New Life is Strange arrives in September, and the original is in the process of being remastered

During today’s Square Enix Presents live stream, the company announced the next main entry in the Life is strange series, called True colors, will arrive on September 10, 2021 for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X / S and Stadia.

Life is Strange: True Colors is developed by Deck Nine, a studio that previously worked on Before the storm. In Life is strange: true colors, players control Alex Chen, an Asian American woman who has a supernatural ability to “experience, absorb and manipulate” the strong emotions that others are feeling. The story will focus on Alex as she tries to embrace his power to understand the mystery surrounding her brother’s death.

Unlike previous games in the series, all episodes of Life is strange: True colors will be available at launch, which means you can play the full game on launch day or use chapter skips to tackle one episode at a time.

Additionally, Square Enix announced the Life is Strange Remastered Collection: a compilation that includes improved versions of the original Life is strange and its prequel, Before the storm. The remastered collection will feature remastered visuals and enhanced character animations.

Life is Strange Remastered Collection does not yet have a release date, but Square Enix aims to release the game this fall on PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Stadia. Those who buy Life is Strange: True Colors‘Ultimate Edition will receive a copy of the Remastered collection, but the game will also be available as a standalone purchase.
