Life is Strange 2 is a roadtrip story starring two young brothers

Max surprise.

Life is Strange 2 will swap the small town America setting of its original season and the powerful narrative of friendship between two teenage girls for something very different - a roadtrip tale set along the West coast of America starring two young brothers.

As 16-year-old Sean Diaz you must look after your younger sibling Daniel as you survive while on the run - after "a tragic event that changes their lives forever".

Tonight, on the eve of Gamescom 2018 in Cologne, co-directors Raoul Barbet and Michel Koch fully introduced the new setting and stars to an audience of invited media. Eurogamer was in attendance to see a chunk of the game - although you'll have to wait just a little longer for us to be able to publish our initial impressions.

For now, thanks to fun embargo shenanigans, we can but point you to the newly-released trailer and screenshots below:


As previously announced, Life is Strange 2's first episode will launch on 27th September for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Dying Light 2 will take "at least" 500 hours to complete, says Techland

"But a regular player should finish the story + side quests in less than 100 hours, so don't worry!"

BioWare "laser-focused on building back the trust of our fans and community"

And the next Dragon Age will be a "single-player experience that is built on choices that matter".

Elden Ring overtakes Dying Light 2 to become Steam's most wishlisted game

And in doing so, it knocks Dying Light 2 off its 12-month long streak.
