Life Is Strange Before the Storm Final Game process:
Just like the first part of Life Is Strange Before the Storm – a graphic adventure game with a third-person view in the genre of interactive cinema divided into three main episodes. The protagonist is now one of the main characters the younger best friend of the protagonist of the first part. There is a distinctive feature of the series – the heroine comments almost every interaction with the characters or objects. But unlike Max Caulfield who discovered the opportunity to unwind time Chloe Price does not have supernatural powers. Instead the developers added the opportunity in a dialogue with other characters choosing one or the other variant of the answer to persuade the situation or conversation to their advantage and in this mode the time for choosing the answer option is limited after its expiration the conversation will end not in favor of the main character.
The main menu of the game also changes with the development of the plot. Instead of the panorama of Arcadia Bay the backdrop of the main menu is the national park in which as the game progresses a fire begins and by the end of it remains only the ashes.
In the game there is also a system of achievements. Only if Max took photos Chloe draws a graffiti marker on certain places. And for the player there is a choice – which of the proposed images Chloe should draw.
Another innovation – Chloe can change the outer clothing of several proposed options. To do this she needs to open her closet with clothes in her room in episode 1 Rachel’s travel bag in episode 2. Those who ordered the game on pre-order received a bonus – Chloe’s clothes from the original Life is Strange (except the cap). Owners of the Deluxe Edition have got a few more options of appearance.
