Quick note to fans of the first game: Life is Strange: Before the Storm is being developed by Deck Nine Games, not Dontnod Entertainment. You might have noticed a different graphical style in this game and that is the reason. Dontnod Entertainment is hard at work on their upcoming title Vampyr. Let’s hope that is the only reason they are not making this game.
Earlier today, Square Enix announced LIFE IS STRANGE™: BEFORE THE STORM. The game was unveiled with a new cinematic trailer as part of the Xbox E3 Briefing and the first of three episodes will be released on Xbox One®, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system and Windows PC on August 31, 2017.
LIFE IS STRANGE: BEFORE THE STORM is set in Arcadia Bay, three years before the events of the first game in the series. Players will take on the role of a rebellious 16 year-old Chloe Price who forms an unlikely friendship with Rachel Amber; a beautiful and popular girl destined for success. When Rachel’s world is turned upside down by a family secret, it takes this new-found alliance to give each other the strength to overcome their demons.
