A Life is Strange prequel is likely to be within the works. That’s a separate sport from Life is Strange 2, to make clear, which was introduced by builders Dontnod a pair weeks in the past.
At the second, all we now have to go on is a bunch of supposed screenshots and idea artwork that was leaked in an Imgur album. The pictures appear to depict occasions that happen earlier than the primary sport.
The authentic Life is Strange was nice. We reckon it is one of many best PC games of 2015.
It seems we will see Chloe, the punk woman who says “hella” so much, and one other character, who may very well be Chloe’s greatest good friend Rachel, who disappeared earlier than the occasions of the primary sport. Speculation is that the prequel, if it does exist, would observe Chloe and Rachel as they first meet, and the years after, throughout which Rachel helps Chloe via the robust occasions following her father’s dying and mom’s new marriage.
The pictures present the 2 women sat collectively on a practice, taking photographs in a nationwide park, and caught subsequent to a tree that’s on hearth. A chunk of idea artwork additionally exhibits Chloe in numerous outfits, her model remodeling barely between a few of them – from a younger harmless woman to a punk who has misplaced her beloved father.
If a prequel is on the way in which then it is probably being made by a studio referred to as Deck Nine Games. This is a not too long ago rebranded studio, initially referred to as Idol Minds, who made PlayStation titles together with Pain and Cool Boarders three. Why them?
In a press launch from Deck Nine, launched on May 31st, the corporate introduced that it was “deep in development” on a brand new addition to a “critically acclaimed franchise” from a “leading AAA video game publisher.” Deck Nine say they’ll have extra data on that at E3.
As to the place these pictures got here from, they could have been pulled from Deck Nine’s website, simply after they made the announcement. French website Gamekult had been among the many first to identify the Imgur album, and say that they had been capable of finding one of many screenshots within the supply code of Deck Nine’s web site themselves. The Deck Nine web site has now been utterly stripped of content material.
We reached out to Life is Strange writer Square Enix to see if they’d verify prequel is on the way in which. But the response we acquired is that they don’t touch upon hearsay or hypothesis – the standard. So, for now, we’ll simply have to attend till E3 to seek out out if a Life is Strange prequel actually is on the way in which. It’d be hella good if there may be.
