Tell Me Why Chapter 1 release date set for 27 August

The Tell Me Why Chapter 1 release date was today set for 27 August, Microsoft and DONTNOD confirmed at today’s first-party games showcase.

Today’s announcement seems to counter news that all three of the game’s chapters will be available at once; we’ve asked Microsoft and DONTNOD for comment.

“Experience Chapter One of Tell Me Why, the latest narrative experience from DONTNOD Entertainment, the studio behind Life is Strange,” today’s trailer reads. “Play as twins Alyson and Tyler as they use their special bond to unravel the mysteries of their loving but troubled childhood. Set in beautiful Alaska, Tell Me Why features true-to-life characters, mature themes and gripping choices.”

Tell Me Why will be released over three chapters; as we said, we’re looking for more information on the other two chapters now. The title will be offered on Windows PC, Xbox Series X and Xbox One, and is also part of the Xbox Game Pass program.
