Life is Strange is one of the most successful episodic games of all time. During the Xbox showcase on Sunday, June 9, it was revealed that the main character Max Caulfield is back in the latest release – Life is Strange: Double Exposure. This time, however, she’s quite different from before. 

If you’ve played the original game, you will know that Max has the ability to rewind time and can use it to her advantage to save people and prevent bad situations from occurring. In the end, you have two situations that the player can choose from, either save the town or save the character Chloe, so fans are hoping this instalment will reference which decision is canon. 

It’s important to note that this game is set years ahead of the original Life is Strange game where she’s the protagonist. Now in her late twenties and the photographer-in-residence at Caledon University, Max meets new friend Safi. Despite avoiding using her powers since High School, Max learns that she can exist in two timelines and traverse between them, using this ability to get to the bottom of the murder of Safi, who she finds in the woods. 

With the game’s choice-based scenarios, it will be exciting for fans to see how they can influence the plot in a ‘who did it’ murder investigation. The game will be released on Xbox Series X/S, PC and PlayStation 5 on October 29th of this year. 

Seeing Max again as the protagonist was a shock for many fans who took to social media platform X to express their excitement. Square Enix has delivered on previous Life is Strange games, revolutionising the way stories play out in games. 

Life is Strange: Double Exposure will be available to play on 29th October on console and PC
