Feral Interactive announced today that their Linux port of Life is Strange 2 will be released on December 19.
Originally developed by DONTNOD Entertainment and published by Square Enix on Windows and console, we've been eagerly awaiting the Linux supported release since the announcement in October last year. Just recently, the fifth and final episode was released so we get it all at once.
After a tragic incident, brothers Sean and Daniel Diaz run away from home. Fearing the police, and dealing with Daniel's newly manifested powers of telekinesis – the ability to move objects with his 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 nine year-old Daniel’s safety, and teaching him right from wrong. As Daniel's power grows, it’s up to Sean to decide the rules by which they live.
As Sean, players’ choices shape the fates of the Diaz brothers, and the lives of everyone they meet. From Seattle to Portland, and on to California, through gas stations, backstreets and forests, the road to Mexico is long and filled with danger – but also friendship, wonder, and opportunity.
Since Feral ported Life is Strange and Life is Strange: Before the Storm and both ports were good, I fully expect more great work from Feral here. Life is Strange 2 currently has a "Very Positive" user rating on Steam, so it's going to be another highly regarded title to add to your collection.
