Ashley Burch returning for Life is Strange: Before the Storm bonus episode

Ashley Burch returning for Life is Strange: Before the Storm bonus episode

With the voice actor strike ending in September, it has allowed the original Life is unusual voice actors to reprise their respective roles in a bonus episode for Before the Storm. Following which, Ashley Burch will now be reprising her role as Chloe for a bonus episode of Life is Strange: Before the Storm.

Find out why Before the Storm should be teaching Star Wars a thing or two about prequels.

Rhianna DeVries had been given the mantle of voicing Chloe in Before the Storm and developer of the original Dontnod made sure to praise her for her portrayal.

"Rhianna DeVries has done a fantastic job for the voice and motion capture of 16-year-old Chloe so far", read a statement from Square Enix. Players take on the role of a rebellious teen named Chloe Price who forms an unlikely friendship with Rachel Amber, a attractive and popular girl destined for success. But this is a hella good way to send the pair off.

LIFE IS STRANGE: BEFORE THE STORM is set in Arcadia Bay, three years before the events of the first game in the series. The third and final chapter has yet to attract a release date, but is expected to launch soon.

The videogame voice actor strike that recently concluded led to kind of an unusual situation this summer, when union member Ashly Burch, who provided the voice of Chloe Price in the first series, was replaced with a non-union performer for the prequel Life is Strange: Before the Storm. "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". In this episode, players will take on the role of Max once more but unfortunately not much else is known about what exactly will be happening in the episode.
