Life Is Strange Double Exposure Announced And Arriving October 29

Return of the Max.


Square Enix and developer Deck Nine Games revealed Life Is Strange Double Exposure at the Xbox Games Showcase. The new entry in the franchise will see the return of Max Caulfield as the protagonist.

For those unfamiliar, Max was the main character in the original Life Is Strange, which debuted in 2015. With Double Exposure, she sees the death of one of her new friends, Safi. As such, Max attempts to rewind time, using a power that she hasn't called upon for years. Instead of turning back the clock, she somehow creates a parallel universe where Safi is still alive.

Described as a supernatural murder mystery, Life Is Strange Double Exposure will see Max going back and forth between the two universes to save Safi in both realities.

Life Is Strange Double Exposure is planned to launch October 29 for PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X|S. The game will also come to Nintendo Switch at some point. Square Enix also unveiled there will be three editions of the title: Standard, Deluxe, and Ultimate. If you preorder the Ultimate version, you can play the first two chapters of Life Is Strange Double Exposure early on October 15.
