The prelude to Square Enix's (almost "cult") game, "Life is Strange", will be released for Linux and macOS this fall, ported once again by Feral Interactive It is made available through Steam.
The game "Life is Strange" was certainly one of the best and most exciting games I could ever play on Linux. The game of choices determining the way that history has something that pleased me a lot.
When I heard about the release of prequelBy telling the story that happens before the game itself my anxiety to play has increased!
Unfortunately in day one The game was not available for Linux and MacOS, to the point that I had even forgotten that I wanted to play it, but today I was surprised by an email from our friends. Feral Interactive stating that in addition to "Rise of the Tomb Raider"the next North American spring will bring us too"Life is Strange: Before the Storm"
If you have never seen a "Life is Strange" gameplay and don't know the game's proposal very well, I invite you to watch what we did on the channel, check it out:
If you enjoyed the first video, know that we have a full series zeroing the first episode on the channel, just click here to access the playlist.
Like the first title, "Before the Storm"also split into chapters and will be released to Linux and macOS with them all ready, debugged and released. Currently the game is coming out for $ 44.99 on Steam with all episodes included and their version Deluxe, which delivers an extra episode, new clothes for the characters and some other extra details, costs around 65 reais.
"Life is Strange: Before the Storm"It is a new story independent of the previous title, but it takes place in the same universe. It is divided into three parts, which take place three years before the first game of the franchise.
If in the previous game we were playing with Max, this second title we played with her best friend Chloe Price, a 16 year old who makes an unexpected friendship with Rachel Amber, a beautiful and popular girl and we understand what happened to her. the main character before the arrival of Max.
When Rachel discovers a family secret that threatens to destroy her world, the new friendship with Chloe that gives her strength to move on. Now together, girls need to confront each other's demons and find a way to overcome them.
The main highlights of the game, according to the developers, are:
Narrative adventure influenced by choices and consequences;
Alternative endings that vary according to your decisions;
"Gossip" System – A risk / consequence conversation mode that allows Chloe to use her sharp tongue to tease or convince other characters;
Paint walls to make "our mark";
Choose Chloe's clothes and cause different reactions on the other characters;
Outstanding soundtrack, with licensed indie music, and original theme, just like in the first game.
The gameplay very similar to the first title, with few different elements, the graphics received a visual polish, although they seem "outdated", this was clearly a consciously applied artistic concept. Anyway, the highlight of "Life is Strange" was never its graphics (although I like them) but its engaging story that holds you back and makes you want to play one chapter after another, as if you were watching a series from Netflix who really likes it.
The Feral Interative version
Feral Interative will once again make the game portable for Linux and macOS and it seems that once again we will have Vulkan as the graphical API for the title.
The game itself is not too heavy, modest machines are able to run it with minimal graphics.
We currently have no specifications for Linux and macOS available, but the minimum requirements for Windows are:
– 64-bit operating system;
– Core i3 processor, AMD Phenom X4 or higher;
– 3 GB of RAM;
– AMD Radeon R7 250 or Nvidia GTX 650 video card;
– 14 GB of storage.
We can take these values as a base and estimate that the Linux and macOS versions will not be much different from that.
The game's audio will be in English only, but we will have subtitles in English, French, German, Italian, Spanish and Chinese (Simplified).
Once the game is released we will bring gameplays to the channel, so stay tuned!
See you next time!
