Developers Dontnod already hinted at some of the world around Life is Strange 2 earlier this year with the release of The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit. Now, they’ve announced the Life is Strange sequel will drop on August 20 – and the new teaser is rather good.
There’s no direct connection to Captain Spirit in the teaser, which is dashcam footage of an officer responding to a fight in progress. The audio on the police scanner, the framing and voiceover is pretty well done, hinting at the supernatural. There’s also an officer mentioning “306”, although that doesn’t seem to be a regular police code from what I can find.
August 20 is just over a month away.
Max’s powers have obviously gotten a tad more explosive It’ll be fun to see how Dontnod build the puzzle and narrative elements around that.
Update: As people noted, Max isn’t likely to be the protagonist (although I won’t say much more, because that’s a huge spoiler for The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit. Go play that if you’re interested: it’s free, and only two hours long.)
