The rumors and leaks we’ve heard in the past weeks have come true; Life is Strange: True Colors and Life is Strange: Remastered Collection games were announced during an event organized by Square Enix the other day . Life is Strange: True Colors will be the third main game in the series, focusing once again on new characters, new powers, new stories and new locations. Life is Strange: Remastered Collection will include Life is Strange: Remastered and Life is Strange: Before the Storm – Remastered. The visuals of those two video games will be taken to the next level.
Life is Strange: True Colors focus on emotions
According to the statements made, we will take control of a character named Alex Chen in the game Life is Strange: True Colors. Alex Chen goes to a small town to visit his brother, whom he has not seen in years. Meanwhile, the brother dies in an incident that is said to have been an accident. Alex Chen, on the other hand, does not believe this and embarks on a brand new adventure to investigate the events in depth. However, we have a Life is Strange game in front of us; In other words, super powers have to be involved. Alex Chen also has the power to see and feel other people’s emotions, and even reflect those emotions directly through empathy. He sees it as a curse .
Life is Strange: True Colors, developed by Deck Nine and distributed by Square Enix, will be released on September 10, 2021 for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X / S. However, unlike the previous games in the series, this work will contain all its episodes on the release day. Players will be able to try the whole game as if it were a classic artwork; If they want, they will be able to divide them into sections like other games of the series and experience them by taking a break. By the way, again unlike previous games in the series, this game will be an AAA level artwork for $ 60 . In addition, three different versions of the game will be available for pre-order.
The first version will be standard and will only contain the main game. The luxury version will gift some cosmetic items. The final version of the game will include both the base game, a minor spin-off, and Life is Strange: Remastered Collection. Meanwhile, the improved versions of the aforementioned spinoffs and the first games will also be released in the autumn of 2021, at an unknown time after the main game launches . Meanwhile, it was also mentioned that the game has been developed since 2017 and that animations are created using motion capture technology, again for the first time in the series.
According to the statements made, Life is Strange: True Colors will provide two different romantic relationships for Alex Chen. The first possible relationship seems to be Ryan, the friend of our character’s older brother . The second possible romantic relationship will be the character Steph, who returns from Life is Strange: Before the Storm. By the way, the side experience found in the final version of the game will probably focus on the character Steph, but there is no clear information on this for now. Finally, we would like to state that this game will include licensed music from artists such as Radiohead, Phoebe Bridgers, Gabrielle Aplin.
Life is Strange: Remastered Collection improves first two games
Life is Strange: Remastered Collection, which will only be included in the final version of the new game for now, will be a package that includes Life is Strange and Life is Strange: Before the Storm. This package is also developed by Deck Nine and as you can guess from the name, it visually improves the games inside. Apart from visual improvements, it is mentioned that the animations, lighting and game engine in the game will be of serious quality. Life is Strange: Remastered Collection will also be released by Square Enix.
