The continuing story of the new entry in the Life is Strange franchise is out, and it’s the first sign that things are getting much harder for the two brothers. The second episode of Life is Strange 2, titled Rules.
Sean and Daniel continue their journey while fleeing the desperate circumstances from episode 1, and with episode 2, things are starting to reveal just how dangerous these powers can be. We’re a few months out form the events of Episode One, Rules, and Daniel is slowly coming to terms with his abilities and learning to control them. Although judging from what I’ve seen, moments of severe distress can still trigger outbursts.
In terms of what else is different, there’s also a change in scenery. Chris and the house from the Adventures of Captain Spirit demo for Life is Strange 2 is back. Which is important because this episode can take into account Captain Spirit save games. This means that players are encouraged to have played that demo as it could have some pretty interesting story impact.
This next episode will drop on PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One on January 24th. Dontnod and Square Enix have a total of five episodes planned, meaning there are three more in the pipeline including this new one and the first.
