Life is Strange 2 Episode 2

There’s also – rather bizarrely – a live-action trailer for Life is Strange 2 Episode 2. 

Let’s get the weird bit out of the way first. Here’s the live-action trailer for Life is Strange 2 Episode 2.

Why is it so weird? Because Life is Strange has built its universe around a specific style, one that feels fitting and just right for the series. To suggest that it would benefit from a live-action interpretation feels almost blasphemous, like we’re cheating on the game with those real-life actors.

Luckily, there are two elements of this Life is Strange 2 trailer that feel better: first, there’s some in-game footage – which is dramatically prettier than the live-action stuff – and secondly, there’s a release date.

Life is Strange 2 Episode 2 launches on January 24, 2018. The second episode will be available on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.

We have a favour to ask

Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
