Following yesterday’s reveal of Life is Strange 2‘s first trailer, developer Dontnod Entertainment and Square Enix have teamed up to give fans a more in-depth look at the game. They said that gameplay would be “arriving soon,” but we had no idea “soon” would literally be the next day. Specifically, a 20-minute chunk that highlights the set up of Life is Strange 2 and day-to-day life in Seattle.
As we know from yesterday’s trailer, Life is Strange 2 is the story of Sean and Daniel Diaz on the run from the law following a fatal encounter with police. While only brief glimpses alluded to this initially, the new gameplay footage shows the lead-up to that deadly encounter. Things go from normal and suburban to a near war zone in the blink of an eye, underscoring how out of sorts both Diaz brothers are in the situation.
Life is Strange 2 was rumored to be in development ever since late 2015, and was hinted at being a follow-up to the spin-off title The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit. The game ultimately revealed in late-June that the sequel would be coming this year and would be making waves at Gamescom.
As mentioned previously, the first episode of Life is Strange 2 will be heading to PC, PS4, and Xbox One on September 27, 2018. Check out 20 minutes of gameplay in the video below, and make sure to pre-order the game via Amazon if it peaks your interest:
