Square Enix has released the first round of gameplay footage featuring the newly announced prequel to Life is Strange – Life is Strange: Before the Storm. Set three years before the events of the first game, Before the Storm introduces a rebellious 16 year-old Chloe Price who forms an unlikely friendship with the beautiful and popular Rachel Amber.
This lengthy 20-minute look features three separate scenes from the first episode ‘Awake’. In this footage edited together from three much longer scenes, the first scene takes place in an abandoned mill on the outskirts of Arcadia Bay where Chloe has managed to gain entry to an illegal concert. The second takes place later in the episode where the girls have spent the day together in another brand new environment called The Overlook – and the third and final scene will take the girls back to an important area from the first game that fans will be familiar with.
Life is Strange: Before the Storm‘s first of three episodes will launch for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on August 31, 2017.
