First Trailer for Life is Strange 2 Reveals New Characters and Powers

The first Life is Strange game wowed gamers with the visceral, moving storytelling no one could’ve seen coming.  Since then, the episodic series has branched off to tell other stories, with Before the Storm and The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit, each delivering as well as the original title.  Now, Square Enix and DONTNOD have moved on from the story of Max and Chloe to the mystery swirling around brother Sean and Daniel Diaz.  

The Diaz brothers find themselves on a long journey to Mexico, from Seattle, that has them making tough decisions on a dangerous road.  Here is the first trailer for Life is Strange 2.


Discover a story of two brothers, 16-year old Sean and 9-year old Daniel Diaz, who have to flee their home in suburban Seattle after a tragic event that changes their lives forever. On the run from the police, Sean makes a difficult decision; to take his brother and go to Puerto Lobos, Mexico. Life on the road is dangerous and the brothers will be faced with tough decisions as they bravely undertake a journey that will test the bonds of brotherhood.

Life is Strange 2 will feature new characters, new settings, a new soundtrack from original Life is Strange composer Jonathan Morali, and new powers to discover throughout the journey.  All these new features and this brand new story has the developers giddy with excitement…

“The release of Captain Spirit was a great moment for the team and we can’t wait to introduce the players to the new story and characters of Life is Strange 2” said Raoul Barbet Co-Creative Director of LIFE IS STRANGE 2 at DONTNOD Entertainment. “We have worked hard with the original team to keep what I personally loved to craft in the first game: the mood, the cinematographic work and of course, the music.”
“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.” said Michel Koch, Co-Creative Director of LIFE IS STRANGE 2 at DONTNOD Entertainment. “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”.
Speaking of Captain Spirit, if you haven’t yet played it, it looks like details about the Diaz brothers are connected to that story.  At least, that’s what the new Life is Strange blog entry says.  So, that means it’s high time you picked up the free game, before September 27, 2018 when Life is Strange 2 makes its way to Xbox One and Playstation 4!
