Life Is Strange 2 Launch Trailer Released

DONTNOD Entertainment came out with their newest trailer for Life Is Strange 2 on Thursday, and it seems to showcase more of the game than any other trailer so far. Slowly over the past couple months, the story has been unveiled and unjumbled. While there are still many questions surrounding the true goals and direction of Sean and Daniel through the story, we have a general idea of what to expect and what events the story line stems from. The launch trailer helps to clarify the chronology of all the bits and pieces we’ve been given; it definitely paints a clearer picture.

The true beauty of the trailer comes with the chilling and intense music and sounds. Jonathan Morali is back to compose the newest installment of the Life Is Strange series, and so far, from what we’ve seen, it’s bound to be one that fans will continue to listen to long after the final episode of the game has been released. In addition, the voice acting made its presence known throughout the trailer. The spotty performances in the past games have taken away from the experience at times, so the trailer serves as a nice preview to the improvements that can be expected in the dialogue.

 

The acting in the first games was by no means awful, just inconsistent. The cast performed well enough to spark award nominations for Best Performer (Ashley Burch – Life Is Strange) in the British Academy Film and Television Awards and Best Female Lead Vocal Performance in a Video Game (Kylie Brown and Rhianna DeVries – Life Is Strange: Before the Storm) in the Behind the Voice Actors Awards. Hopefully, the actors in Life Is Strange 2 can make an even bigger impression. However, despite how much I love the series, it goes without saying that the acting is definitely not the strong suit of the games. Compared to the three voice acting award nominations, the soundtracks have won 3 awards and been nominated for 2 others. It will be particularly exciting to see if Life Is Strange 2 can continue its beautiful scores and add to the series’ list of awards.

 

This trailer has definitely got me even more excited for the release on the 27th! It’s a shame that well only get the first episode. What do you think of the next Life Is Strange game? Will it live up to or supersede the first two games? Continue the conversation in the comments!

 

You can pre-order the game for PC on Steam, in the PlayStation store, or for Xbox. The first episode releases Thursday, September 27 and is bound to impress.
