After being announced at E3
, the new episodic Life Is Strange
game has been confirmed to be a prequel, in the form of Life Is Strange: Before The Storm
. This game is to have three episodes, and will be following Chloe's story before she is reunited with Max.
For those eager to see more, we've got a 20 minute gameplay trailer to share with you which shows off three separate scenes from the first episode "Awake". You'll be able to see similarities to the first game, especially in the unchanged aesthetics. Take a look for yourself in the video below, and jump straight into Chloe and Amber's lives.
On a sadder note, accompanying this trailer is the rather disappointing news that Chloe will have a different voice actor. Ashly Burch, who voiced her in the first game, tweeted
that she would not be reprising her role due to the SAG-AFTRA strike.
You can join Chloe and her new voice actor when Life is Strange: Before The Storm
releases its first episode on August 31st.
