Square Enix has released a special live-action trailer for the second episode of Life is Strange 2, which had been previously confirmed to come out sometime in January 2019. The trailer reveals the specific release date for the episode: Jan. 24, 2019.
The episode is titled “Rules,” and we have a synopsis of the episode, as provided in a press release. However, we do suggest skipping out on reading it if you’d like to go in blind:
Sean and Daniel’s story continues in Episode 2. On the run from the police following a tragic incident in Seattle and the manifestation of a strange supernatural power, Sean and Daniel Diaz continue their journey into the winter months. As the two brothers struggle against the cold, Daniel gets increasingly ill. Sean decides that they must take the risk and make their way to their distant grandparent’s house to recover and seek shelter.
There, they encounter next-door neighbor Chris Eriksen, a young boy who believes he has powers eerily similar to Daniel’s, and they come face to face with his superhero alter ego, Captain Spirit.
As Daniel and Chris are becoming fast friends, it’s up to Sean to make sure Daniel follows a set of rules they agreed on for his power: Never in public. Never talk about it. Run from danger.
Can Daniel successfully hide the truth from the people around them, will the temptation to explore the immense power within him be too much, or will he break the rules in a time of need?
Watch the live-action trailer, which stars Gonzalo Martin, the voice of Sean Diaz, below. The second episode of Life is Strange 2 will be released on Jan. 24, 2019, for PlayStation 4, PC and Xbox One. In the meantime, revisit our review of the first episode and get excited for what’s in store for the Diaz brothers.
