Square Enix announced Life is Strange: True Colors, also releasing the first trailer. Deck Nine Games, the studio responsible for the prequel to the series entitled Before the Storm, is responsible for the game.
True Colors will not be episodic. The complete story will debut on September 10 on PC and previous and next-generation consoles, excluding Switch.
The main character is Alex Chen, a young Asian American who comes to Haven Springs’ fictional town to meet her brother, whom she has not seen in years. The girl has the power of “mental empathy,” which is both her gift and a curse.
Alex perceives the emotions of people around him in the form of colorful auras. When she focuses, she is even able to find out what triggers the mood. Still, when the other person’s emotions are very strong, they permeate the protagonist, influencing her behavior.
The protagonist will use her extraordinary skills to solve the mystery of her brother’s death, which only seemingly died in a tragic accident.
True Colors will be available in the regular edition as well as two special editions. The Deluxe version offers access to an additional storyline, and Ultimate also includes the remastered Life is Strange, and Life is Strange: Before the Storm.
The collection will only debut on PC, PS4, and Xbox One. Of course, it will be possible to play on PS5 and Xbox Series X / S in backward compatibility mode.
Remasters offer an improved visual layer – improved animations recorded with the motion capture technique and numerous changes to the graphics engine and lighting. Everything else, including the plot, remains unchanged.
Life is Strange: Remastered Collection will be available for purchase separately and included in a special version of the new part of the series, Life is Strange: True Colors Ultimate Edition.

After saving their old friend Chloe from death, the girls try to prevent a cataclysm that will destroy their city. The events of Before The Storm takes place before the plot of the first game.
