Here’s what we know about Life is Strange 2.

Ever since the credits rolled on the teen sci-fi thriller Life is Strange, fans have been clamoring for more. And while we've known about the sequel, Life is Strange 2, for a while now, developer DONTNOD has been pretty quiet about to expect. Well, thanks to a recent reveal event, we now know a little bit more about Life is Strange 2, including the characters, setting, and some plot details. In this Life is Strange 2 Guide, we'll cover exactly what we know about Life is Strange 2 so far.

We'll be adding more to this guide as we get more info so be sure to check back for more info. In the meantime, you can read our thoughts on the Life is Strange spin-off game, here.

Life is Strange 2 Release Date

Though we don't know a whole lot about what Life is Strange 2 is about, we do know when we will get to play it. Life is Strange 2 will release September 27, 2018. It'll be released episodically, though we don't yet have a release schedule for any episodes after the pilot.

Life is Strange 2 Reveal Event

Square Enix held a reveal event for Life is Strange 2 on August 20. It let loose a ton of details on the upcoming sequel, including a look at the game's two main protagonists. You can read the details released during the event here.

Life is Strange 2 Characters, Setting, Captain Spirit

Thanks to a recent reveal, we now know that Life is Strange 2 will focus on two main characters. Sean and Daniel Diaz are two brothers living in Seattle, Washington State, when an accident involving one of the boys' powers forces them to go on the run. They are aiming for their family's hometown of Puerto Lobos, Mexico. The younger brother, Daniel can be influenced by the player's decisions, so being a good role model is key. There will be a whole new power to contend with, though we don't yet know what it is.

Life is Strange 2 New Engine

As was showcased in The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit, DONTNOD is using a new engine for Life is Strange 2. The differences are pretty substantial, and we recommend trying them out for yourself in Captain Spirit. Generally, the visuals have been significantly improved, and the character movements seem much smoother.

Life is Strange 2 Gameplay

Developer DONTNOD just released 20 minutes of Life is Strange 2 gameplay. You can check it out below, though obviously it does contain spoilers for the game.
