It’s been a long wait, but Dontnod is finally poised to unleash the second episode of its so-far well-received Life is Strange 2. It’s coming to Xbox One, PS4, and PC on January 24th, and there’s now a launch trailer to get you in the mood.
Life is Strange 2 introduces new series protagonists Sean and Daniel Diaz, two brothers forced to go on the run following a tragic accident. Those yet to give the first episode (which debuted last September) a whirl, might want to avoid the trailer below for fear of spoilers – and, indeed, given the game’s story focus, those fully up-to-date might want to tread lightly too.
It is worth mentioning, however, that Episode 2 (titled ‘Rules’) has direct ties with Dontnod’s wonderful free side-story episode The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit, which released in June last year. Dontnod says that actions taken during Captain Spirit will have repercussions in Episode 2, so you might want to play it beforehand, if you haven’t done so already.
