Square Enix and Dontnod Entertainment announced that the first episode of Life is Strange: Before the Storm is now available for PS4, Xbox One and PC. To celebrate the release, Square Enix released a three-minute video, entitled "An Open Letter", that reflects the strong themes of friendship, love and support in the game.

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.

Life is Strange: Before the Storm is set in Arcadia Bay, three years before the events of the first game in the series. Players will take on the role of a rebellious 16 year-old Chloe Price who forms an unlikely friendship with Rachel Amber; a beautiful and popular girl destined for success. 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.

Life is Strange: Before the Storm Episode 1 is available for $5.99/£4.99/€5.99. You can also purchase the Complete Season, which includes all three episodes, for $16.99/£13.99/€16.99.
