DONTNOD & Square Enix reveal (and date) Life is Strange 2

This is a great day for those of us who loved Life is Strange, because after years of waiting DONTNOD has officially revealed Life is Strange 2 through both trailer and press release means. Thus, we now know who we’ll be taking control of, as well as the basis of their story.

Life is Strange 2 is the tale of 16 year-old Sean and 9 year-old Daniel Diaz, who have been forced to flee their Seattle, Washington home after a tragic event involving a shooting and at least one police officer. On the road, and out of their element, they must rely on one another to survive the trek to Puerto Lobos, Mexico.

“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”.

Everything in Life is Strange 2 is new, including a new cast of characters, multiple settings, new gameplay mechanics and a new power for players to discover.

“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.”

Life is Strange 2 will premiere, with the first of its five planned episodes, on September 27th.
