Turn Back the Clock in LIFE IS STRANGE: BEFORE THE STORM’s First Trailer

Turn Back the Clock in LIFE IS STRANGE: BEFORE THE STORM’s First Trailer

Two years ago, Square Enix and Dontnod Entertainment caught gamers by surprise with Life is Strange, an episodic game that placed players in the role of Max, a teenage girl whose ability to change time created unexpected consequences. There is going to be a Life is Strange sequel down the road, but at the Xbox E3 2017 presentation, Square Enix turned back the clock with the reveal of a three-episode prequel called Life is Strange: Before the Storm.

As players of the first game already know, the storm in the title of this game isn’t metaphorical. The survival of Arcadia Bay literally hinged upon Max’s decisions. Before the Storm is taking place three years before the original Life is Strange, with Max’s friend, Chloe Price, in the starring role this time around. And Chloe isn’t alone: Rachel Amber will also have a major part in this prequel, which is interesting because her fate was also one of the pivotal mysteries of the first game.

Deck Nine Games are the new developers for Before the Storm, and they made it clear in a follow up video that there will not be a time travel component with Chloe. When she makes mistakes, she won’t be able to take them back. Ashly Burch, the actress who provides Chloe’s voice, is also on the creative team for the sequel to help strengthen Chloe’s character.

Life is Strange: Before the Storm Episode 1 will be released on August 31 of this year.
