The one main difference from the old Life Is Strange game is that it will not be an episodic title, meaning the full game will be released and available to play right away without having to wait for various episodes to be released. Life Is Strange: True Colors is being developed by Deck Nine Studios.
The initial Life is Strange game was first released in 2015 with 5 episodes released between 2 to 3 months all in the same year. Between 2015 and 2020 there have been four installments of the game with Life Is Strange: True Colors being the fifth one. The new game will be succeeding Life is Strange 2. Let’s dive into what we know about this mystery adventure game.
Life Is Strange: True Colors Release Date
The game was announced at the Square Enix Presents event that was held on the 18th of March, 2021. Talking about Life Is Strange True Colors Release Date, the game is slated for a release on the 10th of September 2021 and is already available for pre-purchase on Steam, Stadia, PlayStation Store as well as the Xbox Store.
Life is Strange: True Colors Gameplay
Looking at the game’s first look, there are a lot of things that you will notice. The introduction of Alex Chen as the new character who is on her way to her brother’s house and has a good life and a job. But unfortunately, she loses her brother in a tragic yet mysterious incident. Her goal is to find out and discover the mystery behind his death and who is responsible for it. Alex Chen has a special power. She can manipulate and absorb the emotions of everyone around her. Now that she’s at her brother’s town she has to uncover all the secrets and mysteries of the town. She has to use her power of Empathy to change lives and the fate that’s expected to come.
Looking back at the previous Life Is Strange games, there seems to be a different change in the protagonist’s powers. The first game had the power of rewinding time followed by arguing, telekinetic powers, and now empathy. If you’ve noticed, in each Life is Strange game there’s always someone dead. All the main games had someone die due to some weird strange and mysterious manner. The game has a major step up in terms of graphics and animations. True Colors will be the first in the Life Is Strange series which will feature a free roam mode that will let you explore Haven Springs.
