Life is Strange 2 Stars Two Brothers on a Dangerous Road Trip, Watch the New Trailer Here

A tale of two sons.

At Gamescom, Square Enix shared some details about Life is Strange 2 including the two protagonists leading the game, their journey, and the way choices affect the outcome of the story and how characters progress.

The game stars two brothers, Sean and Danial, with the player taking over the role of the older brother Sean. The two of them are on a journey to the west coast of Mexico and Sean's, aka the player's, choices will not only affect him but his brother Daniel as well.

One example of this is during a scene shown at a behind-closed-doors event at Gamescom where Sean steals a candy bar for his younger brother. This action will influence Daniel's behavior later on. Make enough of these choices and the way Daniel behaves will be pretty changes by journey's end presumably.

Like the first season of Life is Strange, Life is Strange 2 will be a 5-episode narrative adventure and it will be rated "M" for Mature by the ESRB.

The first Life is Strange followed art student Max Caulfield as she discovers that she has the power to rewind time. Using this ability and teaming up with her childhood friend Chloe Price, the two set out to uncover the mysterious disappearance of a classmate.

Life is Strange was followed up by Life is Strange: Before the Storm, a prequel starring Chloe Price developed by Deck Nine; as well as a free prequel to Life is Strange 2 called The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit. Captain Spirit doesn't relate directly into Life is Strange 2 and is meant to showcase the tone of the sequel.

Life is Strange 2's first episode is set to release on September 27, 2018 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Check out our Life is Strange 2 guide for even more details.
