Max is hella back

Time travelling teen drama Life is Strange is getting a new season, which will serve as a prequel to the original 2015 game. The new arc is called “Before the Storm” and will be spread across three episodes.

The original Life is Strange starred high school student Max, an aspiring photographer who learns she has the power to rewind time. The narrative-focused experience centered around Max’s budding power, which she could use to change events and reshape the future. It was a gripping story that melded elements of TV shows like Veronica Mars and Twin Peaks, with the gameplay of episodic adventures from Telltale Games.

The first episode of the new Life is Strange arc will debut on August 31st. Meanwhile, a live-action series based on the series is also in the works.
