Life is Strange Episode 5 Gets October Release Date

Square-Enix and Dontnod Entertainment have announced a release date for the fifth and final episode of their episodic RPG series Life is Strange, bringing the story of time-traveling Max and her journey to stop the impending doomsday of her small Pacific Northwest town from tearing apart everything in sight. Life is Strange has had a shaky release schedule, fret with delays and down right unknowns, which is why the developer prefers against announcing release dates ahead of time. “We don’t normally announce a date until we know the game is 100% ready but in the spirit of Max’s birthday (today) we wanted to let you know early that we are aiming to release Episode 5 ‘Polarized’ October 20.” said the developer in a press release.

The developer notes that while many things can change, the release date is a window the team is really trying hard to meet, and while longer than what most fans would have wanted, they want to ensure the quality of the series finale. Life is Strange Episodes 1-4 are available now on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and Windows PC.
