It Is What It Is is an achievement in The Evil Within.
To unlock this achievement, the player must complete the entire game without spending a single drop of Green Gel on upgrades.
- Using Green Gel during the tutorial at the start of the chapter does not void the achievement, though spending more past this point will.
- As this achievement requires the player to voluntarily gimp themselves with a bare-bones Sebastian Castellanos, playing on Casual is recommended.
- Achievement progress is counted or voided based on what upgrades Sebastian has during a playthrough, so starting a New Game+ and not upgrading anything will not unlock it.
