Highly-acclaimed Life is Strange franchise is getting a brand-new entry focusing on a new protagonist and power!
Life is Strange: True Colors
Square Enix announced during their showcase livestream the upcoming newest entry in the Life is Strange franchise, which they dubbed Life is Strange: True Colors. This new entry is being developed by Deck Nine Games, the same developers who created Life is Strange: Before the Storm, in collaboration with Square Enix External Studios.
As seen in the trailer above, players will wear the shoes of the protagonist, Alex Chen, who has the psychic power of Empathy, which allows her to absorb, and feel the strong emotions of others. When her brother dies in a so-called accident, she must uncover the truth using her power.
Players will be able to explore the small town of Haven Spring while listening to the exclusive soundtrack of the game, which is created by mxmtoon and Novo Amor, and licensed songs including Radiohead, Phoebe Bridgers, Gabrielle Aplin, and much more.
Jeff Litchford, Vice President at Deck Nine Games said,
“It has been such an honor to return to the vibrant, emotive, and impactful world of Life is Strange. We are delighted to share this new story with you: a story of empathy, human connection, and the struggle to find a place to call home. All of the advancements in storytelling, development technology, and premium voice acting that we have made since Life is Strange: Before the Storm will allow players to be more immersed in the compelling world of Life is Strange: True Colors than ever before.”
