood, bone and flesh.
The Evil Within 2 comes out on October 13, which is a Friday.
