Life is Strange 2 Episodes Now Available Individually

By Rebecca Smith, 14 days ago
When Life is Strange 2 Episode 2: Rules was released nearly three months ago, developer Dontnod confirmed that individual episodes would not be available to purchase separately. However, they did confirm they were monitoring the situation and were "considering ways to make things right". It turns out the way to make things right was to make the episodes available for separate purchase.

"Episode 2: Rules" is now available for separate purchase through the panel below; like the game's first episode, it will cost US$7.99/£6.79/€7.99. All future episodes will also be available to purchase separately. Alternatively, players can still buy the full game, buy the season pass for Episodes 2 to 5, or wait for the episodes to be released on Xbox Game Pass. "Episode 2: Rules" is due to be released on Xbox Game Pass on April 24th.

During their stay, they encounter next-door neighbour Chris, a young boy who believes he is a super-hero by the name of Captain Spirit. Sean insists on Daniel following a set of rules around his power. Will Daniel keep his power concealed or break the rules in a time of need?
