We finally have a release date for Life is Strange: Remastered Collection. It’s on February 1, 2022, for PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and Google Stadia.

This version was first announced back in March 2021. Players were given two options to get the game. They can buy it as a standalone release or as part of the Ultimate Edition, which also comes with Life is Strange: True Colors.

The collection has the remastered versions of the original Life is Strange and Life is Strange: Before the Storm. Features include:

  • Remastered character and environment visuals
  • New engine and lighting upgrades
  • Brand new, fully motion captured facial animation in Life is Strange
  • Before the Storm includes Deluxe content:
    • Outfits
    • “Farewell” episode
    • Zombie Crypt outfit

True Colors is Out

While waiting for the remastered version, players can now enjoy Life is Strange: True Colors. This game was released early this month and is available on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. It’s also available on next-gen consoles PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S.

This time around the story is focused on a young Asian American named Alex Chen. After years of being away, she finally reunites with her brother Gabe. However, Gabe suddenly dies due to a mysterious accident and it’s up to Alex to investigate and find out the truth. Helping her along are her empathic powers.

An update for the game has recently been released which addresses some of the early issues encountered. You can read more about it here.

There are also other ways to have fun without actually playing the game. For example, everyone can enjoy the Life is Strange: True Colors soundtrack. It has 12 tracks all composed and performed by Australian folk and indie pop group Angus & Julia Stone.

Players can also enjoy the game by just watching others play it. Twitch released the Crowd Choice Extension that allows streamers to involve their fans and viewers. “Suggestions,” for example, has streamers look at what viewers suggested and make a decision. “Full Democracy,” on the other hand, has viewers take full control.
