The "Farewell" episode is a bonus episode which takes place long before the events of Life is Strange: Before the Storm, five years prior to the events of Life is Strange. This stand-alone bonus episode will release after Episode 3, and is only available as part of the Deluxe Edition of Before the Storm. The player will be given the chance to play as Max Caulfield, the protagonist of the original Life is Strange, for a final time.
It is possible that it will take place on July 28, 2007; in the Before the Storm Deluxe Edition trailer, there is a note with that date written on it next to the page saying "Bonus Episode: Farewell".
Featured Music Edit
There was originally going to be an achievement that players could have earned on Steam, PlayStation or Xbox if they completed this episode:
|Complete Farewell |
However, upon releasing Episode 2, all of the achievement lists have been updated and edited to not include this objective, so that players which didn't buy the Deluxe Edition could still achieve 100% game completion. The new achievement, simply called "Before the Storm", only requires the player to complete all three episodes of the game.
