Square Enix and DONTNOD Entertainment have released a brand-new and very brief teaser trailer for Life is Strange 2 Episode 3 “Wastelands”, which is scheduled to release on May 9, 2019. Episodes 4 and 5 are also scheduled to release later this year.
Episode 3 takes place a few months after the events in Episode 2. After escaping Beaver Creek, Sean and Daniel experience life out on the fringes of society. They befriend a close-knit community of drifters and runaways, and become embroiled in the illegal cannabis trade among the towering redwood forests of California.
“Sean and Daniel’s resolve is put to the test once again, as new relationships create friction between them and they both learn much about who they are as individuals. Uncertain about their once united purpose, can they stay together, or will their journey together end here?” (Source)
Additionally, the team behind Life is Strange has announced that all episodes for Life is Strange 2 will be available to purchase separately from the season bundle from this point forward, and that episode 2 is available as an individual purchase starting today.
“The Life is Strange team is always reading the feedback from the players,” Said Jon Brooke, Co-Head of Studio at Square Enix External Studios. “And we saw the overwhelming demand for the option to purchase episodes individually following the launch of Episode 2 of Life is Strange 2. It took a bit of time to set it up since we needed to ensure all episodes can be played individually and even out of order, which wasn’t the original design. But we are glad to finally be able to announce that the fans can now purchase each Episode of Life is Strange 2 individually on launch day from now on.”
“We’d like to continue by thanking all fans who’ve supported the project by purchasing the Season Pass or those who plan to buy individual episodes and those who continue to give feedback on the episodes. Life is Strange 2 is a live development project and all fan insights and reactions help improve the game and the offering as we create it.”
Life is Strange 2 is available now digitally for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Windows PC(Steam).
