"Polarized."

12 Comments

Life is Strange's fifth and final episode, "Polarized," will launch on October 20, developer Dontnod Entertainment announced on Monday. The studio revealed the premiere date today, and also noted that development on the game isn't actually done yet and cautioned that "things can change."

"Many things can change in the lead up to release but the team are working really hard to try and hit this date," the studio said in a statement. "We know the wait may be a bit longer than some of you were hoping for but we want to ensure Episode 5 is the best it can be."

The developer went on to say that it is excited to launch the finale and thanked fans for their support thus far. "We couldn't have foreseen the great reaction Life is Strange has had so far, the community is fantastic and we love seeing/reading your reactions to each episode," it said.

Life is Strange episodes are available on PC and consoles. For more on Life is Strange, check out GameSpot's reviews of the four previous installments.

In most forms of media that involve time travel the story usually tapers towards the end and finding reasonable explanations for all the phenomena that we've been exposed to throughout gets increasingly difficult. I really do hope that the ending is cohesive with the wonderful story so far, but even if it isn't I'd still forgive them on account of the fantastic storytelling, music and characters!

I hope they release these eps together on a disc similar to Walking Dead.

Now that this series is finally finishing up, I am hoping they release all 5 on one disc, that would be awesome. I'd buy it day 1 for sure!
