Here is the first trailer for Life is Strange: Before the Storm.
We knew that Life is Strange is going to get a sequel from developer Dontnod, but we only heard rumors regarding the possibility of a prequel to the popular adventure title. This prequel will only be three episodes long with the first episode releasing on August 31st. Ther’s nothing to suggest that this will be an Xbox One exclusive despite the fact that the game premiered during Microsoft’s conference.
It hasn’t been confirmed whether or not this game is being developed by Dontnod, but we wouldn’t be surprised to learn that the studio is not fielding this prequel given that they are working on a sequel to the original title at the moment. If that is the case, we are unsure who is developing Before the Storm at this time.
In fact, much of this game remains shrouded in some darkness. Given the narrative progression of the original adventure, it’s not clear whether or not this title will emphasize aspects of the original game such as time travel. If it does, then it could be interesting to see whether or not this prequel chooses to mess with any of the events that either occurred or were hinted at during the original story.
Assuming that this will be a canonical experience, it’s unlikely that it will mess with the mythology in any serious ways. We are, however, interested to see how the developers choose to play with our expectations by showcasing some of our favorite characters in this particular timeframe.
