Life is Strange: True Colors was announced last week, the new setup and theme make it look like Life is Strange 3, though it is part 4 of the game series. Created by Deck Nine, the creator of the prequel Before the Storm and not the main developer Dontnod.
A rare sight Alex Chen, an Asian American lead hides her curse: the psychic power of Empathy. She possesses the ability to absorb the emotions of others and see their auras, although sometimes it overwhelms her. She has to embrace her powers to find the truth about her brother who dies in a so-called accident.
The story starts with Alex moving over to the fictional Colorado town of Haven Springs to reunite with her brother Gabe. He is killed in a tragic accident, an event that sets the game in motion. Everyone believes it to be an accident while Alex thinks it has more to it than what meets the eyes. She uses her powers to seek the truth.
