Pre-order The Evil Within and you'll receive The Fighting Chance Pack free, Bethesda has announced.

The Fighting Chance Pack provides players with a selection of items designed to give players a better chance of surviving.

  • Medical Kit – A vital health enhancement to enable Sebastian to fight on.
  • Green Gel – Used to upgrade Sebastian's attributes.
  • Double Barrel Shotgun and Three Shells - A larger and more formidable shotgun than the regular shotgun, it's useful for tight situations with multiple encroaching enemies.
  • An Incendiary Agony Bolt – Capable of showering nearby enemies with damaging fire sparks.
  • A Poison Agony Bolt – Will draw enemies towards it and poison them, allowing Sebastian time for a quick escape.

A brand new trailer has also been released, using real player reactions to get across the scares the game can deliver.

The Evil Within will be released October 24 for Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS4, PS3 and PC. That's two months later than originally announced, but thankfully the game appears to be well worth the wait, as Steve Burns explains in his latest hands-on preview.

So, the gel could make you a bit tougher (Presumably), the shotgun and bolts can get rid of about 5, maybe 6 enemies, and then the health kit will probably *have* to be used due to some contrived cut-scene, or *****-up meaning you take damage.

Why do I have the feeling that this will only get you out of the first encounter of multiple of enemies, then be useless?
