Life Is Strange True Colors is the series’ first instalment without any episodes but its game length is still just as long as previous adventures.
Rather than Max or Chloe, Sean or Daniel, the game instead stars Alex Chen who has the superhero ability of empathy. This power allows her to detect the emotions of those around her which she can then manipulate by witnessing a flurry of powerful and traumatic memories.
She is the star of the main campaign, but there is an additional DLC called ‘Wavelengths’ available provided you purchase either the Deluxe or Ultimate Editions of Life is Strange: True Colors.
How long is Life is Strange True Colors to beat?
Life is Strange True Colors is roughly 10-15 hours long to beat.
This estimation comes courtesy of Rachael Fiddis whose glowing DualShockers review is available to check out. It has no episodes unlike previous instalments, so this is the first time that the game will be available to play completely from day one.
Square Enix’s first and second seasons boasted five episodes altogether, and each one lasted roughly 2-3 hours. This means True Colors pretty much has the same length despite its lack of staggered chapters.
How to get the Wavelength story
You will only be able to play the Wavelength story in Life is Strange True Colors if you buy either the Deluxe or Ultimate edition.
It takes place before the events of the new game, and it will put you in the shoes of Stephanie Gingrich who fans will recognise from Before the Storm. Although you don’t need to play as her to to understand True Colors‘ story, the DLC is positioned as a prequel to its events.
