The Evil Within kicks off two-part DLC story with 'The Assignment' on March 10

Last week, Bethesda offered up a teaser for The Evil Within's first story-based DLC, known as The Assignment. Today, the publisher has released some more information, a new trailer, and a firm release date of March 10.

The most interesting news to surface is that The Assignment will actually be a two-part story that centers around detective Juli Kidman. Those that played The Evil Within will recognize her as frontman Sebastian Castelanos' partner, who goes missing early in the game. This DLC will look at her side of the main narrative, revealing an all-new tale that fills in some of its gaps. Look for The Assignment to debut some new enemy types, puzzles, and horrors, while also revealing Juli's connection with the mysterious forces driving the story.

Juli's story will conclude with The Consequence, the second-half of the DLC that's set to debut later this spring. Both The Assignment and The Consequence are part of The Evil Within's Season Pass, as is an upcoming third DLC pack called 'The Executioner.' The Assignment will also be available a la carte for $9.99.

Bethesda promises further details on its Twitch channel on Friday, March 6 at 1PM PST during the first day of PAX East. In the meantime, a new trailer is available for viewing below.
