Une aventure. Plusieurs chemins.

La franchise récompensée Life is Strange continue avec une histoire inédite signée DONTNOD Entertainment.

Sean et Daniel Diaz fuient leur foyer à la suite d'une tragédie. Craignant la police et devant gérer le pouvoir de Daniel, qui peut déplacer les objets par la pensée, les frères décident de se réfugier au Mexique, dans la ville natale de leur père, Puerto Lobos.

À seize ans, Sean se retrouve brusquement responsable de la sécurité et du bien-être de Daniel, et de lui apprendre la différence entre le bien et le mal. À mesure que le pouvoir de Daniel évolue, Sean doit établir des règles de conduite. Faut-il garder le pouvoir secret, ou l'utiliser pour faciliter leur voyage ? Faut-il voler, emprunter ou mendier ? Retrouver ses proches, ou rester cachés ?

Vous incarnez Sean, et vos décisions influencent le destin des frères Diaz, et aussi la vie de tous ceux qu'ils rencontrent.

De Seattle à la Californie en passant par Portland… de stations-service en cabanes abandonnées, d'allées en forêts… la route vers le Mexique est semée d'embûches… mais aussi pleine d'amitié, d'émerveillement et de possibilités.

Ce voyage les liera pour toujours… ou les séparera à tout jamais.

• Intrigue captivante portée au pinacle par des personnages attachants.
• Daniel apprend constamment de Sean : ce que vous lui apprenez aura des conséquences à long terme.
• Des images renversantes et des textures peintes à la main.
• Une bande originale riche en émotion de Jonathan Morali, le compositeur du premier Life is Strange, ainsi que des musiques sous license de Phoenix, The Streets, Sufjan, Stevens, Bloc Party, First Aid Kit, et d'autres.

📕 Description [en]

"An adventure & puzzle game in which one of the protagonists is endowed with telekinetic powers" (Serge Le Tyrant, Le Bottin des Jeux Linux / The Linux Games Book)

One Journey. Many Paths.

The award-winning Life is Strange series continues with an all-new story from DONTNOD Entertainment.

After a tragic incident, brothers Sean and Daniel Diaz run away from home. Fearing the police, and dealing with Daniel's newly manifested telekinetic power – the power to move objects with your mind – the boys decide to travel to their father's hometown of Puerto Lobos in Mexico for safety.

Suddenly, sixteen year-old Sean is responsible for Daniel’s safety, shelter, and teaching him right from wrong. As Daniel's power grows, it’s up to Sean to decide the rules by which they live. Keep the power secret, or use it to help them in their journey? Beg, borrow, or steal? Reach out to family, or stay hidden?

As Sean, your choices shape the fates of the Diaz brothers, and the lives of everyone they meet.

From Seattle, to Portland, to California... through gas stations, abandoned shacks, backstreets and forests... the road to Mexico is long and filled with danger – but also friendship, wonder, and opportunity.

This is the trip that could bond Sean and Daniel forever… or tear their brotherhood apart.

• A captivating adventure driven by a unique and memorable cast of characters.
• Daniel is always learning from Sean – and what you teach him has far-reaching consequences.
• Stunning visuals and hand-painted textures.
• Emotive original soundtrack from Jonathan Morali, composer of the original Life is Strange - plus licensed tracks from Phoenix, The Streets, Sufjan Stevens, Bloc Party, First Aid Kit, and more.

Gameplay

Life Is Strange 2 is a graphic adventure game played from a third-person view. The player takes control of Sean Diaz, a Mexican-American teenager. Sean can interact with the environment, obtain objects, and talk with non-player characters via dialogue trees. Choices made in Life Is Strange 2 lead to different branches in the storyline and affect the behaviour of his brother Daniel and other characters. In addition, some decisions that were made in the game demo The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit carry over into Life Is Strange 2.

