Life Is Strange Sells 1 Million As Episode 4 Preps For Release

Life Is Strange is gearing up to drop episode 4, the highly awaited entry into the five-part series from developer Dontnod Entertainment. Square Enix is publishing the game on home consoles and PC and some interesting new facts have surfaced ahead of episode 4’s July 28th release.

Square Enix has announced that the game has sold more than a million copies across the Xbox 360, PS3, PS4 Xbox One and PC. DSO Gaming did a little bit of scouting on Steamspy to discover that the game’s sales on Steam have a lifetime ownership of just over 430,000, as of the writing of this article, putting it at more than 40% of the total sales that the series has moved since episode 1.

You can check out the launch trailer for episode 4 below, as it preps for the launch on home consoles and PC.

Life is Strange Episode 4 Launch Trailer (ESRB)

Max realizes that changing the past can lead to painful consequences and that time is not a great healer. Her investigation into the disappearance of Rachel Amber begins to reach a thrilling conclusion as she finds the Dark Room. Will the answers lie within? Or will there just be trouble?

Is it me or is there a really, really strong Donnie Darko vibe generating from that trailer?

The game itself isn’t really my kind of thing mostly for the fact that it’s a teenage drama wrapped around an intriguing sci-fi mystery. I like the sci-fi part but not the teenage drama part; and the characters annoy the piss out of me because I really don’t like teenagers and their whiny behavior.

However, I can understand Dontnod’s attempt to write a game that directly appeals to the 14 through 19 demographic as an honest, wholehearted story about dealing with the day-in and day-out trouble of peer pressure and social life as a socially-awkward teenage misfit while the world seems to be moving full steam ahead towards its own collapse.

Also, I could see this making an interesting movie if it wasn’t a teen drama, but knowing Hollywood they would make it a teen drama.

Anyway, Life is Strange: Episode 4 is due for release on July 28th, and you can learn more about the game by paying a visit to the official website or you can keep your eyes peeled on the digital storefronts as you anxiously await for the next title in the five-part series to drop.

  1. I want to play this game but am waiting for it to go on sale. I don’t buy anything unless it’s on sale.

    1. I’m the same, but especially with Episodic games. Even if they are on sale I won’t get them until they’re completed.

      1. I don’t mind waiting for episodes. But they generally don’t go on sale until they are completed anyway.

  2. Life is Strange has always given me a Donnie Darko vibe. Donnie Darko is better, though.

    I think LiS is okay as a game, especially with such a low price tag. Could be better. Episode 3 made me wonder where the hell they’re going with the story though. There’s way too much focus on stuff that does not seem to matter at all, and that one main character I really don’t care about, to the point they should rename the game to “She is Strange”.
