Life is Strange original voice actors Ashly Burch and Hannah Telle will reprise their roles for a bonus episode of Life is Strange: Before the Storm, Square Enix has announced.
Following the conclusion of a strike by video game actors, which kept Burch from reprising her role as troubled youth Chloe Price in Before the Storm, both Burch and Telle, who played Max Caulfield in the original series, will return for a special episode titled “Farewell”, to be released with the deluxe edition of prequel Life is Strange: Before the Storm in early 2018.
In Burch’s absence, the role of Chloe Price fell to actress Rhianna DeVries, who developer Deck Nine says will continue to assist with the motion capture of young Chloe for the bonus episode: “Rhianna DeVries has done a fantastic job for the voice and motion capture of 16-year-old Chloe so far, bringing a little bit of herself to the role, just as Ashly had in the previous game.
“We are forever thankful to Rhianna for the work she has put into Before the Storm and she will continue to work with us for the motion capture of young Chloe in Farewell.”
Farewell will see players take on the role of a younger Max in what could possibly be the last time we see Burch and Telle together in Life is Strange.
Life is Strange: Before the Storm Episode 1 and 2 are out now.