Plot

In 2016, 16-year-old Sean Diaz lives with his 9-year-old brother Daniel and father Esteban in Seattle, after Sean's mother Karen left them following Daniel's birth. One day, Sean intervenes when their neighbor Brett harasses Daniel, inadvertently injuring Brett as a police officer passes by. Esteban arrives at the scene and is shot and killed by the officer. A sudden explosion damages the house, and Sean flees with Daniel before more police arrive. Now fugitives, Sean decides to take Daniel to their father's Mexican hometown of Puerto Lobos, and begins to influence Daniel's morality. Near Mount Rainier, the brothers are recognized by the owner of a gas station, but escape with the help of travel blogger Brody Holloway. They find Daniel took a puppy from the store, who he names Mushroom. Brody arranges the brothers a motel room, where Daniel learns of Esteban's death and becomes angry, revealing he has latent telekinetic abilities and was the cause of the explosion in Seattle.

The brothers then spend a month at an abandoned cabin, where Sean helps train Daniel's ability. After Daniel falls ill, Sean takes him to their maternal grandparents Claire and Stephen Reynolds in nearby Beaver Creek, Oregon. Daniel is further devastated as Mushroom is killed by a cougar. At Beaver Creek, Claire and Stephen accept the brothers despite Karen's abandonment, and Daniel befriends Chris, an imaginative boy that lives next door, after using his powers to save him from falling from his tree house; Chris comes to think he has superpowers. Daniel coerces Sean into breaking into Karen's old room to learn more about her, where they discover a letter from Karen asking her parents to take care of her sons following the Seattle incident, along with her contact information. The police soon arrive on word that Sean and Daniel had been sighted in public. Claire, Stephen, and Chris help the brothers to escape.

Sean and Daniel join with freighthoppers Finn and Cassidy traveling to California, and the four secure paying jobs at a marijuana farm in Humboldt County, California for a cultivator named Merrill. Sean spends more time with their new friends, leaving Daniel frustrated with being unable to show his powers. One payday, Merrill discovers Daniel snooping around and refuses to pay the group, resulting in Daniel revealing his powers to the others. Finn secretly coerces Daniel to use his powers to steal money from Merrill; regardless of whether Sean takes part or not, the heist fails as Merrill is alerted. In a rage, Daniel destroys Merrill's house with his powers, knocking out everyone else and causing Sean's left eye to be impaled.

Sean wakes from a coma two months later under FBI custody. He finds a letter from Jacob, one of the farm workers, which states Jacob found Daniel after the accident and took him to his hometown of Haven Point, Nevada. Sean escapes from custody and travels to Haven Point. There, he finds Daniel has been taken in by Lisbeth, the leader of a religious cult who is presenting Daniel's powers as a divine gift to convert her followers. After an initial attempt to recover Daniel, Sean is met by Karen, whom Jacob had also contacted for help. Sean and Karen begin to reconnect and establish a plan with Jacob to save both Daniel and Jacob's younger sister Sarah-Lee. They find files proving Lisbeth had used conversion therapy on Jacob and refuses to take Sarah-Lee to a doctor for her pneumonia, and use this to convince Daniel to come with them, accidentally burning down the church in the process.

Sean and Daniel travel with Karen to the hermit town of Away, Arizona, where Sean makes the last arrangements to cross into Mexico. Sean befriends David Madsen, a former security officer from Arcadia Bay, Oregon, who suggests that Sean turn himself over to the authorities for a better outcome for him and Daniel. They learn authorities have tracked Karen down for her role in burning down the Haven Point church. Karen allows her sons to escape by staying behind to be arrested. They arrive at the Mexico–United States barrier, which Daniel breaks open with his powers. Before they can cross, Daniel is wounded by a bullet from two vigilantes and the group is soon captured by the local police. Daniel breaks Sean out of interrogation and the two flee to a Mexican port of entry, but find it blockaded by FBI and United States Border Patrol agents.

Sean must decide whether to surrender or attempt to cross the border, with the outcome depending on whether he raised Daniel with high or low morality through his past choices. If Sean chooses to surrender, he is either taken into custody while Daniel lives with Claire and Stephen before a reunion fifteen years later after Sean is released from prison, or is killed when Daniel forces them to cross the border which causes Daniel to grow up in Puerto Lobos alone and become a career criminal. If Sean chooses to cross the border, he will cross into Mexico with help from Daniel, who then either surrenders to the FBI and lives with Claire and Stephen while Sean lives in Puerto Lobos either alone or with Cassidy or Finn, or stays with Sean in crossing the border where the brothers open a garage as their father did in Puerto Lobos and use Daniel's powers to become career criminals.
