The Executioner is the third DLC of The Evil Within. Set as first-person battle matches, the player takes control of a Keeper and faces many creatures and characters from the game. As enemies are defeated, coins are collected to purchase new weapons and upgrades.
The story is focused on an unknown man who is linked to MOBIUS, is connected to the STEM, and is in control of a safe headed creature known as The Keeper. The player is in search of his daughter and must follow diaries to understand the truth. The Keeper is also given orders by MOBIUS to eliminate the other subjects within the Mansion and other locations due to their effect on his daughter.
It is revealed that most of the creatures within Ruvik's world were once patients and test subjects, twisted by the experiments of STEM. As the player kills them, the daughter's own mental degradation slows, only to suddenly pick up again, even quicker than before, which MOBIUS eventually realizes is due to the father himself reading her notes. Upon finding the daughter, a dark form detaches from the player and takes the form of the Dark Keeper, who puts her in a cage to exist within the STEM forever. The player must then destroy the Dark Keeper's head safe, damaging his own in the process until both are destroyed.
After defeating the Dark Keeper, you are released from your connection to the STEM. The last scene shows the daughter standing next to the unknown man in overalls laying in the STEM tube, now at peace and possibly surviving the mental trauma of his self-induced separation.
The gameplay is rather simple. You hit enemies with your weapons enough until they are dead or are unable to move. When the are unable to move you follow out the Execution by using a finishing blow. Most of the time when you kill enemies they drop tokens to collect, so you can use them to buy things in the shop. When you're not fighting enemies, you're smashing boxes trying to collect tokens as well.
Other then that, you mainly go around kicking down doors and using your special search sense to find hidden secrets. You also have collectibles as well, only three types this time however. The first, being your daughter's diary pages, the second, being journal pages from the other subjects in STEM with you, and the third, being mission directives from Mobius.

Execution Chambers Edit
Execution chambers are small challenges throughout the DLC. They are presented as portals, and once inside, The Keeper must elimate a set amount of enemies using a combinations of weapons and traps throughout the room. They are presented as a good way to get memory tokens. The enemies are:
First boss: Sadist ( Very Easy)
Second boss: Zehn (Easy)
Third boss: Joseph Oda (Medium)
Fourth boss: Amalgam Alpha (Medium)
Fifth boss: RPG Sadist (Medium)
Final boss: Dark Keeper (Hard)
Secret boss: Sebastian Castellanos (Very Hard)
Upon staring a New Game+, the Final Execution Chamber is made available near the end of the game in the mental patient ward. Inside, swarms of enemies will attack, along with several bosses from earlier. The Sadist will come first, followed by Zehn on his defeat. After Zehn is defeated, both the Sadist and RPG Sadist will attack. After their defeat, the Haunted will no longer spawn, but Joseph and Sebastian must be faced together.
There are 3 kinds of collectables your Daughter's Diaries, Mobius Directives and Torments.
Daughter's Diaries Edit
are diaries from your daughter written to you to give some direction to where you´re going.
1 - ``Dad,
The doctor said you were going to come help me. Are you ever going to get here? There are monsters all over the place. I'm going crazy. ``
2 - ``Are all these other people alive? Are they dead? ``
3 - `` I saw some guy killing the monsters! I think I should go meet him and see what happens. He might know Dad. But just in case he's a creep I'm going to leave my letters and stuff here.``
4 - `` That guy said he was a killer and that his job was to kill monsters. He said that he was collecting those weird tokens and made me look for them, but when I tried to put one in my pocket he started screaming and got this scary look in his eyes. He might kill me if I try to run away, he might kill me if I don't.``
5 - ``Is everyone going to turn into a monster?
There was a tall guy I walked with for a while because he was lost. He said he couldn't remember where he came from.
He was always talking to his brother even though you couldn't see him. He started to freak me out so I got out of there. Then he started chasing me and, when I looked back, he was turning into one of those things.
Is that going to happen to me? This place is so weird. Everything from before I came here seems like a long time ago.``
6 - ``How did I get here anyway? I try to think, but I can't remenber. I think it was therapy, but Dad and I fought about it? He said that Ruben guy might be able to help me, but he didn't trust him. But I had to try.``
7 - ``I'm all right. The guy with glasses didn't look like anyone I should be talking to. I can still hear his laughter in my head. I don't think he knew who he was anymore. I think the trick to keeping my mind together is to think about all the stuff I'm going to do when I get out of here.``
8 -``What was my doctor doing here? I saw him walk down the hall.``
9 -``I know I must have seen all kinds of scary things, but I can't remember, so I don't feel scared at all.``
10 -``I don't know what to do. I keep forgetting Mom and Dad's names. It's happened like five times now... I can't believe I'd forget something like that. I should tattoo them on my arm or something.``
11 - `` Hey doctor, do you know my Dad?``
12 -``The shaking won't stop. I can't remember Dad's face. I'm slowly forgetting who I am. There are all those monsters around. It's like I don't even care if they get me anymore. But at least I want to see Dad one last time.``
13 -``Where did the doctor go? Everyone's gone.``
14 -``Something is getting closer. I can feel it. I guess this is it. Sorry, Dad. I know you tried.``
