Today Square Enix dropped a very brief teaser for Life is Strange 2, the sequel to the hit episodic adventure series and verified cult classic from developer Dontnod Entertainment.
The teaser is presented as dashboard camera footage from a police car. All appears normal until the camera footage skips ahead by about eight minutes and we hear a police officer calling for backup as he responds to a fight in progress. Suddenly the officer and his car are tossed aside by an unseen and presumably "strange" force.
At the end of the teaser, we’re told that “all will be revealed” on August 20 which is the day before this year's Gamescom. Life is Strange 2 will be set in a new location with an all new cast of characters. The first of five episodes launches on September 27 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC.
"Experience an all-new journey into the Life is Strange universe, that will establish Life is Strange as a diverse world of storytelling and solidify the franchise as a source of immersive narrative adventures for years to come," Square Enix wrote today. It sounds like there's plenty more Life is Strange on the way.
For some sense of what to expect with Life is Strange 2, you can play the free prequel The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Steam right now.

The ever twisting saga of Kingdom Hearts and its convoluted lore isn’t what undercuts Kingdom Hearts III but its own feckless mechanics and the degenerate gameplay experience that comes out of it.
