We already knew that Life is Strange: Remastered Collection, a compilation of the first two installments with enhanced visuals and animations. And today, Square Enix has announced that the game will be available on all major platforms on February 1, 2022.
The game was supposed to release on September 30 of this year, but in August, it was announced that the game would be delayed into next year, citing ongoing challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic as the main reason for pushing back the game’s release date.
Life is Strange: Remastered Collection bundles the first Life is Strange and its prequel Before the Storm. The game was announced in March as part of Square Enix Presents live stream. In addition to enhanced visuals and animations, the remasters will also include lighting upgrades, a new game engine, while the remaster for Life is Strange will include new, fully motion-captured facial animations.
The game is available as a standalone purchase for $40 on digital storefronts, such as the PlayStation Store. Additionally, the game was included for those that purchased the ultimate edition of Life is Strange: True Colors, the latest entry in the series released earlier this month.
