Life is Strange: Before the Storm launch date for Linux and Mac is now available. Since Feral Interactive recently announced that the highly successful, award-winning narrative adventure game, will release on September 13th, 2018.
While originally developed by Deck Nine and published by Square Enix on Windows and console. Life is Strange: Before the Storm is a standalone story set three years before 2015’s BAFTA Award-winning Life Is Strange. And considering the Steam reviews, holding a Very Positive 89%.
Mind you, my only gripe here is the timing of the Linux release from Feral Interactive. Since the announcement for native support was back in March of 2018. And now we into September for the Linux debut, almost 6 months later. And over a year past the original release on Steam.
