There’s little doubt that the next series of the Life is Strange series, Life is Strange: True Colors, is highly anticipated by fans. We have a few here at The Outerhaven that won’t stop talking about the game. Ever since the game was revealed, Square Enix has been quiet regarding gameplay and hasn’t shown off anything, likely because they want to keep everything a surprise.
However, it looks like someone decided to take mercy on our poor gaming souls and has released some gameplay footage. Thanks to this new video that was released, we were able to watch 13-minutes of Life is Strange: True Colors gameplay.
This footage shows off the new character and lead of the game, Alex Chen, exploring the Haven Springs Record Store. There are a few other things that fans of the series will likely pick up on, but I won’t ruin the surprise.
Check out the footage below.
Life is Strange: True Colors will be different from previous entries in the series because it will not release episodically. When it launches, all five game episodes will be available from the start – no more playing and waiting for the next episode to drop. I know I wasn’t exactly thrilled about the episodic releases, so this is welcomed the news, and I’m looking forward to playing through the entire game without pause. I’m sure you’re all in the same boat.
There’s always something diverse with the Life is Strange games, and this one is no different. This time around, the game will include an Asian American as the lead character, as she adjusts to life as she moves to the fictional Colorado town of Haven Springs to reunite with her brother, Gabe. Alex Chen, as you imagine, is no ordinary person as she has the power to sense, absorb, and control other people’s emotions. Eventually, she’ll have to use her powers to solve the tragic and accidental death of her brother.
Life is Strange: True Colors will be released in several editions; Standard, Deluxe Edition, and Ultimate Edition.
Life is Strange: True Colors releases on September 10th, 2021, on the PS4, PS5, Xbox Series X|S, Stadia, and PC, with the Nintendo Switch version being released later in the year.
