The massive choice-based gaming hit Life Is Strange has appeared on Apple’s iTunes store, scheduled for release on iOS devices by December 14th. While the iOS version will only include Episode 1 in the base purchase, Episodes 2 and 3 will be available through in-app purchase, with Episodes 4 and 5 scheduled for early 2018. A season pass will also be available for purchase to access Episodes 2-5 in a bundle, promising players a 10% saving on this option as opposed to buying each Episode individually. As an additional sweetener, buying the game will also provide access to exclusive Life Is Strange iMessage stickers as well as choice sharing through social media.
The game itself follows the story of Max Caulfield, a photography student who discovers her ability to rewind time while saving her best friend Chloe Price. Following its original release in January 2015, Life Is Strange attracted rave reviews, with many citing the character development and use of time travel mechanics as its most positive aspects. This led to the game receiving several accolades, including the British Academy Game Award for Best Story as well as Apple’s own award for Game of the Year in 2016.
