Life Is Strange 2: Episode 2 launches in January

Life Is Strange 2 launched on Xbox One and other platforms a few months ago, and garnered strong reviews. While it may not be as groundbreaking as the first game, it still tells a touching story.

Since September, we haven't heard much about the title, but that changed today. A few hours ago, Square Enix announced that Episode 2 should release on January 24, 2019. Hopefully the plot will pick up the pace and present players with new challenges. The live-action trailer definitely generates some hype.

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.

In Life Is Strange 2, players discover a story of two brothers, sixteen-year old Sean and nine-year old Daniel, who have to flee their Seattle home after a tragic accident that changes their lives forever. On the run from the police, Sean makes the difficult decision to take his brother and go to Mexico. As expected, life on the road is dangerous for the two boys. From what we know about the game, Life Is Strange 2 revolves around one of the children possessing telekinetic abilities. This makes them targets, but it's unclear by who.

  • Quite a bit better than #1 and BtS. I can't believe any writer actually thinks teenagers talk like the characters in those 2 games.
    LiS2 is a whole lot more polished, but its still got annoying 'look for object X' puzzles, which can be a chore, especially when the character supposedly knows exactly where the object is. The blatant politics is a bit concerning too. I play games for a bit of escapism, not to be hit over the head by writers who lack the skill to be subtle about current politics and agenda pushing.
  • So will episode 3 be constantly delayed and then quietly abandoned, like with that other game that ended with 2 Episode 2?
