It feels oddly necessary to identify Life Is Strange 2 as a sequel. After all, we did get a new Life Is Strange adventure recently (Life is Strange: Before the Strom), but that was a prequel to the original game. There’s also the intriguing, and free, The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit, but that game is a standalone adventure that takes place in the Life Is Strange universe and seems to run parallel to the events of Life is Strange 2.
So what is Life Is Strange 2 besides a proper continuation of the original game? It’s actually the start of a whole new story about two brothers, Sean and Daniel Diaz, who are on the run from the cops after abandoning their home in Seattle. This road story sees the Diaz brothers traveling back to their hometown of Puerto Lobos, Mexico.
Does this story have any connection to Max and Chloe from the first game? Will the Diaz bros. at least pass through Arcadia Bay, Oregon during their trip? For the moment, it doesn’t sound like it but Dontnod might have some surprises up its sleeve.
