During the Square Enix Presents showcase, held today, fans where shown the next instalment to the Life Is Strange series. For those unfamiliar with Life Is Strange, then you have come to the right place, as we will be covering the key takeaways from the recent showcase and answering some of those questions that you might have burning away, such as "do I need to have played the previous games to understand this story?!"

We hope you enjoy the article and be sure to watch the trailer above to get an idea of what to expect in this brand new narrative adventure. 

Do I need to play Life Is Strange 1 and 2, to play this game?

  • The Short Answer Is No, but there is a catch. (There's always a catch)

Life Is Strange 1 and 2, did have very light components which linked the two games up. Missing these, never really took away from the story being told, BUT it did draw away some of the context behind one particular moment. Its safe to say that Life Is Strange: True Colors will take this concept too! Although the good news is, that if you get the Ultimate edition of the new game, you get a remastered version of Life is Strange 1 included, which suggests that only the events of the first installment are going to have the biggest links to this title. 

However, players will be controlling Alex Chen, an entirely new character. Alex is a sharp and witty 21 year old, who travels to Haven Springs with the hopes of reuniting with her estranged brother. Although as seen in the trailer, Alex has, what she considers, a 'curse' that she is hiding the world from knowing about. 

What Type of Gamer Will Enjoy This Title? 

Life Is Strange is a title I urge most people should experiance due to its careful handling of themes that can be quite hard to tackle normally. These themes range from mental health, discrimiation all the way through to substence abuse. Dont be fooled by the select choice of graphics, these games usually explore extremely dark themes. Although, like nearly every game out there, not all gamers will enjoy these games. I'd suggest that if you are into more cinematic experiances and story driven experiances this is right up your street. The kind of people who like Life Is Strange are those who enjoy Telltale titles like The Walking Dead, Tales of Borderlands and Wolf Among Us. Though I do strongly urge that if you've never explored this genre before, then give it a try! 

Will This Game Be Episodic Like The Previous Titles? 

  • Nope! Life Is Strange: True Colors releases as an entire game, which can be binged from beginning to end on release day!

This is probably the best bit of news to come for this title! The previous installments have forced players to wait long periods of time to play its events, due to breaking down its releases into episodic parts - This makes us soo happy! 

What Consoles Will This Title Be Avaliable for, and When Is It Out? 

Life is Strange: True Colors arrives on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One and Steam on September 10. The game’s available to preorder now, with some great bonuses, including exclusive outfits, and the Deluxe Edition bonus story ‘Wavelengths’.

What’s more, if you preorder the Life is Strange: True Colors Ultimate Edition, you’ll get the Life is Strange: Remastered Collection included. This new bundle features the original Life is Strange and Life is Strange: Before the Storm, both remastered with improved visuals and animation.
