In Episode 3: ‘Wastelands', the long journey from Seattle to Mexico continues a few months after their dramatic escape from Beaver Creek, as Sean and Daniel Diaz arrive in the Redwood Forests of California.

The brothers experience life on the fringes of society as they reunite with Cassidy and Finn, befriend a close-knit community of drifters and runaways, and begin working on an illegal farm in an attempt to scrape together enough money to continue their journey.

New friendships, relationships, and mentors influence Sean and Daniel, encouraging them to learn more about themselves and each other. Their resolve is tested once again, as friction arises between them. Uncertain about their once united purpose, can their strong bond survive?

The coming-of-age story in Life is Strange 2 hits a crucial point in ‘Wastelands'. The key themes in this episode is community, relationships and finding your own sense of identity. Sean gets to hang out with new friends and be a teenager again, while Daniel finds new people to look up to.” Said Michel Koch & Raoul Barbet, Co-Creative Directors of Life is Strange 2. “The brothers will spend more time apart and really learn a lot about themselves and who they are as individuals. They have been on an intense journey, and this episode represents a moment for them to experience some sense of normality and focus on themselves, although within the context of an alternative community and lifestyle.

Episode 3 is a high-point of the Life is Strange 2 season. The exciting twists and turns of the story is taken up another notch, and Sean & Daniel will never be the same again.” said Jon Brooke, Co-Head of Studio at Square Enix External Studios. “We are proud of this episode and really excited to see the reactions of players after experiencing Episode 3!
