On August 20, 2018, Square Enix and DONTNOD Entertainment announced the release of their new game, Life Is Strange 2. This will be the second installment in their Life Is Strange series; however, it is not a direct sequel to the original. The story will follow two brothers, Sean and Daniel Diaz, as they flee their home in Seattle after tragic events take place. Sean must lead his brother as they evade police on their way to Puerto Lobos, Mexico. The road is treacherous and the brothers will be faced with rough decisions in order to survive.

Life Is Strange 2 will feature a whole new cast of characters, multiple new settings, as well as new gameplay features and a special power. In the first Life Is Strange game the main character Max had the ability to rewind time, which allowed players to follow several different paths. It will be interesting to see what they are able to come up with for this new installment. With all the new things we are expecting to see, this is their most ambitious project yet. Here is what Michel Koch, Co-Creative Director of Life is Strange 2 at DONTNOD Entertainment had to say regarding the upcoming release.

“After the exciting adventures of Max and Chloe, we are extremely happy that you will all soon meet Sean and Daniel Diaz, our new protagonists, and follow them on their journey. We love diving back into the Life is Strange universe along with our lead writer, Jean-Luc Cano, to create our new story and characters.”

Life Is Strange 2 will be a five-episode story which will release on September 27, 2018 for Xbox One, PS4 and PC!

I was in love with the first Life Is Strange, the story was well thought out and pulled at all my heart strings. The gameplay, while simple, still kept me entertained and I felt that I was making an impact on this world. I cannot wait to see what the next installment has to offer.
