Get Ready for Life is Strange 2 Ahead of Its Release
Despite being a week away from its release, Square Enix and Dontnod have dropped the official launch trailer early for Life is Strange 2, their anticipated sequel to the hit episodic series. You can gawk at it below.
Episode one, titled “Roads,” launches digitally next week on September 27th for Xbox One, PS4, and PC/Steam. The first episode was originally titled “Seattle” but it appears that it received a last minute name change. Players can pre-order now and receive exclusive content. Similar to the first season, the second season will also be five episodes long with each one releasing periodically throughout 2018.
“We have been working on Life is Strange 2 since the launch of the last episode of the first season,” revealed Dontnod in the press release. “We are so excited to tell our new story of Sean and Daniel Diaz, two brothers from suburban Seattle.”
Below is a detailed synopsis of the game:
“After a tragic event forces the brothers on the run from the police, their relationship is tested by the dangers they face in a life on the road, and the manifestation of a supernatural power they don’t understand and can’t fully control.
The 5-episode season will follow Sean and Daniel over the course of a year as they make their way from Seattle to Mexico. Their journey is long and the brothers are woefully unprepared, as they have to set off with very little money and only the items Sean happens to have on him at the time.
They can steal to survive or take the high road and go without essential supplies for the trip. Either way, what are Sean’s actions teaching Daniel? Now totally responsible for his much younger brother, Sean begins to realize that his decisions will impact their lives forever…”
