Life is Strange 2 episodes can now be purchased individually independent of the game's season-long bundle. The announcement was made on the game's official Twitter earlier today. Unfortunately, it seems that Steam and the PlayStation Store (or the developers themselves) are currently having some issues with the respective backends of those storefronts, resulting in a delay for this feature being properly deployed on those platforms.
For those not in the know, Life is Strange is a 3D adventure game. Typically, the games feature some sort of strange powers or otherworldly senses that add a mystical theme to a story that is otherwise filled with youthful drama.
In addition to the news that players can buy Life is Strange 2 episodes on their own, a teaser for Life is Strange: Episode 3 has been released. Check out the Life is Strange 2 - Episode 3 Teaser for yourself:
With Life is Strange 2: Episode 3 arriving in May, players will likely be happy that they can now pick up the episodes individually. Many of the top-rated positive and negative reviews on the Steam Store page highlight players' dissatisfaction with the inability to purchase Life is Strange 2 episodes individually. That situation should be changing in short order.
You'll be able to buy Life is Strange 2 episodes individually just as soon as DONTNOD gets the issues with the Steam Store and PlayStation Store sorted out. In the meantime, you can pick up the game in its entirety for the PC on Steam and the Humble Store for $39.99 or your regional equivalent. Console players can get the game for the Xbox One on the Microsoft Store and for the PlayStation 4 on the PlayStation Store.
