Life Is Strange: True Colors is clearly showing off with its opening scene, which publisher Square Enix has shared online today. The scene centres on protagonist Alex Chen, who’s chatting with her social worker about her time in foster care and the new life that awaits her in Haven Springs with her brother, Gabe.

The entire scene focuses entirely on Alex, and allows the game to showcase its new performance capture. It’s actually really impressive stuff – you can read exactly how the protagonist is feeling just through her eyes and body language. Obviously we’ve seen this kind of technology used in titles like The Last of Us before, but it represents a serious step up from previous Life Is Strange games.

What are your thoughts on this opening scene? Are you excited to learn more about the game? You’ll get to follow Alex’s entire journey starting 10th September on PlayStation 5 and PS4.
