Life is Strange, a game by Square Enix, sees its release today on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC.
Life is Strange is a five part episodic game that sets out to revolutionise story based choice and consequence games by allowing the player to rewind time and affect the past, present and future.
The first episode that you’ll play is called Chrysalis and it’s basically an introduction to the world of Life is Strange. You will see Max and Chloe reunite and you will make important choices that will influence their destiny. You will see some of the short-term consequences of those choices but bear in mind that there are also mid and long-term repercussions that will pan out over the course of the later episodes, in a butterfly effect manner. So you might rewind your choices as much as you want in the short term but you will never know what might happen further down the line. And of course we’ll ensure that you always get surprised by unexpected turns of events and that your experience really feels unique and customized by your choices.
The team are hard at work creating the second episode of the five part series, and they are “ensuring they get released at timely intervals so you always know when the next one is going to drop.”
You can pick up the first episode for £3.99/$4.99 or alternatively purchase a season pass for £15.99/$19.99.
