Life is Strange: Before the Storm Episode 2 now available on Xbox One

The second episode of Life is Strange: Before the Storm, the prequel to the critically acclaimed Life is Strange, is now available on Xbox One and PC. You can grab the second installment now as part of a two-episode bundle that includes the upcoming third episode for $11.99 on Xbox One (opens in new tab), or as part of a complete season on Steam for $16.99.

Episode two, titled "Brave New World," picks up the story left off with Chloe Price in episode one.

As Chloe and Rachel's family life continues to crumble, their friendship blossoms and the two girls discuss running away together. But before they can go, Chloe gets involved with an errand for Frank Bowers which puts her in a dangerous situation and exposes an uglier side to Arcadia Bay…

This is the second part of a three-part prequel series that takes place three years before the events of Life is Strange. Before the Storm is developed by a different studio than the original, but it still maintains the same narrative-heavy feel and focus of Life is Strange. Be sure to check out our review of episode one for more.

If you want to dive in and give Before the Storm a shot, you can grab individual episodes or the full season at Microsoft and Steam now.
