Briefly: It may not be as surprising as the Metro: Exodus reveal, but the surprise first trailer for the I-never-thought-it-would-happen Life is Strange prequel, Life Is Strange: Before The Storm may have been my favourite part of the presentation.
Yeah, the oddly named Xbox One X looks pretty incredible (I’m already trying to convince my fiancé to let us get one), but Life Is Strange is one of my favourite games of all time, and I never, ever thought that I’d ever have more Max and Chloe in my life.
The trailer takes us through some of the tough moments we saw or heard about in the 2015 game, and I really, really cannot wait to see what’s in store for us this time around. Life Is Strange: Before The Storm will span three episodes, and will kick off on August 31st.
For now, watch the trailer below, and let us know what you’d like to see in the title!
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.
