Back in 2015 the entire world went mad for the narrative surrounding photography student, Max, and her friend Chloe in Life is Strange. It was such a success in fact that it won awards galore and spawned the arrival of Life is Strange: Before the Storm. Now though Square Enix and Dontnod Entertainment are ditching the girls for an all new tale – one of brothers Sean and Daniel Diaz in Life is Strange 2.
Life is Strange 2 sees the two brothers head off to Mexico, running from the police as they attempt to keep a mysterious supernatural power under wraps. The problem is, doing so isn’t the easiest thing in the world and it isn’t long before the actions taken by the duo begin to impact on their lives… forever more.
If you had previously been wowed by the adventures found in the original Life is Strange, got taken in by Before the Storm, or even enjoyed the freebie that was set in this same universe – The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit – then chances are you’ll think that Square Enix and Dontnod Entertainment are on to a bit of a winner once more with Life is Strange 2.
Promising a stunning tale and some superb visuals that are accompanied by choices galore, Life is Strange 2 comes in a few different forms. Which you decide to take up will all depend on how deep you are wishing to go with the story.
The smart money must go on the Complete Season of Life is Strange 2 for £32.49 as that will ensure you get access to Episode 1 right now, with all future parts dropping as and when they release. That said, if you wish to dip your toes in the water first, then a £6.79 purchase of the initial episode can be followed up by the £26.79 Episode 2-5 Bundle.
Personally, the former seems to be the way to go but the decision is, as they say, completely yours. Just make sure you let us know which route you take! The comments section is down below. Whatever you decide though, chances are Life is Strange 2 will be an experience you won’t want to miss.
