Life is Strange 2 Announced, Episode One Release Date Revealed

A surprise reveal.

Life is Strange 2, the proper sequel to Dontnod's first season of Life is Strange, is coming to Xbox One, PS4, and PC on September 27, 2018.

Life is Strange 2 is a sequel to the first season of Life is Strange which came out in 2015. The first season followed Max Caulfield, a teenage art student whose world begins to turn upside down once she reunites with her childhood friend, Chloe Price, and begins investigating the disappearance of a local student.

The surprise reveal doesn't reveal much, just the logo etched into what looks like a worn out messenger bag. It will be a five-episode season.

Deck Nine developed a prequel series called Life is Strange: Before the Storm which followed Chloe before the events of the first game. The first episode came out on August 2017. Dontnod took point on an upcoming free episode set in the Life is Strange universe called The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit, which is coming out for free next week. Captain Spirit is a prequel to Life is Strange 2, but will not tie-in directly to the events of the sequel.
