Life is Strange: Before the Storm for Mac is finally available.

Feral Interactive, the porting company in charge of the Mac and Linux versions, release it just a few days ago, on September 13, 2018. Life is Strange: Before the Storm is a standalone adventure set three years before the events of the first game. This time, you’ll play as Chloe Price, a free-spirited rebel who forms an unlikely connection with model student Rachel Amber.

Given the great job Feral did with the original Life is Strange, it’s good to see them tackle this new entry in the BAFTA award-winning franchise.
