With the all-new Life is Strange prequel already in the works, we now have intel on the games involvement of Ashly Burch who played Chloe in the initial title, among other noteworthy roles such as Aloy for the uber successful Horizon Zero Dawn by developer Guerrilla Games. For Life is Strange: Before the Storm, Ms. Burch will be operating as a writing consultant for the project, lending a helpful hand in moulding the younger Chloe Price into the character you will play.
This new video provides some key insights from Ashly and the games lead writer Zak Gariss, on what it has been like to create a brand new story at a time where the lead character is facing such rawness of hurt, in so many facets of her life.
The video also includes insights from Rhianna Devries, the voice actor playing the younger Chloe in Before the Storm. Rhianna has been working with Season One’s returning voice over director, to ensure the level of performance and emotion is on par with the original game.
The first of three episodes of Life is Strange: Before the Storm is entitled ‘Awake’ and will release on August 31, 2017 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC (Steam).
