Life Is Strange Remastered Collection

Life Is Strange Remastered Collection is coming to multiple platforms next month, including Google Stadia. Strange.

Played Life Is Strange yet? Of course you have. Not me, I was waiting for Life Is Strange Remastered Collection which is out next month.

That’s a lie – I haven’t got around to playing the originals, despite the good things said about Square Enix’s series. In this remaster, character models have been updated, improved motion capture, and players can experience legendary leads, Max and Chloe.

A five-minute clip has been released detailing the improvements in Life Is Strange Remastered Collection. These include:

  • Now rendering in native 4K in Unreal 4, with a rebuilt lighting pipeline.
  • New and updated 4K-ready character models with increased polycounts and additional bones are visible throughout
  • All character models feature more emotive and expressive animation, more natural hair physics, and updated tears, injuries, and more.
  • Max’s tears and expressions are more detailed with updated facial SFX
  • Nathan and Chloe’s facial expressions and eyelines have been revamped
  • New lip-sync animation throughout.
  • New and updated scenic materials for reflectivity and texture.
  • Updated models and materials for key props, ex. the bucket in the bathroom

… and here’s the trailer:

Life Is Strange Remastered Collection is available from the 1st of February for PS4 and Xbox One (compatible with next-gen), Steam, GeForce Now and, heh, Stadia.
