Square Enix External Studios and Dontnod Entertainment are excited to share the launch trailer for Life is Strange 2 Episode 2.
The second episode of Life is Strange 2 is titled ‘Rules’ and will release digitally worldwide this Thursday, January 24th, 2019, for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC/Steam.
Episode 2 picks up a few months after the events of the first episode, as Sean and Daniel are on the run from the police following the tragic incident in Seattle and the manifestation of a strange supernatural power. Things are getting tougher as the seasons have changed and the winter cold is setting in.
The power takes a central position in the story as Daniel is slowly coming to terms with his abilities. The brothers have to practice Daniel’s control over his powers so he can be less of a danger to himself and others, but at the same time, they also have to hide his abilities from a world that won’t understand.
They have come to an agreement on a set of rules for how Daniel uses his abilities in order to keep them hidden: Never in public. Never talk about it. Run from danger. However, can a 9-year old really follow the rules?
The much loved Captain Spirit returns in Episode 2 of Life is Strange 2. It’s recommended that players complete The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit™, as Episode 2 takes into account Captain Spirit save games. Actions taken in Captain Spirit will have repercussions in Episode 2. The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit is available 100% free on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC/Steam.
Life is Strange 2 Episode 2: ‘Rules’, will release on January 24, 2019, on Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation 4 computer entertainment system and Windows PC.
Square Enix is excited to announce the release date for the second episode of the all-new five-episode season from Square Enix External Studios and Michel Koch and Raoul Barbet’s Life is Strange team at Dontnod Entertainment.
Gonzalo Martin, the voice of Sean Diaz, stars in a live-action visualisation of a pivotal moment on the brothers’ journey in Life is Strange 2.
Sean and Daniel’s story continues in Episode 2. On the run from the police following a tragic incident in Seattle and the manifestation of a strange supernatural power, Sean and Daniel Diaz continue their journey into the winter months. As the two brothers struggle against the cold, Daniel gets increasingly ill. Sean decides that they must take the risk and make their way to their distant grandparent’s house to recover and seek shelter.
There, they encounter next-door neighbour Chris Eriksen, a young boy who believes he has powers eerily similar to Daniel’s, and they come face to face with his superhero alter ego, Captain Spirit.
As Daniel and Chris are becoming fast friends, it’s up to Sean to make sure Daniel follows a set of rules they agreed on for his power: Never in public. Never talk about it. Run from danger.
Can Daniel successfully hide the truth from the people around them, will the temptation to explore the immense power within him be too much, or will he break the rules in a time of need?
“Life is Strange 2 got off to a strong start, but the best is yet to come. Episode 2 is going to be a great moment for this season” said Jon Brooke, Co-Head of Studio at Square Enix External Studios. “Previous seasons have both had a point that was just, ‘that moment’, that captivated fans from all over the world, and we feel like this will be the one for Life is Strange 2.”
“The reaction to Episode 1 has been fantastic and it has been great to read all the comments and feedback from players” said Michel Koch and Raoul Barbet, Co-Creators of Life is Strange 2. “So many people are falling in love with Sean and Daniel, and we’ve only just begun their journey. There’s so much more to come in Life is Strange 2.”
