Life Is Strange: True Colors Preorders: Release Date, Bonuses, Editions, And More

Life is Strange: True Colors launches this September, and preorders are available now.


We're less than a month away from the release of Life is Strange: True Colors, the third mainline game in Square Enix's acclaimed narrative adventure series. Life is Strange: True Colors releases September 10 on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Steam, and Google Stadia. Developed by Deck Nine, the team behind the Life is Strange prequel game Before the Storm, Life is Strange: True Colors is the first LiS game that will be released as a full package rather than being broken into episodes that are released over time. However, True Colors will still be told over five chapters. True Colors will also have post-launch DLC in the form of a bonus episode that releases on September 30.

Life is Strange: True Colors introduces a new protagonist named Alex Chen (played by actress Erika Mori), who travels to the idyllic mountain village of Haven Springs at the invitation of her brother Gabe. However, after her brother dies in a tragic accident, Alex becomes embroiled in the larger mystery behind what may have happened to him. Like previous Life is Strange protagonists, Alex has a secret supernatural power: the psychic power of Empathy, which allows her to experience, absorb, and manipulate the emotions of others. Like in Life is Strange 2, Alex also has two potential romantic interests in the form of her friends Ryan and Steph (the same Steph who appeared in Before the Storm).
