Square Enix Announces Life Is Strange

Life Is Strange (Chloe)

A lot of people has been criticizing developer Square Enix for releasing too many remakes and reboots (such as Tomb Raider and Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition,) instead of working on an entirely new IP, but that ends today. The company has announced Life Is Strange, a digital-only episodic adventure where each new chapter develops according to the choices you’ve made in previous episodes.

In Life Is Strange, players assume the role of Max Caulfield who has just arrived to Arcadia Bay, Oregon after spending some time away from the city. But as soon as he comes back, he realizes that Rachel Amber, a girl who went to the same high school as Max, has disappeared and there are some mysterious circumstances surrounding this event. To unravel the mystery, Max reunites with old friend Chloe and that’s when the protagonist realizes he has the ability to rewind time.

It’s worth pointing out that to create Life Is Strange, Square Enix teamed up with DONTNOD Entertainment (the company behind Remember Me.) The game’s coming out to PC, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4, but a precise release date hasn’t been announced yet.
