Life is Strange: Before the Storm's first episode is coming on August 31

We knew a second Life is Strange game was in the works, but now it has a release date. Shown off on stage at Microsoft's E3 2017 briefing, the first episode for Life is Strange: Before the Storm is set to arrive on August 31.

The original Life is Strange was hailed for its novel approach to storytelling in a game, following protagonist Max as you explore the disappearance of a fellow student. Throughout the game, you have the unique ability to rewind time to get explore different outcomes based on your choices.

We didn't get much in the way of details concerning what the game will be about, but it looks like it'll be a unique experience just like the first. We do know that the narrative-heavy episodic game will take place over the course of three parts.

According to the trailer shown off on stage, episode one should be up for pre-order shortly.
