Taking place several years before the events of the first season, Life is Strange: Before the Storm showed players a different side of Chloe Price leading up to her role in the original game, and now the prequel series’ bonus installment is out for all to enjoy.
Publisher Square Enix has announced that the bonus episode for Life is Strange: Before the Storm, called “Farewell,” is available now across PS4, Xbox One, and PC, with an accompanying launch trailer and new screenshots to go along with its release.
The episode itself is available as part of the “Digital Deluxe Edition” of Before the Storm and includes a new episode that shows Chloe and Max in the earlier years of their friendships. Those with a digital version of the base game can upgrade to the Deluxe Edition to get the episode, or pick up one of the physical versions of the game coming to stores later this week across North America and Europe.
Square Enix External Studios VP of Brand Jon Brooke said in a statement that with the release of “Farewell,” which will act as the final installment of the series to feature Max and Chloe together (along with their returning original voice actors), that “the torch is being passed back to Michel Koch and Raoul Barbet’s team at DONTNOD Entertainment,” as the studio is now at work on the next Life is Strange title that has been in development for the past two years. Specifically, Brooke said that “we look forward to sharing an exciting new story and characters in the coming months.”
