Wolves in Winter – Life is Strange 2: Episode 2 Rules Reviewed

After about four months of waiting, the emotional adventure Life is Strange 2 by the developer Dontnod Entertainment and publisher Square Enix continues. In the second episode Rules not only Sean and Daniel continue their journey, but also the story of Captain Spirit goes on. Here you can find out what awaits you this time. Of course we don’t want to reveal too much in advance, but it’s advisable to have played the first episode before reading it.

One month later…

About a month after the events of the first episode, the action of Rules begins. Winter has now arrived. Deep in the snow-covered forest, the brothers have settled into an abandoned hat. The first shock after the events of the first part has been overcome, but not processed. In the wilderness Daniel trains under the guidance of Sean and can now use his skills in a more controlled way. Sean has also set rules for Daniel: Show no one the strength, tell no one about it and run away when danger threatens.

Training in the forest

Welcome to Beaver Creek!

However, the circumstances force the brothers to move on. Their way leads them to Beaver Creek. The small village is the main scene of the second episode. Back in civilization, the brothers even find a kind of home with their grandparents. They meet new characters and Daniel makes friends with Chris, aka Captain Spirit ,. You will learn more about the family of the brothers and also Chris’ story will be told.

On the way to Beaver Creek

It is highly recommended to play The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit before you start with the second episode of Life is Strange 2. In this free adventure game you get to know Chris and his superhero me Captain Spirit and learn more about his past. Rules not only connects directly to the end of the game, but before the start your score is imported with your decisions from The Awesome Adventure of Captain Spirit and influences your gaming experience in Life is Strange 2.

A special reunion

For Sean and Daniel, life in the city also has its downsides. Since they’re still on the run, they’ll have to lay low. This is especially difficult for Daniel, because he would like to be a normal child again after the strains he has had so far. Sean tries to teach Daniel how to use his powers properly and to make him understand the implications of them. Responsibility, lies and truth play an important role. The title-giving rules become a critical topic again and again. Similar to the first episode, it’s up to you to decide how Sean reacts to Daniel’s behavior, what Daniel learns from it, and ultimately what he makes of it.
