Life is Strange True Colors Psychic Power of Empathy Delivers a Colorful Way for Players to Unravel the Supernatural Mystery in All-New Narrative Adventure
Today, during Square Enix Presents, Life is Strange fans across the globe were given a deep dive look at Life is Strange True Colors and the supernatural power that players will control in the award-winning series’ next major entry. Developed by Deck Nine Games, the studio behind Life is Strange: Before the Storm, in collaboration with Square Enix External Studios, Life is Strange True Colors introduces players to Alex Chen, an all-new protagonist who will use her psychic power of empathy to solve the mystery behind her brother’s murder. This mystery however will make her question everyone and everything she’s come to know in the quaint small town of Haven Springs.
Brought to life through full performance capture by rising talent Erika Mori, players will navigate Haven Springs as Alex Chen, a young woman who has long suppressed her ‘curse’: the psychic power of Empathy, a supernatural ability that allows her to experience, absorb and influence the strong emotions of others – which she sees as blazing, colored auras.
When her brother dies, in a suspicious accident, Alex must at last embrace her volatile power to find the truth, and uncover the dark secrets buried by a small town. Alex Chen’s journey, power, and future are all fully under the player’s control. The presentation gave more insight into the visuals, gameplay, and narrative impact of Alex’s psychic power of Empathy, showing how she and the player will make choices and interact with the citizens of Haven Springs, both through the use of the power during exploration and in memorable story-driven moments that present the player with complex decisions only they – using Alex’s power – can resolve.
The psychic power of Empathy affects every interaction and relationship Alex has in the game and is fully under the player’s control. Use it to reveal the secrets of Haven Springs, the hidden facets of Alex’s past, and the future of her journey to find a place to call home.
