Everything You Need To Know About Life is Strange: True Colors
Life is Strange returns for its third major installment. The sprawling series offered up an exciting slice of life stories invaded by one persistent supernatural twist. Things haven’t changed much since the first game as the latest title still offers supernatural powers wrapped around crazy teen emotions and a gripping story. Square Enix officially announced Life is Strange: True Colors today and the series’ loyal fans could not be happier.
REVEAL ALL YOUR TRUE COLORS
UNDER NEW MANAGEMENT
Surprisingly, Before The Storm developer Deck Nine Games take the helm for True Colors. Dontnod seems to have taken a step back for the third main entry in the series. Deck Nine have proven their ability to craft a meaningful story despite getting into the franchise second.
THE LIFE PART
True Colors has players assume the role of Alex Chen. Alex reunites early in the story with her brother Gabe in the picturesque mountain town of Haven Springs. Additionally, one of Alex’s interests seems to be music as she is shown to be picking up a guitar in the trailer. Deck Nine hinted that music will play some part in the game’s story.
The trailer starts off with an emotional reunion but that’s not what Life is Strange is about. The story quickly takes a dark turn when the plot gets into gear.
THE STRANGE PART
Following the dubious death of her brother, Alex begins looking into the mysterious circumstances around the alleged accident. Alex uses her supernatural ability to see, feel, and manipulate other people’s emotions in her adventures. The investigation progresses with her abilities but they have one terrifying drawback. The external emotions can cause all sorts of troubles for Alex’s own emotions. Regardless, she needs to use her powers to uncover the massive secret of Haven Springs.
BYE-BYE EPISODIC RELEASES
Finally, Life is Strange lets go of one of its most archaic traditions. Deck Nine Games confirmed that True Colors will release as a single self-contained story. The plot will still be broken up into episodic chunks but we won’t have to wait for one game to release five times. The Ultimate Edition of True colors offers players an exciting blast from the past with remasters of the first game and Before the Storm.
WHEN DO WE GET TO PLAY?
Life is Strange: True Colors officially launches on September 10 for Steam, the Windows Store, and Google Stadia.
