Square Enix and Deck Nine Games have released a 9-minute gameplay chunk from the Life is Strange prequel Life is Strange: Before the Storm. The clip which can be watched below shows Chloe waking up in her family home before wandering downstairs to meet her Step-Father David.

Life is Strange: Before the Storm is three episodes long and releases on August 31 and is set before the events of the main game. Players will control  a sixteen year-old Chloe this time around, charting her relationship with Rachel. There’s no time travel in the game but players can use Chloe’s “Backtalk” ability to get out of sticky situations.

There will also be a bonus episode titled Farewell that lets you play “one last time as a young Max Caulfield.” It’s included in the deluxe edition of the main game. Life is Strange: Before the Storm is not being made by Dontnod, who worked on the last game, instead being fronted by Deck Nine Games. Dontnod are said to be busy working away on their own Life is Strange game.
