About This Game





ALL EPISODES ARE AVAILABLE TO PLAY NOW!



Purchase the Complete Season and receive the 'Arcadia Bay' patch bundle to customise your in-game backpack.

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.

Key Features:
Award Winning Story-Telling
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.
