With the strike over, Burch is coming back to voice Chloe again, while Hannah Telle is also returning to voice Max. Ashly Burch voiced Chloe in the original Life Is Strange, but she was replaced by Rhianna DeVries due to the SAG-AFTRA voice actor strike. But Burch will be returning to the role in Before the Storm's bonus episode, alongside Hannah Telle as Max.
Before the Storm is set several years before the events of the original Life is odd series, when Max has temporarily left Chloe and Arcadia Bay behind for school elsewhere. It will also mark the first time Burch and Telle have recorded together since the original Life is unusual. No official release date has been announced otherwise for Farewell, although players can already purchase the Deluxe Edition or upgrade to it if they own the base game. The episode will see you reassume the role of Max, but details are pretty scarce beyond that.
The bonus episode will be available to Deluxe Edition owners so be sure to check it out.
The "Farewell" episode will have you playing as a young Max Caulfield, with the press release saying that this might be the last time you get to see Max and Chloe together.
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. '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'. Unfortunately as much as we'd like to, we can't say much more about it just now as the team is focused on completing the final stages of polish for episode three, the finale of Before the Storm.
