Prequel to the original game, Life is Strange, Before the Storm’s first episode launched in August, much to fans’ delight. Now, we haven’t got long to wait for episode 2, which will be released on PS4, Xbox One and PC on October 19th.
The original Life is Strange game was released in episodes throughout 2015. The game focused on 18-year-old Max Caulfield, who returns to her home town of Arcadia Bay to study photography at Blackwell Academy. There, she discovers she has the ability to rewind time at her will, and reunites with her best friend, Chloe Price, delving into the mysterious disappearance of Chloe’s friend Rachel Amber.
Before the Storm focuses on the character of Chloe and her thriving relationship with her friend Rachel. There’s also been a trailer released of the next episode, so take a look for yourselves. This gaming experience takes players through a strong storyline in released episodes, much like a playable TV drama or movie within it and that’s an endearing new experience to any hooked gamer.
From what we can see from the trailer, Chloe and Amber’s relationship continues to grow, whereas Chloe’s relationship with her mother and step father suffers even further. The game also dives deeper into the relationship between Rachel and Frank, as is established in the original game, but with Chloe’s exclusion from school and her general issues in life.
Publishers of the game, Square Enix, talked more on the new episode: “As Chloe and Rachel’s family life continues to crumble, their friendship blossoms and the two girls discuss running away together.”
Square Enix added, “But before they can go, Chloe gets involved with an errand for Frank Bowers which puts her in a dangerous situation and exposes an uglier side to Arcadia Bay.”
Fans are very excited of this news, and the 19th of October can’t come around any sooner, as we can’t wait to continue our journey with Chloe and Rachel and their misadventures in Life is Strange: Before the Storm.
