Play as Original Protagonist Max in Life is Strange Prequel’s Epilogue

Published

Life is Strange Before the Storm

The freshly-announced Life is Strange: Before the Storm will give fans the chance to play as the first game’s protagonist Max Caulfield in an epilogue episode.

Unfortunately, this fourth episode will be exclusive to the Deluxe Edition of the game and will not be available to purchasers of either the Complete Season or Season Pass versions of the game. The Deluxe Edition will also provide access to a range of different costumes for the prequel’s main protagonist, Chloe Price, and a mode allowing players to change the in-game music.

Despite the announcement of this fourth episode, the developers have assured that it is a “bonus” for fans who want to play as Max again, and that those who do not purchase the Deluxe Edition will still “get the full story.” The episode is called ‘Farewell’, and will reportedly take place “long before the events of Before the Storm.”

Life is Strange: Before the Storm is set three years prior to the original game and aims to portray the developing friendship between Chloe Price and Rachel Amber, and features a number of changes from the original game. For example, Chloe will not be able to use time travel to reconsider her choices.

More significant, however, are the developmental shifts, with this new title being handed to Deck Nine Games while original developer DONTNOD works on a sequel. Furthermore, Chloe’s original voice actress, Ashly Burch has been replaced by Rhianna DeVries, though Burch will still contribute to the script of the game.

Life is Strange: Before the Storm will be a three-part episodic series, with the first entry launching on August 31, 2017 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One..

Stalker 2 is Not A Revived Version of the Cancelled 2012 Project

Stalker 2

Stalker 2 has been confirmed as an entirely new project that has no basis on the cancelled 2012 sequel.

Roughly a decade ago, fans were excited when Stalker 2 was announced. Unfortunately, in 2012, Ukrainian developers GSC Games World was shut down and all progress on the sequel was put on hold.

All went quiet until 2014 where the company resurfaced and announced that development on a version of Stalker 2 was underway. Despite a developer build for the original Stalker 2 making its way onto the web, GSC Games World chose to start from scratch and create an entirely new AAA experience for the series.

GSC Games World has so far not stated why the decision was made to start from the beginning, aside from the assurance that the new game is currently in development and will hopefully hit stores in 2021.
