DONTNOD has revealed the release dates for the remainder of Life is Strange 2, and fans are in for quite a wait.
The series will continue first in a month and a half, when the third episode, ‘Wastelands’, launches on May 9. After that, the fourth episode will release on August 22 and the fifth and final on December 3.
Alongside the dates, DONTNOD provided a synopsis of ‘Wastelands’, which picks up with Sean and Daniel Diaz reaching California on their journey to Mexico:
“Falling in with a community of drifters on the fringes of society, the brothers are exposed to new experiences, encounter new friends and challenges, and must confront much about themselves in the process. New relationships cause friction between the brothers and raise doubts about their unity. Can they stay together, or will their journey together end here?”
Life is Strange 2 kicked off on September 27, 2018. This season steps away from the story of Max and Chloe from Life is Strange and Before the Storm, following instead the cross-country journey of two brothers.
So far, the individual episodes have been received slightly more warmly than the first of Life is Strange, though some critics have highlighted issues with the storytelling.
OnlySP reviewed the standalone preview episode for Life is Strange 2, ‘The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit‘, scoring it as a Distinction (4/5), calling it “a crafty way to pull at the heartstrings but also introduce the larger mythos of the upcoming season.”
