Life is Strange: True Colors

Publisher Square Enix and developer Deck Nine Games have released a new trailer for Life is Strange: True Colors dubbed “Power and Consequence,” which introduces players to new protagonist Alex Chen.

Here are the latest details, via Square Enix:

In March, the latest entry in the Life is Strange series was revealed: Life is Strange: True Colors, a small-town supernatural mystery.

Brought to life through full performance capture by rising talent Erika Mori, players will navigate Haven Springs as Alex Chen, a young woman who has long suppressed her ‘curse’: the psychic power of Empathy, a supernatural ability that allows her to experience, absorb and influence the strong emotions of others—which she sees as blazing, colored auras.

When her brother dies, in a suspicious accident, Alex must at last embrace her volatile power to find the truth, and uncover the dark secrets buried by a small town. Alex Chen’s journey, power and future are all fully under the player’s control.

The presentation gave more insight into the visuals, gameplay, and narrative impact of Alex’s psychic power of Empathy, showing how she and the player will make choices and interact with the citizens of Haven Springs, both through use of the power during exploration, and in memorable story-driven moments that present the player with complex decisions only they – using Alex’s power – can resolve.

The psychic power of Empathy affects every interaction and relationship Alex has in the game and is fully under the players control. Use it to reveal the secrets of Haven Springs, the hidden facets of Alex’s past, and the future of her journey to find a place to call home.

A new trailer for Life is Strange Remastered Collection was also released, which is included with the Ultimate Edition of Life is Strange: True Colors.

Life is Strange: True Colors is due out for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC via Steam, and Stadia on September 10. Read more about the game here.
