The first story DLC for Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikami's horror game The Evil Within is now available across console and PC. The expansion is called "The Assignment," and it represents the first in a two-part story that will be followed by "The Consequence" sometime this spring.

In The Assignment, gamers get to play as Juli Kidman instead of the main campaign's hero Sebastian Castellanos. Kidman is played by Dexter actress Jennifer Carpenter.

The Assignment's story runs concurrently to the main campaign, and should answer some of the questions fans might have regarding Kidman's whereabouts during The Evil Within.

The DLC introduces "disturbing" new enemies, as well as more mysteries--and horrors, of course--to uncover.

Together with The Consequence, the two-part expansion will dive into "Kidman's hidden motivations and her mysterious connection to Mobius, the shadowy group thought to be behind the gruesome events of The Evil Within."

The Assignment and The Consequence, as well as an upcoming expansion called The Executioner, are included with The Evil Within's $20 DLC pass. Interestingly, The Executioner flips the game on its head, allowing you to play as the bad guy.

Alternatively, all three adds-ons can be purchased individually for $10 each. But if you're sure you want all three, buying the pass is the economical choice.

The Evil Within is available today for PC, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation 4. For more, check out GameSpot's review.
