Square Enix released a new trailer ahead of the launch of the Dontnod’s narative adventure Life is Strange 2, coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on September 27.
Released as individual episodes, Life is Strange 2: Roads will focus on the two new main characters to the series, brothers Sean and Diaz, age 16 and 9, respectively. The two siblings run away from home following an incident at their home in Seattle. Their plan is to head to Mexico and conceal a mysterious supernatural power that they discovered.
There will be a total of 5 episodes, each continuing the story of Sean and Diaz’ adventure until the conclusion. However, Life is Strange 2 leaves many decisions up to the player by allowing them to choose dialog during conversations and crucial forks in their quest that can alter their future.
Life is Strange 2 is a sequel to 2015’s Life is Strange which stared a high school girl named Max Caulfield who has the ability to rewind time. This meant that choices did weigh as heavily because if their player didn’t like the outcome they could just rewind and go another path.
You can watch the new trailer below which shows gameplay and gives a preview of what players can expect to see during this truly dramatic title:
Author’s take: I’m glad to see that Dontnod didn’t make the sequel starring the same characters of the first game. I feel like Max’s story has been told and I can’t wait to learn more about this universe that seems to have real-life superheroes just waiting to discover their powers.
