Life is Strange 2 Episode 1 is now free-to-play forever

It’s been a busy few days in Dontnod news, with the developers wrapping up their latest episodic adventure game and then almost immediately announcing a release date for their next title. So, whether you’ve never played a Dontnod game before and are curious as to what all the fuss is about; are a resident of one of the regions where you still can’t buy Tell Me Why yet; or just desperately need something to tide you over until Twin Mirror comes out on December 1; now seems like a good time to sample some freebies from the team.

It’s with impeccable timing, then, that Life is Strange 2 Episode 1 has been made free-to-play on all platforms. The sequel to what is pretty incontestably Dontnod’s most famous game, Life is Strange 2 follows a different group of characters and a completely separate story, but retains the linked central themes of coming-of-age and developing superpowers, playing out against an American landscape that is somehow simultaneously modern and nostalgic. Though perhaps not quite as beloved as the original, Life is Strange 2 still has a lot going for it and has been very well received, even managing to snag a Best Performer BAFTA for its lead actor Gonzalo Martin earlier this year.
