Square Enix External Studios and DONTNOD Entertainment have released the launch trailer for Life is Strange 2: Episode 2. The second episode is titled ‘Rules’ and will release digitally worldwide this Thursday, January 24th, 2019, for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC/Steam.
Episode 2 picks up a few months after the events of the first episode. Sean and Daniel are still on the run from the police following the tragic incident in Seattle and the manifestation of a strange supernatural power. The winter cold is setting in and Daniel becomes increasingly unwell. Sean decides that they must take the risk and make their way to their distant grandparent’s house to recover and seek shelter.

The power takes a central position in the story as Daniel is slowly coming to terms with his abilities. The brothers have to practice Daniel’s control over his powers so he can be less of a danger to himself and others, but at the same time, they also have to hide his abilities from a world that won’t understand.
The brothers have come to an agreement on a set of rules for how Daniel uses his abilities in order to keep them hidden: Never in public. Never talk about it. Run from danger. But can a 9-year old really follow the rules?
