Life is Strange 2 is officially getting a physical release on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.

The physical edition comes in two forms: Standard and Collector’s. Both editions will release on December 3rd, 2019, in Europe, and on February 4th, 2020, in the Americas.

The Standard Edition will be priced at £34.99/€39.99/$39.99 and contains:

  • All five episodes of Life is Strange 2
  • The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit
  • The in-game Arcadia Bay Patches item, which will let you customise Sean’s in-game backpack

The Collector’s Edition will be priced at £64.99/€69.99/$69.99 and contains:

  • All five episodes of Life is Strange 2
  • The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit
  • The in-game Arcadia Bay Patches item
  • A 4x 7-inch vinyl box set featuring the game’s original score by Jonathan Morali
  • A 32-page hardcover artbook featuring concept art from Life is Strange 2
  • 4 inch/10cm Sean and 3 inch/8cm Daniel vinyl figurines
  • The Collector’s Edition presentation box

The Collector’s Edition will only be available via the Square Enix Store and is exclusive only to the UK, Europe, and the Americas.

The Life is Strange team provided the following explanation for the difference in release dates:

Different countries have different requirements when it comes to rating the content on the discs, and in some cases, this means that a game (or Episode) can’t be rated until it’s complete and submitted, even if it’s not on the disc, which is why the game will be releasing later in the Americas.

We wanted the physical edition to be available on the same date as the digital release of Episode 5 on December 3rd – so Episodes 1 to 4 are on the disc, and Episode 5 will be supplied as a download on all platforms. The complete game clocks in at around 65GB of content, and Xbox and PS4 discs top out at 50GB of capacity, which means that Episode 5 will always be a download in every territory, including the Americas.

You can pre-order both physical editions of Life is Strange 2 from the official store by following the link here. The final episode of Life is Strange 2 releases digitally on December 3rd.
