Life Is Strange: True Colors is the first installment in the hit supernatural teen drama series since original developers Dontnod were bought out be Tencent and left the franchise. Since then, Deck Nine Games, who had previously worked on the prequel title Before The Storm, have taken over the franchise, and it seems that after a bit of a bump in Dontnod’s Life Is Strange 2, Deck Nine have gotten the series back on track. Now, a little over 2 weeks since the game’s launch, True Colors’ DLC episode, Wavelengths, has been released.
Wavelengths follows a fan-favourite character, Steph, as we follow her first year working in Haven Springs’ radio station KRCT. As the seasons pass by, we’ll learn about Steph’s past and her relationships as she uncovers the secrets of the town’s record store. Along the way, Steph will have to spin some discs as a DJ, give advice to concerned callers with the help of a twenty-sided die, and navigate the terrifying world of dating apps in small towns.
Deck Nine’s Senior Narrative Designer Mallory Littleton commented on the decidion to focus a whole DLC episode on Steph: “It seemed like such an obvious route to create a DLC around such a beloved character, but it was truly important to us to do it justice. We know Steph is an important character for many people, and we wanted to further that by allowing players access to her inner monologue, emotions, and internal conflicts. This DLC is very much a love letter, not only to Steph, but to our community and those who find so much of themselves in this character.”
While the upcoming remasters of Life Is Strange and Life Is Strange: Before The Storm won’t be releasing until next February, Life Is Strange: True Colors and the Wavelength DLC are available right now on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PC and Google Stadia, with a Nintendo Switch release coming soon!
