Square Enix have today revealed that the first episode, titled Awake, for the prequel, Life is Strange: Before the Storm is now out to purchase.

It’s available now on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. A new video was also released, entitled “An Open Letter”, which was created to reflect the strong themes of friendship, love and support in the game. Square Enix Vice President for Brand Marketing Jon Brooke said:

I wanted to capture the emotion and spirit of Life is Strange in a way that you don’t usually see in video game advertising. As a game, it braves to be different, harnessing emotions rarely seen in video games and I wanted the advertising to match this. I am really pleased with how it turned out. It’s designed to remind us that life is all about our relationships and a strong friendship can change everything. I hope everyone can relate to that

We’ll have our review for the first episode hitting the site soon so keep an eye out for that. In the meanwhile, be sure to give us your thoughts in the comment section below.
