There are lots of things that can people but one of the most terrifying is that lurk within the darkest parts of the human mind. After the horrifying nightmares experienced in The Evil Within, the heroes have returned for more psychological punishment in The Evil Within 2.
The issue with collectibles in horror games is that you typically don’t want to spend too much time lingering in any one area for fear of drawing attention. However, if you’re hoping to complete the game fully, then you’ll need to risk it. A prominent collectible is the Locker Key and you should brace yourself because there are over 32 of them.
