Square Enix’s Life is Strange (Free) was one of the releases in that Week of madness last year which saw multiple big name games hit iOS or get announced for iOS. I reviewed the first episode and have played the whole series a few times across different platforms. If you’ve never heard of Life is Strange, imagine a teen drama with time travel and fantastic music done in the vein of what you’ve probably experienced with Telltale Games’ titles. Life is Strange: Before the Storm is a three part standalone adventure set years before Life is Strange. It is coming to iOS and Android later this month. Watch the trailer for it below:
Square Enix announced that Deck Nine Games will be bringing Life is Strange: Before the Storm to both iOS and Android on September 19th. As of now, no price point or release schedule has been announced. It is likely the whole season will be available day one with an in app purchase for the deluxe edition content that included new costumes, a mixtape mode, and a bonus episode.
In Before the Storm, you play as Chloe Price and go through quite the adventure that ended up being a lot better than the original Life is Strange. The soundtrack for this was done by Daughter and it is fantastic. Hopefully the port has controller support included from day one and they don’t pull any “exclusivity" shenanigans like they did with the original Life is Strange. Life is Strange: Before the Storm hits iOS and Android on September 19th.
