Three-part Life is unusual prequel confirmed

The studio and its development team went under a rebranding recently to focus on narrative-driven games, like Life is unusual. Below, you can find the trailer, showcasing some rather extreme events in Chloe's life as she forms her friendship with Rachel Amber.

Life is Strange: Before the Storm has been announced as a prequel to Dontnod's 2015 episodic teenage tale.

Episode One of the three episode arc will be out August 31.

Update: The complete three-episode season of Life is Strange: Before the Storm will cost $16.99; you can pre-order it now on the Xbox Games Store.

Confirming all of the recent rumours, we're getting a new Life is unusual starting later this year, with episode one of three coming out August 31 2017. When Rachel's world is turned upside down by a family secret, it takes this new-found alliance to give each other the strength to overcome their demons. Before the Storm is being made by Deck Nine Games, the Denver-area developer that was founded in 1997 as Idol Minds.

It's unclear whether this is in fact the new game Dontnod confirmed or something completely separate to what they're working on given Deck Nine's involvement.
