Today marks the day that Life Is Strange: Before The Storm's "bonus" episode is here and ready for digestion on the PS4, Xbox One, and PC. At least for those gamers out there who opted for the Digital Deluxe edition that Square Enix offered up. As of this writing, it is only available for download on the various stores for fans of Life Is Strange who purchased that way. That is not to say that it will not be coming to the rest of those fans out there as it is part of the Limited Boxed Edition of the game that houses the whole experience Deck Nine Games put together with a few little extras. You will just have to wait until tomorrow (March 6th) if you are in the U.S. or Friday (March 9th) if you are in the PAL territories. The wait will not be that long.
For those out there who do need to wait, we have a small look at the upcoming episode for Life Is Strange: Before The Storm to tease us with a bit more of the prequel before the prequel. The original was all about shifting time so I guess it makes sense that the prequel game would get a prequel-looking episode to tie it all back into the larger thing. More or less, it is a showing of how Max and Chloe's friendship took the twist we all were introduced to in the original Life Is Strange but never had a chance to see be fully developed in Before The Storm. I hope you have been following along with all of that as I will be quizzing everyone later. For now, have a look at the new trailer and get ready to add more to the game's lore…

Have you been waiting to get a chance to play this episode of Life Is Strange: Before The Storm or will you be missing out for a bit due to how it is being offered? Is it odd to you to see this be the extra episode in the mix or do you think it will all make sense once we are done playing it? Could this also open up a chance for yet another "season" of the story or do you think it will be the true Farewell that the title suggests? Let us have all of those thoughts down in the comments and then discuss. If there is more for Life Is Strange, we will obviously have the updates here. Just keep an eye on the site so you can see and hear them all.
