Life is Strange is a surprisingly enjoyable adventure game that despite occasionally ham-fisted dialogue managed to get me heavily invested into its world and characters. As such, I am very glad to say that Life is Strange: Before the Storm has been announced as a prequel to the original story!

The details are still a bit shaky as Life is Strange: Before the Storm has only just been announced, but what I can tell you is that the story will be set three years before the events of the first game. This time around you'll be playing as the rebellious Chloe Price as you explore her unlikely friendship with Rachel Amber, though there will also be a small bonus episode covering Max's initial departure from Arcadia Bay.

While all of this is great news, it is worth mentioning that Dontnod won't be working on Before the Storm as they are still quite busy on Vampyr and a second, still announced game. If you're interested in all of the details, as well as a few brief comments from the new developers Deck Nine Games, you'll find what you seek on the official website. And finally, here's a brief teaser showing off some of the events we'll get to experience:
