Today marks the release of the final episode in Life is Strange: Before the Storm. Called “Hell is Empty”, the episode’s title is alludes to Rachel’s and Chloe’s participation in the high school play, Shakespeare’s The Tempest, but adds a secondary meaning given the spreading fire started when the two were together.
Hell is Empty centers on the consequences of lies and actions. It’s going to have to travel hard and fast to wrap up all of the loose ends from the first two episodes. The pace of the game to now has been a slow, meandering tale of love and loss. With all the ground left to cover, Hell is Empty will have to move along at a good clip. Let’s hope it’s not too rushed.
