Life is Strange's first episode will be free for all on July 21

The first episode will be free across all platforms, which means you no longer have no excuse to try Life is Strange out.


Square Enix and Dontnod Entertainment have announced the first episode of its award-winning Life is Strange will be available for free across all platforms.

Life is Strange Episode 1: Chrysalis will be available for free on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PC, and Mac starting on July 21 indefinitely.

“Life is strange has been an incredible success for Square Enix and the response we’ve had from players so far has been incredible,” Dontnod Entertainment shared in a post on PlayStation.Blog. “We’ve loved interacting with our wonderful, fast growing and engaged community and have already shared a host of gaming awards including a PEABODY and a BAFTA for best story with them. The release of this first episode for free and in turn seeing so many more people begin their journey into Arcadia Bay is something we’ve therefore really been looking forward to.”

We really enjoyed our time with Life is Strange and we recommend anyone who has been the least bit interested in the game to try out the first episode.
