5. Life is Strange: True Colors
Release Date: 10 September 2021
Company: Deck Nine
True Colors is the fifth installment in the Life is Strange series and the third installment of the main storyline. It will be released to Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and Stadia. This is the first time that all the game will not be released episodically, rather it will be split into five chapters to allow players to take breaks in between if they wish. The plot follows Alex Chen as she tries to uncover the mystery behind her brother’s sudden death and meets several other characters along the way. Alex has the power to experience other peoples’ emotions, even see them in the “auras” that surround them.
True Colors is said to have graphics that are better than anything we’ve seen from the previous Life is Strange installments. The team behind True Colors used full motion capture performance technology to film full body and facial performances. Creative director Zak Garriss believes this will help them deliver a more realistic and nuanced experience to players. This installment will also allow players more freedom in terms of being able to move around and explore the environment more than they have been previously allowed to.
