If you haven’t yet played the first episode, I would advise you stay away from this trailer.
With Life is Strange 2’s second episode due out later this week—at last!—Square Enix and Dontnod Entertainment have pushed out a launch trailer for the game. Though I feel as though “launch trailer” is a bit of a misnomer here, because this one recaps what happened in the first episode more than anything else.
While that’s good for those of you who need a primer on the events of that episode before jumping into the new one—a reminder that the first episode came out last September, which means it has now been four months since—if you have yet to actually play that, I would advise you to not watch this, since some, or a lot, of it may get spoiled.
As has been previously reported, this upcoming episode will also tie into the excellent The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit, the free to play episode that Dontnod launched last Summer ahead of Life is Strange 2’s release. Maybe play that as well as Life is Strange 2’s first episode before jumping into this. Both, as well as the upcoming episode, are on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
