Glad to see being friends with Max is no less dangerous than it's ever been.

Just to clarify this is also coming to PS5 & Switch. The OP only has Xbox & PC in the first post.

People elsewhere seem to think Max looks "too different" having aged from 22 in the original Life is Strange to 29 in this game. Some also think the voice actor is different because she doesn't sound exactly the same as she did in 2015.

To me, the character model looks and sounds about right as you'd expect.

I really should play a couple of the other games that I never finished. I really only got through the original game and the prequel game.

Looks good to me. Looks like their borrowing the story from the comics (which are worth a read), where Max's Chloe is dead in her universe but alive in a different universe and Max can kinda hop between the two.

Game is $49.99.
For $59.99 you can get the Deluxe Edition that includes
Spooky Outfit Pack
Decades Outfit Pack

Or for a whopping $79.99 you can get the Ultimate Edition that also adds
Fan Favorites Outfit Pack
Final Fantasy VII Outfit Pack
Paw Prints Cat Outfit Pack
An exclusive cat side quest that spans the game, where Max will discover a lost cat and must reunite it with its owner.
And a 2 week early access to spoil the game for everyone else.

That seems like a lot of extra money for little extra content. And the two week early window has a lot of people concerned.

I agree that $80 seems a bit much for those perks, but I’m intrigued by the cat side quests

I see no issue with getting to play the first two chapters 2 weeks early. I can’t imagine a whole lot will be spoiled, and ‘pay to play early’ is already a thing. I also don’t think the type of people to pay extra for a Life is Strange game are the type to needlessly spoil their experiences either, except for maybe Twitch streamers or something, but they’re easy to avoid.

Yeah unless you are planning on beating every game on the first day it releases there is always the chance of spoilers if you are actively trying to be spoiled.

I had thought, based on the article I saw, that it was the whole game. Just the first two chapters isn't a big deal.

Still asking for an additional $30 for that little additional content in a $50 game is insane. If it all were $10, I'd buy the Ultimate Edition (like I did for True Colors). In fact I think True Colors Deluxe Edition gave consumers more for $10 than this does for $30.

I dunno why I've never played any of these games, despite almost always hearing how great they are.
