Life is Strange: Before the Storm’s second episode has a release date

Square Enix and Deck Nine Studios have confirmed the release date for the next episode of Life is Strange: Before the Storm.

Titled ‘Brave New World’ the next episode is set to launch on PS4, Xbox One and PC on Thursday, October 19.

Taking place three years before the original game, Before the Storm follows Chloe Price and Rachel Amber through a melancholic tale of love, friendship and growing up in a world they don’t belong.

We’ve also got a new trailer setting up the events for episode two, which you can check out below:

In our 6/10 review of the first episode we were impressed by the lovingly crafted world and relatable characters, but felt much of the drama was oddly forced.

“Life is Strange: Before the Storm is an underwhelming start to a miniseries that still has plenty of promise. Deck Nine has shown it can create lovable characters and believable drama, yet fails to cohesively implement them into the experience. That being said, things could easily improve from here.”

Despite this, we’re very excited to see how Deck Nine Studios expands upon its narrative when the next instalment launches next week.
