Life Is Strange 2: Episode 1 Release Date Unveiled

The second season will begin releasing this fall.


Life is Strange is returning for a second season, and now we know when to expect it. The episodic narrative-driven adventure game will release its first episode on September 27. We don't have any details on the new storylines, other than the game will be divided into five episodes, but developer Dontnod says more details are coming in August. Check out the announcement tweet below.

Meanwhile, pre-orders of the game will go live next week, and will be timed alongside the release of The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit; it's a free, standalone game that was announced at E3 2018. Captain Spirit takes place in the same timeline and universe as Max and Chloe in Life is Strange. Some story elements and player choices will carry over in Life Is Strange 2. Get a look at the trailer for The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit in the video above. It comes out June 26 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.

In other Life is Strange news, the franchise is getting a comic book series. Publisher Titan is partnering with Square Enix to release a comic line based on Life Is Strange, which is set to debut on December 4. It is available for pre-order now.

Life Is Strange's first episode was first released in 2015 and revolved around the story of Max Caulfield, who discovers she has the ability to rewind time. It was followed by a prequel called Life Is Strange: Before the Storm, which takes place three years before the original and focuses on Chloe Price. GameSpot reviewed all five of Life is Strange's episodes, and you can read them all starting with Episode 1.
