Oh, brother.

Square Enix and Dontnod are making the most of Gamescom, giving those of you who went there a decent chunk of the first episode to play through. The rest of is also got a look though, in this here 20-minute gameplay trailer:

The game shows off Sean and Daniel Diaz, two brothers who – after a series of unfortunate events – have only themselves and the road to rely on; pretty dramatic, right?
Well, you’ll forgive me for being a tad dramatic when you see the opening section of Life is Strange 2, with Sean accidentally murdering a fellow youth before a policeman ripped straight from social commentary 101 rocks up to make the situation even tenser.

For those of you still reeling from the emotional rollercoaster of Before the Storm, the reveal of two wholly new characters in Sean and Daniel will hopefully give us a fresh canvas to work with. Though if we’re being honest, based on the gameplay we’ve seen, that canvas will be covered in tears by the game’s finale.

Episode One of Life is Strange 2 will arrive on September 27 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Let us know if you’ll be picking it up and what you make of Sean and Daniel in the comments below.
