Life is Strange 2 was initially revealed back at Gamescom last year. Since then, we’ve received episode one last fall and episode 2 late January of this year. Since then, many fans of the series have been eager for the next installment within the five episode season. Thankfully the wait hasn’t been too grueling or far apart as publisher Square Enix has officially announced the release dates of the next set of episodes of Life is Strange 2 by way of a press release. The third episode of DONTNOD Entertainment’s Life is Strange 2 titled “Wastelands” has been slated to release May 9, 2019.
Coupled along with this announcement, they also included the release dates for episodes 4 and 5 which will be coming to the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on August 22, and December 3 respectively. It looks like fans will not have to wait more than a few months between episodes, and if Square Enix sticks to this release layout players can take comfort in knowing exactly when they can jump into the next step within the story.
“Episode 3, ‘Wastelands’, continues Sean and Daniel Diaz’s journey to Mexico, as they reach the towering redwood forests of California. Falling in with a community of drifters on the fringes of society, the brothers are exposed to new experiences, encounter new friends and new challenges, and must confront much about themselves in the process. New relationships cause friction between the brothers and raise doubts about their unity. Can they stay together, or will their journey together end here?“
