The first episode of Life is Strange, Square Enix and Dotnod Entertainment’s episodic adventure game, comes out on January 30. Dotnod confirmed to Siliconera that new episodes for Life is Strange are scheduled to come out every six weeks.
Life is Strange: Episode 1 – Chrysalis follows Max Caulfield, a high school senior in Oregon, as she discovers her power to rewind time. Similar to a visual novel or Telltale’s The Walking Dead series, players make choices that change how the story unfolds. Max can use her power to see how characters react to a decision and then rewind time to make a difference choice. The time rewinding power is also used for puzzles since Max retains any items she picks up when she rewinds time.
Life is Strange will be released for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC. Each episode will cost $4.99. Square Enix also has a season pass available with all five episodes for $19.99.
