Life is Strange and Before the Storm are being remastered

Life is Strange Remastered Collection coming this fall

Dontnod’s original supernatural adventure Life is Strange is getting a remaster this fall alongside Life is Strange: Before the Storm. If you’ve been looking for a reason to revisit Arcadia Bay, this is it.

The remastered versions will be bundled together in Life is Strange Remastered Collection, which you’ll be able to pick up standalone or in the Ultimate Edition version of Life is Strange: True Colors. Platform-wise, we’re looking at PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and Stadia. No Switch version, it seems.

What’s different? Deck Nine has “refined” the puzzles, reworked character animations with “full facial mocap,” improved the visual fidelity for characters and environments, and upgraded the “engine and lighting.” You’re also getting the standalone bonus episode, Farewell, packed in.

As fate would have it, I just started replaying Life is Strange a couple of months ago – but I only finished the first episode before I got distracted by other games. Things worked out! No rewind necessary.
