Life Is Strange: True Colors’ First DLC Lets You DJ And Play DnD (VIDEO)
The upcoming release of Life Is Strange: True Colors is looking to be a lovely and unique entry in the adventure series, following new protagonist Alex Chen as she investigates a fatal accident through the use of her psychic empathy powers. Though True Colors hasn’t yet been released, the game’s first DLC is already set to arrive shortly after launch in the form of a new side-story titled Wavelengths.
Centering on returning series character Steph Gingrich, Deck Nine and Square Enix revealed the Wavelengths DLC in a new trailer, setting up players’ coming stay as a radio DJ for the small town of Haven Springs. Spanning the course of four seasons, the add-on adventure is meant to flesh out Steph’s story after the main campaign as she “makes her mark on the record store, uncovers its secrets – and decides her future.”
The True Colors DLC mainly sees players complete DJing duties, exploring the inhabiting record store, and offering “D20-powered advice” to callers. Along the way, it looks like players can also take part in oodles of activities, including listening to the hits-packed soundtrack, navigating dating app prospects, as well as a game or two of Dungeons And Dragons-inspired tabletop fun. A full rundown of features is listed below.
- LIVE ON AIR
- You’re the DJ: choose records for the playlist, ‘ad lib’ your way through local commercials, and help Steph compose an original song.
- ROLL THE DICE
- Give D20-powered advice to callers with problems both serious and mundane, GM a tabletop RPG, and reach out to reconnect with an old friend.
- SMALL TOWN PRIDE
- Swipe left or right on Steph’s dating app matches, and join Steph as she reminisces about formative Prides past.
- A ROOM OF HER OWN
- See the record store change over the seasons as Steph asserts her personality, and discover its hidden history and surprising spaces as you explore.
- ALL-NEW SOUNDTRACK
- Hits from Girl in Red, Alt-J, Portugal, The Man, Foals, Hayley Kiyoko, Maribou State, and more set the tone for Steph’s journey, each packing an emotional punch.
The reveal of Wavelengths comes after the new title’s companion release, Life Is Strange Remastered Collection, saw a significant delay. Not a day after this unfortunate news, it looks like the release of True Colors has now also been altered, albeit, in a smaller manner. According to the official Life Is Strange social media, the Nintendo Switch version of True Colors will not be ready in time for launch and will instead release sometime later this year. An updated release date was said to be announced “over the coming weeks.”
Additionally, Life is Strange: True Colors for Nintendo Switch is running a little late.
We won’t be quite ready to release on September 10 – but we still plan to release this year.
Please watch our channels for a confirmed date over the coming weeks!
