Wavelength DLC Trailer Releases Tomorrow
The Life is Strange Remastered Collection, which was originally scheduled to be released on September 30th shortly following Life is Strange: True Colors, is now delayed to early 2022. In addition, the Life is Strange: Wavelengths DLC focusing on Steph Gingrich, the fan-favorite Dungeons & Dragons master from Life is Strange: Before the Storm, will release on September 30th.
The original Life is Strange game, while praised for its great narrative and storytelling, was criticized for poor face animation and lip sync quality. The remastered collection aims to solve this issue by adding full facial motion capture. Moreover, the remastered collection will shift the graphics away from its signature painted art style in order to achieve a more realistic look for the characters and the games.
On the other hand, Life is Strange: True Colors will feature a returning character, Steph Gingrich, as a possible love interest to the new protagonist Alex Chen. Introduced in Life is Strange: Before the Storm as the beanie-wearing, theatrical stage manager, Steph has moved to Life is Strange: True Colors’ primary location, Haven Springs, before the events of Life is Strange. The Wavelengths DLC will focus on Steph’s arrival to Haven Springs and is set a year before the events of Life is Strange: True Colors.
In this DLC, you, as Steph, will step into her role as the town radio DJ, personalize her record store, and play the role of a GM in a tabletop RPG. In addition, the DLC will introduce an “old friend” – possibly Mikey – as well as feature music from two iconic Life is Strange artists, Alt-J (Something Good) and Foals (Spanish Sahara).
