Life Is Strange Before The Storm episode 2 – Release date, new trailer
Life Is Strange Before The Storm episode 2 – entitled ‘Brave New World’ – will have a release date next week on PS4, Xbox One and PC.
Square Enix have shown off the first trailer for the latest instalment of the three-part Life Is Strange prequel.
The first instalment of Life Is Strange Before The Storm, which explored the start of Chloe and Rachel’s relationship, left a lot of questions unanswered.
And fans will hopefully have some of these cliffhangers addressed when episode 2, ‘Brave New World’, is released on October 19.
Here is the official Square Enix blurb for what Life Is Strange fans have in store in episode 2.
Beware, minor spoilers to follow.
The gaming giant said: “As Chloe and Rachel’s family life continues to crumble, their friendship blossoms and the two girls discuss running away together.
“But before they can go, Chloe gets involved with an errand for Frank Bowers which puts her in a dangerous situation and exposes an uglier side to Arcadia Bay.”
Life Is Strange: Before The Storm is set three years before the events of the first LIS game.
It explores the relationship between Chloe Price and Rachel Amber – two characters who are central to the original game’s storyline.
The original Life Is Strange was known for having choices which players felt had a real impact on the way the story developed.
It will be interesting to see how choices made in the first episode of Before The Storm affected the events of episode 2.
At Express.co.uk, we were very impressed by the start of Life Is Strange Before The Storm.
In our Life Is Strange Before The Storm episode 1 review, we said: “Dontnod tapped into something truly special when they created the first Life Is Strange, and Deck Nine looks to have managed to recreate that magic once again.
“Which they should be hugely commended for.
“So lap it up people. And just enjoy the rollercoaster ride of emotions were all set to go on once again.
“Welcome back to Arcadia Bay. It’s like we never left.”
Life Is Strange Before The Storm has been developed by Deck Nine Games, who took over from original LIS developer Dontnod Entertainment.
Dontnod are busy working on gothic adventure Vampyr and also a sequel to Life Is Strange.
