That actually sounds real good!

Boiled down to the most basic description? It's a story diven adventure game where you make choices via dialog trees.

We also revealed a key piece of information that many of you have been waiting some time for now - we can indeed confirm that the original Life is Strange team at DONTNOD are working on a brand new Life is Strange game. We can’t wait to tell you all about it when the time is right, but for now we are hard at work ensuring it is the very best game we can create. We’re really thankful for your patience thus far and ask for a bit more time. The new game will not be at E3 in June this year but we will be watching the show alongside you all and wish everyone good luck!

I wonder how it'll work. I can't imagine they'd go back to the same characters.

Hopefully they can catch lightning in a bottle again.

Doubtful on both counts, but I'm up for whatever they do.

Yeah.

Co-game director and art director Michel Koch added that if Dontnot does pursue a second season, it's likely to feature a new cast. He likened it to series like True Detective or American Horror Story, which refresh each season with new characters.

"We can really go with other characters, other locations, but still keep the identity of the game, the themes of the game," he said.
Good, 'cause Chloe is the worrrrrssssstttttt.

Did you confuse Chloe with Warren? Because Warren is clearly the worst.

While Dontnod is developing their own Life Is Strange sequel (seemingly with different characters than the first game), Deck Nine Games (formerly Idol Minds) is reportedly developing a prequel.

Leaked artwork suggests that it revolves around Rachel and Chloe.

Wonder how a prequel would work, given there obviously wouldn't be a time travel mechanic without Max. Figuring out another way to do it would be dumb

Life is Strange: Before the Storm Won't See Return of Chloe Actor Ashly Burch

Ashly Burch, the voice actor who lent her larynx to the character of Chloe Price in Life is Strange has confirmed that she won't be returning for prequel miniseries, Life is Strange: Beyond the Storm. The reason? The SAG-AFTRA voice actor strike.

This is one of the first times the SAG-AFTRA voice actor strike seems to have had a genuine impact on a voice actor's appearance in a video game, with past instances ending up resolved. Life is Strange: Beyond the Storm is in development at developer Deck Nine Games, while Dontnod is at work on the fully-fledged sequel.

While Burch won't reprise her role as Chloe, she will be on-board to lend her assistance to the character as consultant, stating that Chloe "means a lot" to her. It's also possible that she could return as Chloe in Life is Strange 2, as the strike is unlikely to have an effect on the follow-up.

Life is Strange: Before the Storm will be coming to Xbox One, PS4 and PC with the first of three episodes on 31st August 2017. It'll tell the story of how Chloe and Rachel Amber's relationship developed, before the latter disappeared.

https://www.polygon.com/e3/2017/6/14...ch-voice-actor

Chloe is the face of Before the Storm, so Burch’s departure was a concern for fans. Yet developer Deck Nine’s Zak Garris, the game’s lead writer, told Polygon that she still played an important, if different role in the project.

“[Ashly] went through the episode one script” sometime after the strike began, Garris said. “She decided she wanted to get involved. She loved what we were doing.”

Deck Nine then hired Burch on as story consultant, a role she briefly spoke to on Twitter earlier this week. She’s one of several women helping out on the writing side of Before the Storm, but Burch has a special relationship to Chloe. She voiced her for all five episodes of the original Life is Strange, and her performance is a big reason why fans connected so much with Chloe.

So I got this free with PS+ this month, but haven't downloaded it yet. What exactly kind of game is it anyway? Is it some kind of point and click adventure game? Or like Until Dawn?

More like Until Dawn mixed with Telltale-style game play. But without as many time-sensitive quick time events.

It's about hipster teenagers and deals with some heavy topics, including, but not limited to, how to properly water you plants.

If you don't dig it by the end of Episode 2, it ain't for you.

It's best to go into it without too much info, though.

The store page for Before the Storm is up on Steam. Looks like it's $16.99 for the 3 episode arc. The deluxe version is ~$25 and comes with a bonus episode where one gets to play as a young Max.

Kinda silly. Who's not going to go all in for the bonus episode? They should just split the difference and make it 4 episodes for $20.

Agreed.

In addition to the bonus episode, the special edition contains the following:
  • Exclusive New Mixtape Mode Design your own playlist from the Life is Strange licensed soundtrack and listen to it alongside a cinematic scene from the game.
  • Exclusive outfit pack - Change up Chloe's look with three new complete outfits. Includes Punk Doe, Hawt Dawg Man & Illuminati outfits.

That stuff isn't really worth the extra money to me. But I absolutely want the bonus episode.

Also, if you pre-order the deluxe edition you get Chloe's outfit from the original Life Is Strange.
