Life is Strange: True Colors features a new protagonist named Alex Chen, who is portrayed by Erika Mori. Alex possesses a supernatural ability–or curse, as she calls it–that grants the power of empathy. Alex can experience and absorb the emotions of people around her, which is visually expressed through colored auras. Players must control Alex’s empathic powers to discover the truth behind her brother’s death.
“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,” said Jeff Litchford, Vice President at Deck Nine Games. “All of the advancements in storytelling, development technology, and premium voice acting that we have made since Life is Strange: Before the Storm will allow players to be more immersed in the compelling world of Life is Strange: True Colors than ever before.”
Life is Strange: True Colors releases on September 10, 2021 for PlayStation 5, PS4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, PC, and Google Stadia. Three editions will be available: Standard, Deluxe, and Ultimate. Pre-ordering the game grants additional in-game outfits for Alex. Life is Strange: True Colors will also launch all at once as a single release, a first for the franchise. Gone are the days of waiting months between episode drops.
