Life is Strange 2 - two brothers watching a sunset

[Update]: The new Life is Strange: True Colors will be dropping the the pace-ruining episodic format.

After the massive success of both Life is Strange and its prequel Before the Storm, the series has now returned in order to try to strike gold for the third time with Life is Strange 2. However, unlike the first two games which focused on a fairly similar cast of characters, Life is Strange 2 has opted to go with an entirely different setting and entirely new characters: brothers Sean and Daniel.

While I won't go into any details in order to avoid potential spoilers, I can tell you that the two brothers will be forced to run away from home after a tragic accident. And so during their attempt to flee into Mexico they will discover a mysterious supernatural power, a power that will offer them a way towards salvation... or perhaps even further danger.

If a vague description is simply not enough for you and you don't really mind some minor spoilers, allow me to also share with you the recently posted launch trailer. It's a relatively brief video, but it should give you a good idea of what to expect from Life is Strange 2. Have a look:

For those of you that prefer the written word, however, I would recommend visiting either the official website or Steam.

That said, if you've enjoyed the previous two Life is Strange games, then I do believe you'll have a great time with Life is Strange 2 as well. Much like some of the Steam reviews point out, it does start a bit slow, but once it gets going it can really take you for an emotional ride! So if you have a bit of free time, do at least give it a closer look.
