With the voice actor strike ending in September, it has allowed the original Life is Strange voice actors to reprise their respective roles in a bonus episode for Before the Storm.
A bonus episode for Life is Strange: Before the Storm will be released and feature original voice actors Hannah Telle and Ashly Burch as Max and Chloe.
The bonus episode, titled Farewell, is part of the Life is Strange: Before the Storm Deluxe Edition
Deck Nine Games, which developed Before the Storm, stated Rhianna DeVries will continue to work closely with the team.
DeVries was used for motion capture of 16-year-old Chloe and will continue this job in Farewell. She also provided the voice of Chloe while the voice actor strike was in progress, which prevented Ashly Burch from reprising her role.
“The team here were thrilled to hear the news that both Hannah Telle and Ashly Burch were able to come back together again to voice Max and Chloe”, said Jeff Litchford, VP of Deck Nine Games.
“We were really happy with Rhianna DeVrie’s performance as Chloe in Before the Storm and the fan reaction to her has been great, she’ll continue to work closely with us as part of a really close team we have created.”
The Farewell bonus episode will be released for Life is Strange: Before the Storm – Deluxe Edition in early 2018. In the episode, players will take on the role of a young Max Caulfield.
