Life is Strange: Episode 1 Set for Release in January

Square Enix has announced that the five-part episodic game Life is Strange will be receiving its first episode on January 30 next year.

From the information provided, the first episode will launch simultaneously in both North America and Europe on the same date and be available on the PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC.

It will be priced at $4.99 / £3.99, while the game’s Season Pass will set you back $16.99 / £13.99. Owners of the Season Pass will get access to all the episodes, except the first one. This is strange, since Season Passes usually feature the first episode, at least. In any case, Square Enix is offering a Complete Season Pack that will include all five episodes and which will cost $19.99 / £15.99.

In Life is Strange, players can rewind time and change the past, present and future in accordance to their choices and the ultimate consequences. As Max you must uncover the disturbing truth behind your premonitions and learn that changing the past can sometimes lead to a devastating future.

The game certainly looks intriguing. Will you be adding it to your library or be waiting for the release of titles like Bloodborne and The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt?
