Square Enix continues to present the improvements of its next Life is Strange Remastered Collectionout next week.
Earlier this week, the company released a pair of videos documenting upgrades to the original 2015 game. However, the pack also includes the follow-up to 2017’s Before the Storm and it’s that entry that we’re focusing on here. Of course, the prequel gets a similar treatment visually, including engine upgrades and a full facial mocap.
In case you are unfamiliar, Life is Strange: Before the Storm takes place three years before the events of the previous game. You now play as 16-year-old Chloe Price, who strikes up a relationship with a certain Rachel Amber. Obviously, Chloe isn’t Max, so she has a different power at her disposal.
It uses ‘Backtalk’ which you can use to try to influence the outcome of a given situation. However, this power can also backfire and cause Chloe and Rachel a lot of trouble. You will find out how many problems during the three episodes. Much like the main game, expect plenty of drama, choices, and consequences to deal with.
You can check out both videos for yourself below, or read our original Life is Strange: Before the Storm review here. Life is Strange Remastered Collection releases on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC, and Google Stadia on February 1. A Switch version is also coming a bit later.
