It’s a great way to experience Life is Strange 2 - and if you haven’t already, you really should, because it’s a truly unforgettable game.
Developed by DONTNOD, it follows two brothers: 16-year old Sean and 9-year old Daniel Diaz. A traumatic incident tears them from their home in suburban Seattle, forcing them into a dangerous life on the road. Adding to the chaos, Daniel is developing a new telekinetic power. The bond between the brothers will be tested to the limit, but as for what happens… that depends on you.
Life is Strange 2 features a very complex choice system, in which your actions and reactions determine not only how scenes play out, but also how characters interact.
There’s another good reason to play the demo too - the technology is really cool! The streaming demo uses the Polystream platform, which delivers real-time 3D experiences on demand from the cloud. Because there are no downloads, you can jump straight into the meat of the game with no hassle, faff or waiting.
