Life is Strange first episode becomes free
Players can try the debut of the episodic adventure game for no cost
Square Enix and DONTDOD Entertainment have announced that the first episode of the adventure game Life is Strange will be available to download for free on all platforms, starting indefinitely from July 21, 2016.
"We still cannot believe the response we’ve had from players of Life is Strange," said Oskar Guilbert, CEO of DONTDOD Entertainment. "We’re really glad that Square Enix have decided to give the first episode away for free so more players can begin their journey and see why people have fallen in love with the game for themselves."
Life is Strange follows the story of Max Caulfield, a photography senior who discovers she can rewind time while saving her best friend Chloe Price. The pair soon finds themselves investigating the mysterious disappearance of fellow student Rachel Amber, uncovering a dark side to life in Arcadia Bay.
Life is Strange was released over the course of five episodes last year, on PC, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS4 and PS3.
