Life Is Strange: True Colors is set to launch September 10. Writer Sq. Enix and developer Deck 9 have revealed that the upcoming choice-driven recreation will abandon the episodic launch schedule used for the primary three Life Is Unusual video games.
Musician mxmtoon (who supplies the vocal performances for when protagonist Alex Chen sings) mentioned that True Colours will nonetheless be divided into particular person episodes just like the earlier video games, you are simply now getting the total package deal . True Colours can be 5 episodes lengthy.
Personally, I believe that is nice. Life Is Unusual’s episodic launch schedule all the time felt unusual to me. Episodes weren’t releasing on a weekly foundation like a TV present (a storytelling technique that video games like Fortnite and Apex Legends sometimes make use of to nice impact) in order that they did not produce that very same sort of drive to tune in, see what’s new, and end an episode so as to take part on the weekly dialog with mates and coworkers.
As an alternative, as a result of they have been launched a number of weeks (and typically months) aside, it felt such as you have been simply shopping for into an incomplete recreation upfront after which simply frustratingly ready for the builders to complete the remainder of it. I would usually await all of the episodes to come back out so I might benefit from the story in full–so it is good to see True Colours simply popping out with that possibility accessible.
Deck 9 is altering different features of Life Is Unusual’s conventional system too. For instance, True Colours takes place in a extra open world-like location, the small city of Haven Springs. A single major avenue cuts by the city, which you’ll be able to freely discover so as to uncover hidden secrets and techniques and have interaction in non-obligatory content material and conversations.
Who you possibly can speak to modifications relying on the time of day, and the way you select to work together with others will affect Alex’s relationships with different individuals and the general state of Haven Springs. You may even select to romance one of two different people if you would like, every of whom has a special storyline.
When you’re on the lookout for extra Life Is Unusual content material this yr, don’t fret. Life Is Strange: Remastered Collection is ready to launch this fall–it’s a combo platter of each the unique recreation and it is follow-up prequel Earlier than The Storm, each remastered with enhanced visuals and animations.
