Life is Strange: True Colors ditches the episodic model

Square Enix announced Life is Strange: True Colors last night, and the series is ditching the episodic model for this next outing, meaning that when it releases on 10 September, you will be able to play the entire thing in a single go if you want.

True Colors is set in Haven Springs with new protagonist Alex Chen. Alex arrives in town to reunite with her brother after eight years apart. When tragedy strikes it is up to Alex to work out what happened to her brother and come to grips with newfound power.

Alex’s power is to experience, absorb and manipulate the strong emotions of people close to her. True Colors will revolve around Alex using her power to uncover the truth of what happened to her brother, and a few hidden stories of the people of Haven Springs.

Fans of Before the Storm will recognise Alex’s closest friend Steph. In Before the Storm’s first episode you play tabletop games with Steph. She is also one of two possible love interests in True Colors.

Square Enix also announced remasters of the original Life is Strange and Before the Storm, adding new facial mo-cap performances.

Life is Strange: True Colors will be available on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series.

If it has the letters RPG in it, I am there. Still battling with balancing trying to play every single game that grabs my interest, getting 100% in a JRPG, and devoting time to my second home in Azeroth.
