Life Is Strange is big business these days, with DONTNOD’s slice of life series spawning tons of merchandise and now multiple games. In the aftermath of last year’s prequel Before the Storm, all eyes are now on the franchise’s long-awaited sequel – and publisher Square Enix seems to recognise that it has a hit on its hands.
Whereas the original season, which comprised five episodes, sold for £15.99/$19.99 at launch, its sequel will retail for £32.99/$39.99. That’s a significant increase in price, especially seeing as the new series will include the same number of episodes as the original. To be fair, The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit show that the developer has seriously upped the production values, but it’s still hella cash.
Weirdly, you can already pre-order Life Is Strange 2, despite us not knowing a single thing about it. The aforementioned Captain Spirit episode will tie in to the sequel, and you can download that for free from the PlayStation Store right now.
