New players can now jump into the first episode of Life is Strange 2 without paying a penny.
Square Enix has just announced that as of yesterday, the first episode of its story-driven adventure game Life is Strange 2 will be permanently free. The episode will be available free on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC via Steam.
The game follows brothers Sean and Daniel Diaz, who are forced to run away from home after a tragic incident. That isn’t the only thing that the two characters have to deal with; Daniel has a new telekinetic power that lets him move objects with his mind. Meanwhile, Sean is only 16 years old and has become to full time care taker for his brother.
Life is Strange 2 is about a journey between two brothers from Washington, to Oregon, to California to Mexico. And while the trip won’t be easy, it’s quite meaningful.
We reviewed the game’s first episode at release saying, “Episode 1 – Roads is a strong introduction to Sean and Daniel’s characters and story. Their bond is portrayed in a realistic manner, and some moments can be highly emotive”.
