Life is Strange 2 releases for Linux on December 19

By - | Views: 27,505

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.

The story:

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.

You will be able to grab it from Humble Store, Feral Store and Steam.

The next title after this that we know Feral are porting to Linux is Total War Saga: TROY, with a possibility of more to come next year.

Quicker then expected! I already finished it just last week with Proton though.

Was not as good as Life is Strange, and the story was a bit weak and a lot of stereotypes everywhere, but the ending scene was worth it though.

I've not played it myself but I followed a let's play on YouTube and I was quite impressed with the last episode. Wasn't sure how they were going to wrap it up in a compelling way, but they did it. And that cameo!

Nice to know I'll get to play it myself so soon. Been patiently waiting for Feral rather than diving in using Proton.

I wonder why they chose to release right at the start of the Steam Winter sale.

This port is useless, it arrived way to late and the game is running fine via Proton :|

For me it's not useless ;)
It arrives late enough, so I can finish my current games. If I bought it earlier, it would sit in the backlog anyway. And my wishlist is filled with more than enough other, interesting games. Also since the port is later, it's more likely there will be a sale. All in all, for me it will be the same as with LiS 1 and LiS BtS. I won't play it a release, but I will buy it on sale and play it a little bit later. I can live with that ;)

Well, not for me, and some others, obviously...

Not to all the people who waited, for various reasons. You still technically get no actual support if you buy newer games to play with Proton. We've been over this before many times, so I won't be a broken record on it but just remember that ;)
