Dontnod’s Tell Me Why recieved a new story trailer during the Xbox Games Showcase, including an August release date for episode one.
During the Xbox Games Showcase, we got a new look at Tell Me Why, the latest game from Life is Strange developer Dontnod Entertainment. We also got an August 27 release date for episode one.
The game follows Allyson and Tyler, two twins that have a supernatural power which lets them see past memories. Together, they work together to unravel the mysteries behind their childhood. Like other Dontnod games, Tell Me Why is episodic and the story takes place over three episodes, with chapter one launching on August. Xbox released a new trailer that goes over the game’s story and what players can expect. You can watch the new trailer down below.
Tell Me Why was announced last November during an Inside Xbox event. It’ll be published by Xbox Games Studios, with all three episodes to release at the same time. Since the new trailer says episode one launches next month, it’s unclear if episodes two and three will come out at the same time. Additionally, Dontnod Entertainment is developing Twin Mirror, another episodic game that is supposed to release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC later this year.
Prior to Tell Me Why, Dontnod released Life is Strange 2, which released episode one in September 2018 and concluded with episode five in December 2019. The franchise started in 2015 with the first Life is Strange game, followed by Life is Strange: Before the Storm, and The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit.
Tell Me Why wasn’t the only major announcement during the Xbox Games Showcase. We received new gameplay for Halo: Infinite, a State of Decay 3 reveal, and the announcement of a new Fable game. Additionally, we’ll be receiving new DLC for The Outer Worlds, an Xbox Series X version of Ori and the Will of the Wisps, and Tetris Effect Connected coming to the Series X as well.
Chapter One of Tell Me Why launches on August 27 for Xbox One, Windows 10, and Steam. You can watch the full Xbox Games Showcase below to see everything Microsoft announced.
