Life is Strange: Before the Storm

Feral Interactive is bringing Life is Strange: Before the Storm to Mac and Linux next week.

Originally developed by Deck Nine, Life is Strange: Before the Storm is a standalone story set three years before Dontnod’s 2015 breakout hit, Life is Strange.

The game was released across three separate episodes on PC and console, but comes to Mac and Linux on September 13, 2018 in one complete package. It will also be available in a Deluxe Edition with additional content, including the bonus episode, Farewell. The Deluxe Edition is priced at $24.82/£20.22/€24.82.

Life is Strange: Before the Storm centres on the friendship between fan-favourite Chloe Price, and rebellious friend Rachel Amber. In our review we said the powerful central relationship, and strong writing, combine to “elevate Before the Storm above the original series.”

Here are the system requirements you’ll need to play the game.
