Life is Strange Episode 1 Out Tomorrow on PS4, PS3

Hi everyone, Jmax from DONTNOD here, and I’m delighted to share the launch trailer for Life is Strange, which is out tomorrow on PS4 and PS3!

We are all thrilled at the idea that players are finally getting their hands on our new game. It’s been an intense and sometimes challenging journey, but it was definitely worth it. And, well, it’s far from over, as the team here is very hard at work on parts 2 through 5, ensuring they get released at timely intervals so you always know when the next one is going to drop.

The first episode that you’ll play is called Chrysalis, and it’s basically an introduction to the world of Life is Strange. You’ll see Max and Chloe reunite and you’ll make important choices that will influence their destiny. You will see some of the short-term consequences of those choices but bear in mind that there are also mid and long-term repercussions that will pan out over the course of the later episodes, in a butterfly effect manner. So you might rewind your choices as much as you want in the short term but you will never know what might happen further down the line. And of course we’ll ensure that you always get surprised by unexpected turns of events and that your experience really feels unique and customized by your choices.

This first episode is also an introduction to the general mechanics of the game, and although Life is Strange emphasizes story and choice over puzzles, you will also see an evolution over the next episodes in terms of how you need to combine different types of interactions and rewinds.

A trial is also coming to PS4 and PS3 so you can get a feel for the game before you make your first meaningful choice: to buy or not to buy!

So that’s it, I hope you like the trailer and the first episode, and we already can’t wait to bring you parts 2 through 5!

Enjoy.

  • c’est des singes qui travaillent chez sony ou quoi, il est où le p’tin de jeu?

  • This is becoming ridiculous two games from this week are pushed back. Still no word whatsoever on driveclub. Horrible compensation for the Christmas issues. And a sub par list of plus games out for the 4 with only infamous and injustice as our triple a titles. The best thing they have done lately is flash sales. I love Sony but God this is horrible.

  • Is this in the playstation store yet? When i try to search for it it says the game isnt there. Ive been looking everywhere and i cant figure out if my playstation is acting up or what the problem is.

  • @53 No it’s not in the store yet. Been waiting myself only a us problem though eu has it

  • All you have to do is check the @LifeIsStrange Twitter account to find this: “Hello we are aware that the game is not showing in the PS store for US customers. We are looking into this and will have an update soon.” Relax people.

  • What takes you all so long to make these games available on PSN?

  • FYI: Episode 1 is available now for PS3 and PS4 on the North American PSN site. It’s not showing up under New Games but if you search for Life is Strange it should appear.

    No word on the Season Pass options or the demo.

  • I searched for Life is Strange in the US Store and it came up with LiS Ep. 1 for both PS3 and PS4 as a PSN Game but no option to buy.
    It’s on the UK store so I could buy it there, but I have some money in my ‘US wallet’ I could use. Any updates on when the game will be ‘buyable’, and also the season pass and complete editions are going to materialise on the US Store. The UK has Complete edition as Series 1, Episodes 1-6, and Season Pass as Eps 2-6. I presume it will be the same in the US.

  • The same for me. I can see the game on the website but there is no option for buying it. People from Xbox or PC started playing it last night, it is almost 3PM now and Sony hasn’t released it yet. Why?

  • It is up in The store finely, o it is for me anyway

  • @57 the game is showing now but has no available buying option in North America..

  • I also see it in the PS Store but can’t buy it, don’t see a season pass option yet either (which is what i’m waiting for). Like I said in an earlier comment things might be sorted out around 2pm PST.

  • New update on twitter. PS4 is on, still working on PS3. And indeed PS4 version is working, 4.99$.

  • Oh pardon, in US it’s not working. I had my Canada account open. To many of them XD. But they said that on twitter so it should be working soon.

  • @62 The season pass wont be up until Episode 2. It gives you a chance to decide wether you want to blow more money on the game if you didnt like the first episode, you dont have to worry because you bought a 1-5 pass of a game you dont enjoy. I think its good on their part.

  • Would really love to buy the season pass for this during the launch weekend to show my support. I don’t want to buy the single and get charged more for episodes 2-5. Come on Sony.

  • BREAKING NEWS. The Demo has also appeared. Well done Sony. Well done.

  • The game finally came up…

  • Guys!
    It’s finally available:
    https://store.sonyentertainmentnetwork.com/#!/en-ca/games/life-is-strange-episode-1/cid=UP0082-CUSA01442_00-LIFEISSTRANGE001
    However, you can only purchase episode 1.
    According to @LifeIsStrange:
    “US PlayStation customers can purchase the complete season (1-5) on the 3rd of Feb. EP1 will be released earlier. “

  • DAMN SONY WHY ARE YOU ALL SO SLOW WITH LOADING THIS GAME UP. IT WAS AVAILABLE TO DOWNLOAD ON MY X1 AS OF 12 MIDNIGHT GEEZ

  • Season pass for 2-5 is also up.

  • Season Pass is up now, but no Complete Edition as yet, so looks like you have to buy Episode 1 separately at the moment. People should hang on, because they’ve released a Complete Edition for the UK store, so they’ll have to put this up on the US store sooner rather than later.

  • Bring down the season pass by $2 for PS+ subscribers, and we have a deal! Okay, let’s shake!

  • @73 You are beefing over $2!? HERE!!! GNIK-0JTS-UJMI now shut up and buy it!!!

  • How much full season 1+5 will be? 19,99?

    ep 1 4,99
    season pass 2-5 15,99

    ?

  • First episode was fantastic! Can’t wait for the rest!

  • Not sure if this was already asked but any possibility of a physical release containing all the episodes at a later date, like capcom is doing with re: revelations?

    Thanks :)

  • I must says this game is good, or even better than walking dead, if i make the wrong choice I can just rewind back, not like walking dead, I have to quit the game and start over again.

  • Great game so far. I really enjoyed episode 1, and I’m ready for episode 2! Any hints on when it will be coming out? Are we looking at a monthly series for this game?

    Keep up the good work, this game is quite interesting and engaging.

  • I dont know about the rest of you guys, but I want to see this on a ps vita in the near future

  • Hello, i was just curious, will this come out on ps3 disk form?i have a ps3 but i don’t have any internet connection aside from my phone and this game is not only like the walking dead but beyond two souls as well and I’d really like to purchase and play this game, so the question is-will this be on disk form, and if so, when?

  • Still not seeing this game out in the Asia PlayStation Store? It’s been 2 weeks since launch! It’s available on Steam (PC) and Xbox Live, so why not on PSN? Very disappointed. What’s the hold up?

  • HI, can anyone tell me the download size of the game and can i start playing before finishing the download, thanks
