Sean and Daniel Diaz’s journey to Mexico continues in Episode 3, a few months after the events in Episode 2 and the boys’ escape from Beaver Creek. The brothers experience life on the fringes of society, as they befriend a close-knit community of drifters and runaways, and become embroiled in the illegal cannabis trade among the towering redwood forests of California.
Sean and Daniel’s resolve is put to the test once again, as new relationships create friction between them and they both learn much about who they are as individuals. Uncertain about their once united purpose, can they stay together, or will their journey together end here?

Here’s an overview of Life is Strange 2, via Steam:
The award-winning Life is Strange series continues with an all-new story from DONTNOD Entertainment.
After a tragic incident, brothers Sean and Daniel Diaz run away from home. Fearing the police, and dealing with Daniel’s newly manifested telekinetic power – the power to move objects with your mind – the boys decide to travel to their father’s hometown of Puerto Lobos in Mexico for safety.
Suddenly, sixteen year-old Sean is responsible for Daniel’s safety, shelter, and teaching him right from wrong. As Daniel’s power grows, it’s up to Sean to decide the rules by which they live. Keep the power secret, or use it to help them in their journey? Beg, borrow, or steal? Reach out to family, or stay hidden?
As Sean, your choices shape the fates of the Diaz brothers, and the lives of everyone they meet.
From Seattle, to Portland, to California… through gas stations, abandoned shacks, backstreets and forests… the road to Mexico is long and filled with danger – but also friendship, wonder, and opportunity.
This is the trip that could bond Sean and Daniel forever… or tear their brotherhood apart.
