Life is Strange 2 is coming to Linux and Mac thanks to Feral Interactive support. Since the first episode just released on Steam for Windows, this is indeed positive news. But the Linux and Mac release will be coming in 2019.
Also due note, there is not release date for Life is Strange 2 on Linux. So native gamers can get into the narrative adventure series via Steam and Humble Store. Originally developed by DONTNOD Entertainment and published by Square Enix on Windows and console. This is the much-anticipated sequel to 2015’s BAFTA Award-winning Life is Strange.
In Life is Strange 2 you will discover a story of two brothers. A 16-year old Sean and 9-year old Daniel Diaz, who have to flee their home in suburban Seattle after a tragic event. One that also changes their lives forever. Further complicating matters is the manifestation of an exciting new power. Since this has wide implications on Sean and Daniel and the relationship between them.
So things may never be the same again. The story of Life is Strange 2 takes place over the course of a year. While Sean and Daniel try to make their way from Seattle to their fathers’ home town of Puerto Lobos, Mexico.
Life on the road is difficult and there are many shades of grey. Since there is never a truly ‘correct choice’, only your choice. Daniel is watching your every move. And he is learning from your actions, so consider your decisions carefully.

The key aspect of Life is Strange 2 is this role model dynamic between the brothers. The decisions you make in Episode 1 will have far-reaching consequences. And also influence the relationship with Sean’s little brother Daniel over the course of the 5-episode season.
While Life is Strange 2 continues the core franchise tradition of telling compelling stories. These relatable characters, realistic settings and real-world issues are all laced with a supernatural element. Along with a new tale that tackles themes like brotherhood. Also raising and teaching a child, responsibility and coming of age.
