    Life is Strange: Before the Storm, the prequel to DONTNOD Entertainment’s critically acclaimed graphic adventure concludes with a bonus episode that is set before the main game and tells the story of Max' and Chloe's last days as kids together. The bonus episode is now available on PS4, Xbox One and Steam and along with it comes a fresh new trailer. To the delight of many fans of the original Life is Strange, the original voice actresses, Hannah Telle and Ashly Burch return to play the roles of Max and Chloe.

    I loved the first Life is Strange game. I still didn't play this pre-sequel, but I've heard it's as much good.

    I freaking loved the first game. I've been waiting for the disc release to play this. I got my Amazon notification that the disc shipped today. It's almost here!

    I believe the SAG-AFTRA strike is over, and so Chloe and Max's original voice actors can be hired by Square Enix again. It's cool that they brought 'em back for this final episode, but won't it be kinda jarring switching voice actors midway through a game?

    You can definitely tell Chloe is back to Ashly Burch, but it's not a bad thing. I'd say it just makes her sound more mischievous, which fits the tone of this short prequel episode.
    Music is great too. It has one of my favourite songs by Ben Howard :)

    Is this game similar to Heavy Rain? And how good is the story??? Do your choices actually matter?

    Thanks! Last question.

    Is the game more similar to Heavy Rain/beyond two souls in that there is great mystery and lots of action. Or is it more similar to the walking dead, which I found quite boring with simple conversations that really lead to nowhere, with less action and no real mystery to the game.

    It's certainly not "War of the quick time events 2" :-)

    It's about.. humanity. Human problems like growing up, learning how to stand up for yourself and others and friendship. You could say it's Telltale done right.

    So I heard that on the PS4 both analogue sticks work like dpads and thus movement and camera controls are messy. Is that still the case with Before the Storm?

    I hope they redo all of the episodes voices then... The new voices made me drop the game in the first place... Glad to hear that they are back for the last episode though... If they redo the voices I will actually consider not skipping to the last episode lol
