LOS ANGELES, Oct. 20, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Chandler Riggs, best known for his role as Carl Grimes on The Walking Dead, will play The Evil Within 2 on Xbox Live Sessions, an interactive livestream hosted on the Mixer Xbox Channel. The livestream will take place on Saturday, October 21st, so fans should expect an extra spooky night of Xbox gaming.
