'Life Is Strange: Remastered' Coming To Next-Gen Consoles This Year


'Life Is Strange: Remastered' Coming To Next-Gen Consoles This Year

Life is Strange came out of nowhere from Dontnod as a modern classic in 2015. Released episodically over the course of months, Life is Strange captivated audiences as we tried to work out multiple mysterious stories. What was going on in Arcadia Bay? How is Max, our protagonist, controlling time? Where is Rachel Amber? And what is it like to live as an awkward teen girl in a small town she doesn't feel like she fits into?


After the phenomenal success of the first Life is Strange, Dontnod has gone on to create a series of games based on this premise - a teen tries living a normal life but supernatural abilities somehow get in the way. The latest of these games will be released in September of this year.


Life is Strange: True Colors will feature Alex Chen, who has the power of heightened empathy, directly being able to see and understand the emotions of others but sometimes these feelings can influence her own. The entire story will be released in one part later this year, but there is also another surprise Square Enix sent our way with the new game announcement - Max and Chloe are back.


The original Life is Strange is now several years old and Square Enix thought it was time for a proper remaster for next-gen consoles. Life is Strange Remastered Collection will include the original time-travelling title, as well as Life is Strange: Before the Storm where you take on the role of Chloe before Max comes back to Arcadia Bay. Both games are fantastic, and we can't wait to see them in hi-def in September along with Life is Strange: True Colors.

Other cool reveals at the Square Enix showcase include Black Panther finally being added to Marvel's Avengers. The Wakanda native was due to release earlier in the game's development but was postponed in respect of the devastating passing of Chadwick Boseman - the MCU's Black Panther.
