Following the delay, caused by global pandemic-related challenges, the Life is Strange Remastered Collection is arriving on 1st February 2022. Long after being announced in August that the collection was getting pushed back to 2022, the revised date was at last confirmed in a Square Enix press release. Fans of the original critically acclaimed episodic graphic adventure were undoubtedly disappointed by the initial delay. Nevertheless, now having a specific date to mark on the calendar definitely gives us something to look forward to.

The LiS Remastered Collection promises to bring everything players loved about 2015’s Life is Strange, along with 2017 prequel, Before the Storm, and more. The rejuvenated games will feature updated character and environment visuals, engine and lighting enhancements, and upgraded facial animations – courtesy of brand new full motion capture. Before the Storm Remastered will also include the game’s deluxe content – including extra outfits and the bonus episode “Farewell“.
Available as a standalone release or as part of Life is Strange: True Color’s Ultimate Edition, you can pre-order the Life is Strange Remastered Collection now. The two-game assortment will be out on PS4, Xbox One, PC, Nintendo Switch, and Google Stadia. Of course, this also means the Life is Strange Remastered Collection is playable on PS5 and Xbox Series X.
