Episode 2 of Life is Strange 2 will launch this Thursday, January 24 on Xbox One, Playstation 4 and PC via Steam. Daniel and Sean must struggle through this winter-themed story, as they struggle to get to their grandparent’s house to recover. But that’s only the beginning. Sean and Daniel Diaz are back, a few months after the events of the first episode, as the brothers are now on the run from law enforcement.
The power takes a central position in Episode 2, as Daniel is slowly coming to terms with his supernatural abilities. The brothers must attempt to find the balance between practicing Daniel’s control of his power, while also hiding his abilities from a world that won’t understand. Guiding them is a set of rules they’ve set for themselves: Never in public. Never talk about it. Run from danger.
“One of the main themes in Life is Strange 2 is coming-of-age, and the rules you sometimes have to follow, or break, when you’re on the run like Sean and Daniel is. In this episode, the power will be a very interesting element the brothers will have to deal with. It allows us to create compelling situations that will evolve the relationship between the two brothers. We can’t wait for the players to discover the new environments and characters the brothers will meet in this episode.” said Michel Koch and Raoul Barbet, Co-Creators and Directors of Life is Strange 2. “And of course, we are really happy to give the players the chance to meet Chris again, our beloved lead character in The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit. We strongly advise the fans to play this game before playing Episode 2, as the experience will be more enjoyable. Also, it’s free!”
