One of the big questions we personally had about the next Life Is Strange game is how do you go about telling a new story in a prequel form when you know what’s probably coming. Deck Nine have answered that question with a new trailer from Gamescom: introduce new characters. Before the game comes out on August 31, we’re introduced to a new character named Rachel Amber, who will play a vital part int he first chapter called “Awake”.
There’s a lot of powerful emotions happening in this first chapter and a lot more feeling behind it than I experienced during the first chapter of the first game. We’ll see how Amber fits into all of this when Life Is Strange: Before The Storm comes out next week. For now, enjoy the trailer!
