Life Is Strange Remastered Collection Announced (VIDEO)
As promised, Square Enix dropped new announcements regarding the Life is Strange series, revealing an all-new installment to the emotional story-based series called True Colors as well as a remastered version of DONTNOD’s original two releases. Dubbed the Life Is Strange Remastered Collection, 2015’s original Life Is Strange and the 2017 follow-up Before the Storm are assembled into a single package with each game including improved visual and animation updates to accommodate modern platforms.
Remastering the original two Life is Strange games is sure to be a treat for fans of the series and offers the best means for new players to hop aboard the games in the modern-day. Set for an initial release on September 10th, the Life Is Strange Remastered Collection is confirmed for PC, Google Stadia, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S platforms, with the two-title compilation arriving free for those who purchase the Ultimate Edition of Life Is Strange: True Colors. A standalone release for the collection is planned for later on in 2021.
This release strategy may sound familiar as it’s similar to what Insomniac did with Spider-Man: Miles Morales, with the 2020 title including a remastered version of the original 2018 Spider-Man with Ultimate Editions of the release. However, Life Is Strange Remastered Collection is handling things a bit differently from Insomniac by not making the remasters exclusive and announcing a standalone release for the collection.
Life Is Strange Remastered was only one of the games announced at the new Square Enix Presents showcase with several other upcoming releases also detailed during the event. In addition to the aforementioned new Life Is Strange: True Colors, a new Black Panther DLC was confirmed to be on the way for Marvel’s Avengers and new footage and details were unveiled for the gorgeous open-world project Forspoken after receiving an official name-change from Project Athia.
