Life is Strange Remastered bundles up Life is Strange and Life is Strange: Before the Storm with a few updated features to make it a “remastered” title. The absence of current-gen consoles is strange, but the games will be playable via backward compatibility.
Life is Strange Remastered includes quality-of-life enhancement such as remastered characters and environment visuals. Further, the game is running on a new engine, which allows the team to utilize better lighting and textures. The original game has also received a facelift with new fully motion-captured facial animation, and the sequel includes new outfits and a Farewell episode.
The collection tells the full story of Max and Chloe through some of the most significant parts of their lives. They suffer some rather intense situations, but the over-dramatized scenes make for a decent adventure experience that has gained many fans.
