We’re excited to reveal Life is Strange: Double Exposure – coming to Xbox Series X|S, PS5 and PC, via Windows Store and Steam, on October 29, 2024, and also coming to Nintendo Switch with more details to follow.

This brand-new supernatural murder mystery adventure sees budding photographer Max Caulfield embroiled in a gripping thriller across two timelines.

If you’re a Life is Strange aficionado, you’ll no doubt recognize the name – Max is the fan-favorite protagonist of the original game. New players need not worry though, because Life is Strange: Double Exposure is a fully standalone experience that requires no knowledge of prior games to enjoy.

You can get a tease of what to expect in the new trailer. Take a look:

What’s Life is Strange: Double Exposure about?

Max Caulfield, now photographer-in-residence at the prestigious Caledon University, discovers her closest new friend, Safi, dead in the snow.


To save her, Max tries to Rewind time – a power she possesses but has not used in years. But instead of reversing events, it opens the way to a parallel timeline where Safi is still alive, and still in danger!

Max realizes that the killer will strike again soon, in both versions of reality.

It’s up to Max to shift between the two parallel timelines to both solve and prevent her friend’s murder. But with a relentless detective on her back, and the killer growing closer with every clue uncovered, can Max survive long enough to do the impossible?

When can you learn more?

A tantalizing mystery, yes? If you’re eager to learn more, we’ll be holding a special livestream on June 13 at 9am PT /5pm BST / 6pm CET.
