A datamine of Life is Strange spin-off The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit seems to have revealed the name of the main character (as well as several NPCs) for the upcoming Life is Strange 2.
The datamine was posted to the Life is Strange leaks subreddit, and offers several hints as to who you’ll play in Life is Strange 2. From what we can tell, Max Caulfield’s role as main character will be fulfilled by someone who could be called Sean, who is mentioned several times in the datafiles. His partner in crime, fulfilling the role of Chloe, will likely be played by his younger brother, Daniel. The characters’ surnames might be Diaz, although this is less easy to determine.
Life is Strange: Beofre the Storm was one of the best PC games of 2017.
Sean and Daniel (whose names have not been confirmed by developers Dontnod) seem to be the two boys who appear in the final cutscene of The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit, the spin-off that was released earlier this week. In the final moments of that game, its protagonist, Chris, turns to see two boys waving to him from his neighbours’ garden. Given that we saw that neighbor, Mrs Reynolds, towards the end of the game as well, and given that she was rendered in some impressive detail, I’d assume she’s also set to return in the new game.
You can check out the full breakdown of datamines in this Reddit thread. They point towards Sean being the main character, Daniel being his younger brother, and two more characters, Cassidy and a dog, who we’re yet to see.
While the cast of Life is Strange won’t appear in the sequel, the decisions you made in the first game will impact on the events of the sequel. On top of that, there are reportedly references to Max, Chloe, and another Life is Strange character, Warren, hidden within the files.
The Life is Strange 2 release date is September 27, 2018. To tide you over until then, you can play Captain Spirit, which is a perfect reintroduction to the world of Life is Strange. If you don’t have the time to dedicate to it though, you can simply check out our Captain Spirit let’s play above.
