Life is Strange 2 is expected to feature multifaceted characters and supernatural elements coupled with daily struggles and the difficult life decisions that bear long-term consequences. The narrative puts players in the shoes of a 16-year-old, Sean Diaz, who is expected to flee Seattle with his younger brother Daniel after a fistfight spirals into a calamity. The Awesome Adventure of Captain Spirit has been dubbed the Life is Strange 2 appetizer and players are encouraged to play it beforehand. Life is Strange 2 is a five-episode, decision intensive game that can be played on platforms like PC, Xbox One and PS4.


FIFA 19 is expected to introduce a new major feature, the UEFA Champions League, after Pro Evolution Soccer lost its usage rights.
