Square Enix has just unveiled what is effectively a season two in the form of Life Is Strange: Before The Storm.
The brand new game was unveiled with the cinematic trailer below as part of the Xbox E3 event. The game will be made up of three episodes taking players back to Arcadia Bay. Set three years before the events of the first game in the series, Life Is Strange: Before The Storm follows the events surrounding Chloe Price and Rachel Amber, with players controlling Chloe.
Lee Singleton, Head of Studio at Square Enix London Studios commented alongside the unveiling:
“Life Is Strange: Before The Storm is a key release for Square Enix this year and is being created as a direct response to fans asking to return to Arcadia Bay so they can revisit the characters they fell in love with. Many people can identify a particular person who significantly influenced their life; the person that ultimately shaped who they became. Life Is Strange: Before The Storm is about this exact moment.”
The game will be released on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Windows PC on August 31 2017.
