Life Is Strange PS4

It took Telltale Games a fair few attempts, but The Walking Dead proved that episodic gaming can be done well. However, while the developer's re-purposed its model with series like The Wolf Among Us and Tales from the Borderlands, the regular repetition is starting to expose a few flaws in its format. As such, we're eager to see how a completely different developer approaches proceedings.

DONTNOD's clearly learned a lot from the Californian company, as its upcoming Life Is Strange will follow the same five episode season structure as the abovementioned outlet's output. The key difference is that the French developer's telling its own story, rather than one based on an existing world or character. All of this is outlined in the video embedded below.

However, if you're looking for a crash course, the title sees you play as photography student Maxine Caulfield, who returns to her hometown Arcadia Bay, Oregon to find her friend Chloe Price grieving for her deceased father and missing pal Rachel Amber. You'll be searching for the latter, and will have the ability to rewind time to solve puzzles or re-experience significant events.

The game's due out on the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3, with the first episode set to premiere later this month. If you're eager to learn more, though, check out the behind-the-scenes video embedded below. Is there anything that you'd do differently if you could turn back the clocks?
