Here’s a quick overview of the episode, via Square Enix:
In Episode 3, the long journey from Seattle to Mexico continues as Sean and Daniel Diaz arrive in the Redwood Forests of California, a few months after their dramatic escape from Beaver Creek.
Reunited with Cassidy and Finn, the brothers experience life on the fringes of society as they befriend a close-knit community of drifters and runaways, and begin working on an illegal farm in an attempt to scrape together enough money to continue their journey.
New friendships, relationships, and mentors influence Sean and Daniel, encouraging them to learn more about themselves and each other. Friction arises between the brothers and their resolve is tested once again. As tensions rise, can their strong bond survive?
Life is Strange 2 is available now for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. The Episode 3 will be released on May 9.
Here’s an overview of the series, via Square Enix:
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.
• Award Winning Story-Telling
• Daniel is always learning from Sean – and what you teach him has far-reaching consequences.
• Stunning visuals and hand-painted textures.
• Emotive original soundtrack from Jonathan Morali, composer of the original Life is Strange – plus licensed tracks from Phoenix, The Streets, Sufjan Stevens, Bloc Party, First Aid Kit, and more.
