I have to confess to being a little behind with Life is Strange 2. After my fellow Enthusiast, Andrew Gonzalez, went on and on about the first game I checked it out and was really impressed with the story being told. I’ve yet to check out the sequel but I’m tempted to binge it once the season is finished and I can play through it one go. Well, if you’re like me and are wanting to wait till you can play through it all, then you might be interested in the retail versions of the game. Obviously, the game is currently available as a digital download but Square Enix has announced the release date and contents for the boxed editions of the game.
Sharper eyed readers will have noticed that I keep using the plural of version and edition. This is because there are two different packages being offered by Square Enix. The first is the Standard Edition and will include the complete season of Life is Strange 2 as well as The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit and some Arcadia Bay patches. The Collector’s Edition includes everything from the Standard Edition as well as a 32-page hardcover art book, vinyl figurines of Sean & Daniel, a vinyl copy of the score, and a presentation box to keep it all in. Both of these will release in Europe on 3rd December while North America will have to wait until 4th February 2020. The Collector’s Edition will set you back $69.99 while the Standard Edition will be available for $39.99.
If you are unfamiliar with Life is Strange 2 you can check out a trailer for the game along with the official description below –
