Life Is Strange: True Colors brings a brand new story, characters, and mystery in the adventure series – but this time with no episodic release. Check out the first trailer for Life is Strange 3 here!
Life Is Strange: True Colors is an upcoming graphic adventure video game developed by Deck Nine and published by Square Enix‘s European subsidiary. It will be released in its entirety on 10 September 2021 for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and Stadia. It is the fifth installment in the Life Is Strange series, and the third mainline game, succeeding Life Is Strange 2. The plot focuses on Alex Chen, a young woman who can experience the emotions of others, as she tries to solve the mystery behind her brother’s death.
Alex Chen, a young Asian-American woman who has grown up in a foster family and has had a troubled childhood, reunites with her brother Gabe eight years later when he encourages her to return. After Gabe is killed in a mysterious accident, Alex investigates the truth behind the accident by using her psychic empathy power that allows her to read and manipulate the strong emotions, which she perceives as colorful auras, to physically see how others feel around her—potentially at the cost of being “infected” by their emotions. Along the way, Alex meets many citizens of Colorado‘s picturesque mountain town of Haven Springs, including two potential love interests, Ryan and Steph, the latter of whom appeared in Life Is Strange: Before the Storm.
True Colors is scheduled for release on 10 September 2021 for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X and Series S, and Google Stadia. Unlike the prior games in the series which have had an episodic release schedule, the game will be released in its entirety at once. The game is still structured in five chapters so that the player may experience the game in smaller segments.
