At Square Enix’s showcase livestream “Square Enix Presents”, Life is Strange: True Colors was announced. It’s the next installment in the award-winning franchise created by Deck Nine Games, the developers behind Life is Strange: Before the Storm, in collaboration with Square Enix External Studios.
Presented by musical artist and social media star, mxmtoon, Life is Strange: True Colors took center stage during the digital show, where its new protagonist was introduced. Also for the first time ever, you’ll be able to play Life is Strange: True Colors in one episode.
The Life is Strange Remastered Collection
The Life is Strange Remastered Collection, a brand-new edition of the original Life is Strange, and Life is Strange: Before the Storm game features all new enhanced graphics and animations. The collection will be available as part of the Ultimate Edition of Life is Strange: True Colors and as a stand-alone edition later this year.
Utilizing the full performance capture tech by rising talent Erika Mori, players will navigate Haven Springs as Alex Chen. Alex has the psychic power of Empathy, a supernatural ability which allows her to experience, absorb and manipulate the strong emotions of others seen as blazing, colored auras. When her brother dies in a so-called accident, Alex must at last embrace her volatile power to find the truth – and uncover the dark secrets buried by a small town. Alex Chen’s journey and power is yours to control, and her future is in your hands.
While exploring Haven Springs for the first time, players will be underpinned by the exclusive soundtrack. This enable you to enjoy new tracks by mxmtoon and Novo Amor, along with licensed songs including Radiohead, Phoebe Bridgers, Gabrielle Aplin, and much more.
Vice President at Deck Nine Games, Jeff Litchford, stated,
“It has been such an honor to return to the vibrant, emotive, and impactful world of Life is Strange. We are delighted to share this new story with you: a story of empathy, human connection, and the struggle to find a place to call home. All of the advancements in storytelling, development technology, and premium voice acting that we have made since Life is Strange: Before the Storm will allow players to be more immersed in the compelling world of Life is Strange: True Colors than ever before.”
Life is Strange: True Colors will be available physically and digitally in three editions; the Standard Edition, the Deluxe Edition, and the Ultimate Edition. Players who pre-order Life is Strange: True Colors will receive 4 additional in-game outfits for Alex.
With the first few seasons of Life is Strange being incredibly and outstandingly beautiful, along with the mechanics changing and story becoming more impactful and fun, I’m sure that this next one is bound to live up to it predecessors.
