Game Pass subscribers can play the second episode at launch, just like everyone else.
Dontnod Entertainment recently dropped the launch trailer for Episode 2 of Life is Strange 2. It sees the brothers Sean and Daniel Diaz still on the run, while doing their best to remain inconspicuous. You can watch it here, though keep in mind that there are quite the number of spoilers for Episode 1.
Episode 2 is out on January 24th, but Xbox Game Pass subscribers will also get it on the same day, as per the official Xbox Twitter. The service currently holds the full seasons for Life is Strange and Life is Strange: Before the Storm, along with Life is Strange 2: Episode 1. For those who have yet to get into the franchise, this presents a very compelling offer, since Xbox Game Pass is only $9.99 per month.
Of course, the second episode of Season 2 will also be available for PS4 and PC players tomorrow. The entire season has five episodes in total, so if you’re holding off until it’s complete, you’ll have to wait. Stay tuned for more details on subsequent episode releases in the meantime.
