Life is Strange 2 Details Revealed
Dear Life is Strange fans,
You’ve waited so long for it, and it’s finally here… today we reveal everything you need to know about Life is Strange 2. The first of 5 episodes will release September 27, 2018 on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC (Steam)!
The main characters of Life is Strange 2 are brothers Sean (16) and Daniel Diaz (9), two brothers living a fairly normal life in Seattle, Washington state. Following a tragic event, their lives are forever changed. Now on the run from the police and threatened with both separation and incarceration, Sean decides to take his younger brother and seek a better life in their family’s home town of Puerto Lobos, Mexico.
Life on the road is tough and dangerous. The brothers will face all manner of challenges as they bravely undertake a journey that will test the bonds of brotherhood. Playing as Sean, you will need to make the kind of tough choices you can expect from a Life is Strange game, and you will need to live with the consequences of your actions. The game will this time focus on brotherhood alongside the need to guide and educate your younger brother whilst simultaneously coming of age yourself. As with previous games in the series, Life is Strange 2 will tackle a host of issues that all of us can identify with and that will cause moral dilemmas and require much soul searching. These themes come together most powerfully in the way Daniel will develop depending on the lessons you teach him and the role model you decide to be.
We are also really excited to confirm that Life is Strange 2 will feature a new power. What it is and how it relates to the brothers is something you will discover in due course!
As Sean and Daniel travel towards Mexico, they will meet an entirely new cast of characters and pass through numerous new settings. Life is Strange 2 will also include multiple features that will be unveiled over the course of the next week, as we strive to deliver the most ambitious Life is Strange entry with the highest production values in the game series to date. Jonathan Morali, the French composer who worked with the team on the first game, is also composing a new original soundtrack for Life is Strange 2 which will be supported by a brand new licensed soundtrack.
Watch 20mn of gameplay here:
If you previously played The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit, some of the finer details about the story and the brothers may now start falling into place. If you haven’t yet played The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit, you can download it entirely for free on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC (Steam).
Episode 1 of Life is Strange 2 will release September 27, 2018 and you can pre-order it here.
This game represents as much of a journey to us as it does to our heroes Sean and Daniel, and we can’t wait to embark on it with you 🙂
Twin Mirror – Gamescom Gameplay trailer
TWIN MIRROR core gameplay mechanics revealed
We’re happy to reveal during Gamescom 2018, two core gameplay features for our psychological thriller Twin Mirror!
Watch the trailer:
Sam Higgs is a guy with a lot of problems. He’s back in the hometown that he fled, his best friend from that same town recently died, and, to top it all off, he just woke up from a rough night with no memory of what happened, and a shirt covered in blood. A bad day is about to get a lot worse.
On the brighter side, Sam has a secret asset. Ever since he was young, he’s trained and honed an ability to go into a secret place in his mind. A place where he can perfectly re-create the real world and run scenarios to understand it better. This is Sam’s mind palace, a reflection of his life and experiences.
The mind palace is a powerful tool that blends memories with logical extrapolation. By investigating his hotel room and using his mind palace to re-create his activities from the night before, Sam might be able to fill in the blanks in his evening.
One caveat, though, there’s someone else who wants to weigh in on Sam’s investigation. Someone who has been popping up when he starts to delve into the past: a glib, well-dressed version of Sam who is full of questionable advice. Sam thinks of him as “The Double.” This slick character always has a sarcastic aside to insert into Sam’s train of thought. In Twin Mirror, you’ll have to judge if the Double is putting you on the right track, or if he’s trying to derail you for his own purposes.
Don’t get too comfortable. Sam may not realize it yet, but there could be much more at stake in Basswood than a forgotten night, and his investigation skills may be pushed to their limits before it’s all said and done. It’ll be a tough journey, but it just might be what he needs to finally heal the wounds of the past and move forward.
The truth is out there, and Sam’s mind is the only place you’ll find it. The narrative adventure will be an episodic game composed of three parts, the first of which, “Lost On Arrival”, will be available in 2019 on PS4, Xbox One and Steam.
