A launch trailer kicks off Life is Strange’s release today
With the release of Remember Me developer DONTNOD’s heady, time-shifting episodic adventure Life is Strange slated for later today on the Playstation Store, Xbox Live Marketplace and Steam, the developer has released a launch trailer giving us a glimpse of what’s to come in the game’s debut chapter.
“We are all thrilled at the idea that players finally have their hands on our new game.” writes DONTNOD’s Jmax in the developer’s latest presser. “It’s been an intense and sometimes challenging journey, but it was definitely worth it. And well, it’s far from over, as the team here is very hard at work on parts 2 to 5, ensuring they get released at timely intervals so you always know when the next one is going to drop”
“The first episode that you’ll play is called Chrysalis and it’s basically an introduction to the world of Life is Strange. You will see Max and Chloe reunite and you will make important choices that will influence their destiny. You will see some of the short-term consequences of those choices but bear in mind that there are also mid and long-term repercussions that will pan out over the course of the later episodes, in a butterfly effect manner. So you might rewind your choices as much as you want in the short term but you will never know what might happen further down the line. And of course we’ll ensure that you always get surprised by unexpected turns of events and that your experience really feels unique and customized by your choices.”
A free trial will be made available for Life is Strange on PS4, PS3, Xbox One and Xbox 360 so you can get a feel for the title, which puts an emphasis on story and decision making over puzzles. However, at just $4.99 and spanning 2-4 hours, it makes more sense to just plunk that cool Abraham Lincoln down and enjoy the ride.
