Life is Strange: Before the Storm brought its prequel story to a close with the release of its third episode last month, yet fans of Life is Strange will not only have a bonus episode to look forward to in the near future, but several new editions of the game for those looking to experience Chloe’s story from the beginning.
Publisher Square Enix has announced that the “bonus” episode of Life is Strange: Before the Storm, titled “Farewell,” will be released on March 6th, 2018 across PS4, Xbox One, and PC. The episode in question will follow Chloe and Max before the events of the first season of Life is Strange, with the characters’ original voice actors, Ashly Burch and Hannah Telle, set to reprise their roles in the episode. The bonus episode is available as part of the “Deluxe Edition” of Before the Storm digitally, or can be purchased separately.
In addition to the release of the bonus episode, Square Enix also revealed that two physical versions of Before the Storm will also be coming in the US on March 6th, and in European/PAL territories on March 9th, 2018. The first of these is a Limited Edition coming for PS4 and Xbox One, which will include the full season, the bonus episode, and a variety of extras such as an art book, soundtrack, and an outfit pack for Chloe. The Limited Edition will run for $39.99, and as a special bonus, pre-orders of the boxed edition from participating retailers will also include an exclusive set of vinyl figurines of Chloe and Rachel.
The second of these two physical releases is the Vinyl Edition, which will be available exclusively on the Square Enix Store for $69.99 on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. In addition to all of the contents of the Limited Edition, the Vinyl Edition will include a special collector’s box and the game’s full soundtrack on both CD and vinyl.
