Square Enix has announced that the ‘Farewell’ Bonus episode of Life Is Strange: Before The Storm is now available to download on the PS4, Xbox One, and PC. The original voice actors Ashly Burch & Hannah Telle return as Chloe and Max on an emotional journey down memory lane.
Deck Nine Games Vice President Jeff Litchford said: “We can’t wait for fans to play Farewell, Max’s return is the perfect way to end the season and we can’t wait for fans to experience Life is Strange with her one last time. We want to thank the fans who have enjoyed this incredible journey with us, we know they will miss Chloe, Rachel, and Max as much as we will.”
Square Enix External Studios Brand Vice President Jon Brooke adds that “the torch is being passed back” to the original team of creators led by Michel Koch and Raoul Barbet at DONTNOD Entertainment. They have been busy developing the next Life Is Strange sequel for the past two years. Details regarding “an exciting new story and characters” will be unveiled in the coming months.
Players who own the base game of Life Is Strange: Before The Storm will still be able to upgrade to the Deluxe edition in order to play the ‘Farewell’ Bonus episode, along with access to extra outfits for the main game.

The boxed Limited edition contains a physical artbook featuring art from the game and the licensed soundtrack on CD, which will be purchasable from participating retailers.
