Dontnod has finally begun to pull back the curtain on Life is Strange 2 with the game’s first full trailer.
The trailer gives us our first glimpse of the game’s new protagonists, brothers Sean and Daniel Diaz, and gives us some clues about the kinds of challenges they’ll face in the woods of Seattle, Washington.
“Following a tragic event, [the lives of Sean and Daniel] are forever changed,” the description of the game on its official blog reads. “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.”
From the last teaser and a few hints in this current trailer, it seems that the tragic event has something to do with a police shooting and—likely—some kind of supernatural powers. This event is also hinted at in The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit, the free prequel chapter to the game that released earlier this summer.
“The game will this time focus on brotherhood alongside the need to guide and educate your younger brother whilst simultaneously coming of age yourself,” the game’s description reads. Players will need to balance between being a “role model” and the lessons they decide to teach Daniel.
More gameplay from Life is Strange 2 will release over the next few days as Gamescom takes off.
The first episode of Life is Strange 2 releases on September 27th on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. The remaining four episodes will release at later dates.
