Stranger than fiction… Life Is Strange 2 begins its cryptic teasing

Posted on August 3, 2018

A new official teaser trailer for Life is Strange 2 has been released. Unfortunately, for those familiar with the game, no actual major characters are seen in the short minute long teaser. The trailer itself shows footage from a police dash camera, belonging to officer K.Matthews, who comes across an apparent altercation. It becomes swiftly apparent that Officer Matthews is out of his depth as strange phenomena begin to unfold.

The teaser trailer for Life is Strange 2 begins off slowly with Matthews’ footage, displaying on the dash cam the time and date of October 28, 2016 at 4:58pm. This effectively places the story three years on from the events of the first game, but doesn’t establish the locale, which according to the developers is completely different from its prequel. After a time skip of a  few minutes  we see Matthews ask for a licence check on an unidentified vehicle. Matthews then proceeds to pull up outside a residence, calling in a 10-10 at 1452 Lewis Avenue, the code stands for ‘fight in progress’. He makes his way to the unseen situation where muffled voices are heard before he is hurled bodily across the camera’s line of sight, the car also being tipped upside-down by the same unknown force.

With not much more to see, the trailer breaks away to a shot of the game’s title and a message stating “all will be revealed August 20th 2018”. Only a few weeks away, fans of the game will have to wait and see just what exactly this “all” is, but for now the teaser isn’t giving too much away. At the very least, it’s safe to assume that additional powers may exist within the game, aside from Max’s control over time, and that we’re getting the first glimpses of them. Life is Strange 2 is an upcoming episodic game series, set to release the first of 5 parts on September 27, 2018 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC
