Life Is Strange was one of our favorite games of 2015 and its prequel of sorts turned out to be pretty great, even though it was made by a different studio. Titled Before the Storm, the game's first episode came out in August of this year. On October 19th, you'll be able to jump back into Chloe and Rachel's story with the second episode, titled "Brave New World." A new trailer sets the scene for the upcoming episode, which will be available on Xbox One, PS4 and PC (via Steam).

The trailer teases some new characters and places, while returning to familiar ones from the first game. Chloe isn't too happy with the "dillhole" that her mom is moving in with them, and she gets mixed up in a shady errand for Frank Bowers at Blackwell Academy. Chloe and Rachel's relationship seems to deepen as well. Fans of the series will likely thrilled about the new installment -- if you want to get caught up by starting at the beginning, the first episode of the original BAFTA award-winning Life is Strange is free on all platforms.
