Life Is Strange 2: Episode 2 will finally release on 24th January – an incredible four months after the first instalment. It’ll plot the return of an important character: Captain Spirit. Here’s the blurb from the press release: “As the two brothers struggle against the cold, Daniel gets increasingly ill. Sean decides that they must take the risk and make their way to their distant grandparent’s house to recover and seek shelter.”
It continues: “There, they encounter next-door neighbour Chris Eriksen, a young boy who believes he has powers eerily similar to Daniel’s, and they come face to face with his superhero alter ego, Captain Spirit. As Daniel and Chris are becoming fast friends, it’s up to Sean to make sure Daniel follows a set of rules they agreed on for his power: Never in public. Never talk about it. Run from danger.”
We really liked the first episode, but it’s taken far too long to release this second instalment in our opinion. Let’s hope that developer DONTNOD can hit a more consistent schedule from here on out.
