Share your entry with the #THEEVILWITHIN2ART hashtag


Bethesda Softworks invites you to create a movie inspired poster for The Evil Within 2, the upcoming action and survival horror video game from Tango Gameworks.

From Shinji Mikami, The Evil Within 2 takes the acclaimed franchise to a new level with its unique blend of psychological thrills and true survival horror.

The story:

Sebastian Castellanos has lost everything, including his daughter, Lily. To save her, he’s forced to partner with Mobius, the shadowy group responsible for the destruction of his former life. For his last chance at redemption, the only way out is in. The game releases on Xbox One, PC, PS4 on October 13th.

Design Tips:

The winning entries will be judged by PosterSpy who will be looking for creative showcasing of the video game. You may use a broad range of styles for inspiration from street art to your own style of creating. We want to draw from the themes of the game and create something unique, bold and exciting. Be sure to check out the hi-resolution stills for inspiration, however avoid using these in your artwork.


The poster must be A3 600dpi or A2 300dpi

Please upload an RGB file in either JPEG or PNG format.

Please use the hashtag #THEEVILWITHIN2ART when sharing/posting your artwork on social media.

You may enter more than once. Please avoid using photo comps and re-creating the original key art.

The official Title Treatment is downloadable via the hi-res images tab. We do not mind if you alter this logo if it aids your design. You also are not required to use the Title Treatment if you don’t want to.
