We’re deliciously close to the launch of Life is Strange 2’s second episode. It’s been a long old way, some four months since Episode 1, but in Episode 2 it looks as if things are really going to kick up a gear.
Needless to say, if you haven’t had the pleasure of playing Life is Strange 2’s first episode just yet, MASSIVE SPOILER WARNING FOR THIS TRAILER. Even for those of who have played Episode 1, there appears to quite a lot shown of Episode 2 in this footage. You have been warned...
Okay, for those of you left, here it is:
The brothers Daniel and Sean are continuing their slow journey south, this time struggling with the onset of winter and the bitter cold. They both shack up in an old couple’s house for a while, where they meet a neighbouring boy, Chris. This is where we see Life is Strange 2 tie-in to the events The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit, the free game released by Dontnod last year.
Daniel begins to learn how to use his mysterious superpowers under the tuition of Sean. They’re trying to keep a low profile and yet be ready for life on the run at the drop of a hat. Naturally enough, trouble ensues and the boys will once more be on their way.
If the second episode is much like the first though, expect there to be a ton of surprises beyond what’s been shown in the trailer. The first episode of Life is Strange 2 was a solid three hours or so long and hopefully Episode 2 is more of the same.
Life is Strange 2 Episode 2 is out on January 24th for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
