In an unexpected midweek surprise, Square Enix has announced that episode one of narrative adventure Life Is Strange will be free to play from tomorrow.
Xbox One, 360, PS3, PS4, Mac and PC owners will all have the chance to sample Dontnod’s critically acclaimed episodic story without spending a penny.
Square did, however, mention that the generous discount would apply for an indefinite amount of time. So if you’re looking for a distraction from the seasonal summer games drought, set it downloading while you still can!
Dontnod Chief Exec, Oskar Guilbert stated:
“We’re really glad that Square Enix have decided to give the first episode away for free so more players can begin their journey and see why people have fallen in love with the game for themselves.”
