Square Enix has released the Episode 2 trailer for Life is Strange, the episodic interactive narrative about a college student bestowed with time-travel abilities.

Following the release of the debut episode in January, developer Dontnod has been working on the finishing touches for the second, with a release date now set for March 24.

Life is Strange follows the life of Max Caulfield, a photography student who discovers she can rewind time. While that supernatural ability is pivotal to the story, it also is used to add a unique spin on the genre's decision-tree mechanic, with players able to rewind time if conversations with other characters turn sour.

GameSpot's Life is Strange review suggested that the game is worth consideration. Critic Kevin VanOrd wrote: "Inconsistencies of time reversal aside, Life is Strange is an involving slice of life that works because its situations eloquently capture a peculiar early-college state of mind."

The five-part series is available on PC, PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360.

Posted below is a spoiler-free synopsis for episode 2, written by Square Enix:

"You will start to see much of your choices affecting the story in a lot of different ways, be prepared for some surprises! You will also discover new locations as Max will go outside of Blackwell Academy and start exploring new areas in Arcadia Bay. You'll be able to learn more about the town, its inhabitants, and the social issues it's facing. On top of this, new and important characters will be introduced, as well as having a lot of difficult choices to make."
