Life is Strange: True Colors Releases This Fall

Square Enix revealed Life is Strange: True Colors during Square Enix Presents, alongside the Life is Strange Remastered Collection.

The next Life is Strange game is called Life is Strange: True Colors. It's set for release on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Google Stadia, and PC via Steam on September 10, 2021. 

Life is Strange: True Colors follows new protagonist Alex Chen as she peels back the layers of small-town lies and secrecy of Haven Springs in an effort to discover why her brother died. Empathy is Alex's unique ability, a psychic power that lets her see people's strong emotions as colorful auras, experience them herself, and even manipulate them.

Deck Nine Games Vice President Jeff Litchford 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.

True Colors features a soundtrack with contributions from Radiohead, Gabrielle Aplin, and Phoebe Bridgers.

Square Enix is releasing three editions of Life Is Strange: True Colors, a standard digital and physical edition, a digital-only deluxe edition, and a digital-only ultimate edition.

The standard edition includes just the game and will cost $59.99 

True Colors' deluxe edition retails for $69.99 and includes Life is Strange: Wavelengths, a story set one year before Alex arrives in Haven Springs. Wavelengths will release after True Colors. It also includes four LiS hero outfits.

Later in 2021, Square Enix is releasing the Life is Strange Remastered Collection, which includes remastered versions of Life is Strange and Life is Strange: Before the Storm.

Life is Strange: True Colors ultimate edition includes Wavelengths, the costumes, and the Life is Strange remastered collection for $79.99.


Josh Broadwell started gaming in the early '90s. But it wasn't until 2017 he started writing about them, after finishing two history degrees and deciding a career in academia just wasn't the best way forward. You'll usually find him playing RPGs, strategy games, or platformers, but he's up for almost anything that seems interesting.
