Square Enix's Life Is Strange Spin-off Prequel Announced At E3 2017

Given the trailer's tone and theme, we think they've nailed the same feel regardless.

The first of three episodes will launch on August 31, 2017. It is a short game with only three episodes. However, since Life Is Strange: Before the Storm looks to be taking place before Max returns to Arcadia Bay, it's going to focus on Chloe as she tries to cope with life.

If you're wondering who Deck Nine is, the most important answer is that the studio isn't DONTNOD, the dev team responsible for 2015's Life is unusual and who is now working on a full sequel to that critically acclaimed episodic adventure. The game is a prequel to the original Season 1 for BAFTA victor Life is unusual in which we'll get to play as Max's loyal and sometimes a bit insane sidekick Chloe Price during her days 3 years before the beginning of Life is Strange's first episode.

The original Life is unusual was a graphic episodic adventure game developed by Square Enix, and was critically acclaimed.


Developers DONTNOD will not be developing the prequel.

More when we have it.

The rest of this article contains SPOILERS for Life is odd. And Chloe isn't alone: Rachel Amber will also have a major part in this prequel, which is interesting because her fate was also one of the pivotal mysteries of the first game. "Due to the way in which the first game ended, we didn't want to canonize one group of players" choices over the other - a sentiment echoed strongly by our community. Also, there's anarchist symbol in the game's logo.
