The original season turned out to be one of the best episodic story-telling adventures of all time, but Life Is Strange is now happily rolling on in its ‘Before the Storm’ guise. And today sees the release of Episode 2.
Episode 2 – Brave New World continues the events found in the first episode, showcasing new characters and environments whilst also making room for others who have returned from the first game. As Chloe and Rachel’s family life continues to crumble, their friendship blossoms and the two girls discuss running away together. However, before they can go Chloe gets involved with an errand for Frank Bowers, which puts her in a dangerous situation and exposes an uglier side to Arcadia Bay.
If you were a fan of the original series, or are just looking to continue the events of Before the Storm because you jumped in previously, then you should now be able to make your way to a digital store of your choice, and grab the episode on Xbox One, PS4 and PC.
4K support has also been added and whilst PC players have always been able to enjoy the goodness that brings, Playstation Pro gamers can also now get in on the action. Xbox One X owners will be able to see that support later in the year – we guess as and when the console arrives.
“Although PC players have been able to enjoy the game in 4K resolution since the release of Episode 1, we are happy to announce that PlayStation Pro owners can now play all episodes in 4K by offering a ‘high resolution’ mode.” Said Jeff Litchford, Vice President – Deck Nine Games. “Alongside PS4 Pro support, Xbox One X users will also see 4K support later this year.”
The Microsoft Store will be able to deliver you Episode 2 and Episode 3 of Before the Storm in bundle format for just £9.99. Alternatively, just grab the entire season for £13.99. If you wish to spend a little more, then £19.99 will see you given access to the Deluxe Edition and a few lovely little additions.
