Life is Strange 2 is about two brothers running to Mexico after accidentally killing a cop


You can run from some problems

Nothing's ever easy in Life is Strange. After a few months' worth of teases, we finally know the premise behind Life is Strange 2. It sees two kids -- brothers -- on the lam and headed south of the border.

Dontnod Entertainment revealed the broad plot on the Life is Strange blog today. Sean and Daniel Diaz (16 and 9 years-old, respectively) are fleeing from Seattle to their home town of Puerto Lobos, Mexico after a supernatural-seeming incident that has left a policeman dead. Sean is the playable character, and a lot of Life is Strange 2 appears to revolve around playing father figure to Daniel and shaping his formative years by instilling values as you see fit.

The biggest yet-to-be-unveiled facet of Life is Strange 2 concerns a new ability, presumably something similar to Max's power to rewind time in the original Life is Strange. Dontnod's keeping it a secret for now, saying "What it is and how it relates to the brothers is something you will discover in due course." Life is Strange 2's first of five episodes debuts on September 27 on PC, PS4, and Xbox One. That's when we'll get our first clue as to whether this is a road trip for the ages.
