It’s a big week for Life is Strange: Before the Storm. The bonus episode Farewell is out now and the boxed (Limited and Vinyl) editions release this week on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC (Steam)! The Limited Edition will appear in North American stores tomorrow, March 6 and on PAL-territory shelves on March 9. You can buy it here.
The Limited Edition includes a physical artbook featuring art from Life is Strange: Before the Storm plus the original soundtrack of Before the Storm on CD. That’s all licensed tracks including certain Daughter tracks. A tracklist can be found here. The full OST, composed by Daughter, is available separately through their album: “Music from Before the Storm“.
The release of Farewell signals a lot of change. With this bonus episode we’re completing the Before the Storm arc, Deck Nine Games wrap up their foray into the universe of Life is Strange and we bid a fond farewell to Max, Chloe, Rachel and all the other fan favourites of Arcadia Bay.
We hope that the hard work and love that we put into Farewell will shine through and that you feel that we do the characters that DONTNOD created justice. Without knowing if or when we might once again see these characters, Deck Nine Games took extra time and care to craft this Farewell episode into something meaningful that will stay with everyone who plays it. The original voice actors, Ashly Burch and Hannah Telle, have returned to voice younger, more innocent versions of Chloe and Max as they embark on one final pirate-themed adventure.
But when a door closes, a window opens… or, something like that. We now look forward to the coming months, when Michel Koch and Raoul Barbet’s team at DONTNOD returns to present the new story and characters of the next Life is Strange. Until then, Farewell!
