LIFE IS STRANGE 2 EPISODE 1 IS OUT NOW
SQUARE ENIX® is thrilled to announce that Life is Strange™ 2, the next entry in the critically-acclaimed and award-winning franchise from DONTNOD Entertainment, is now available. The first entry in the all-new five-episode season of Life is Strange 2, is out now on XBOX ONE®, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system and Windows PC.
Discover a story of two brothers, 16-year old Sean and 9-year old Daniel Diaz, who have to flee their home in suburban Seattle after a tragic event that changes their lives forever. Further complicating matters is the manifestation of an exciting new power that has wide implications on Sean and Daniel and the relationship between them. Things may never be the same again.
The story of Life is Strange 2 takes place over the course of a year, as Sean and Daniel try to make their way from Seattle to their fathers’ home town of Puerto Lobos, Mexico. Life on the road is difficult and there are many shades of grey; there is never a truly ‘correct choice’, there is only your choice. Daniel is watching your every move, and he is learning from your actions, so consider your decisions carefully!
The key aspect of Life is Strange 2 is this role model dynamic between the brothers. The decisions you make in Episode 1 will have far-reaching consequences and will influence the relationship with Sean’s little brother Daniel over the course of the 5-episode season.
“We are incredibly happy to finally share this new Life is Strange story of brotherhood and coming of age with the world,” said Raoul Barbet and Michel Koch – Co-Creative Directors of Life is Strange. “We hope fans will embrace our new story and characters with the same passion they showed for the first season.”

Life is Strange 2 continues the core franchise tradition of telling compelling stories about relatable characters, realistic settings and real-world issues, all laced with a supernatural element, with a new tale that tackles themes like brotherhood, raising and teaching a child, responsibility and coming of age.
