Square Enix has revealed that the first episode of their upcoming five-part series Life Is Strange
will be arriving on January 30th, 2015 for Xbox One and Xbox 360.
The game appears to be muscling in on Telltale Games' storytelling turf, but attempts to add its own unique feature, in which players will be able to rewind and manipulate past events in order to influence outcomes. This might seem like the digital equivalent of holding your thumb on the previous page of a choose-your-own-adventure novel so that you can go back in case you don't like the outcome. However, the following trailer shows that changing the past can be a dangerous proposition in itself:
Life is Strange
episode 1 will arrive on January 30th, 2015. Each episode will cost $4.99 USD if purchased individually. The remaining episodes (2-5) can then be bought individually or all together in a Season Pass for $16.99. A Complete Season option with all five episodes is also available on Xbox One only for $19.99.
