Life Is Strange 2 gets dramatic and touching launch trailer

Today, developer Dontnod Entertainment and publisher Square Enix revealed a launch trailer for Life Is Strange 2. The game follows a new cast of characters on an incredible journey across the country. The first episode is coming to Xbox One and other platforms on September 27, 2018. Just like many games nowadays, Life Is Strange 2 features Xbox One X support.

In Life Is Strange 2, players will discover a story of two brothers, sixteen-year old Sean and nine-year old Daniel Diaz, 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 if the local police is after them or someone else. We'll just have to wait a few days to find out.

The original Life Is Strange is regarded as a modern cult classic due to its voice acting, story, and characters. Hopefully Life Is Strange 2 will continue Dontnod's streak. The developer recently released Vampyr, but the title failed to garner tremendous critical acclaim. Life Is Strange 2 may change that.
