Life Is Strange: True Colors Begins 3-Week-Long Rollout Of Patches
Developer Deck Nine will fix bugs across all platforms and address technical issues by October 4 — while investigating other user feedback.
For all times, Deck Nine, the developer is Strange: True Colors, is rolling out patches over the subsequent few weeks to deal with a number of the recurrent issues following the game’s launch. True Colors was released on September 10 and received praise for being one of the simplest installments of the Life is Strange series.
Upon launching True Colors, players across multiple platforms experienced issues attempting to access pre-order bonuses like outfit packs, which kept developers on their feet. They addressed players’ concerns with quick fixes that involved restarting consoles or turning ray-tracing off. Despite this, though, True Colors had a well-received launch, partially thanks to players immediately having the whole game at their disposal — Life is Strange: True Colors isn’t episodic-like other Life Is Strange games.
Life is Strange community manager Joshua Elkington recently released a launch update detailing the three-week rollout of patches intended to resolve the technical shortcomings of True Colors. the primary updates launch today and resolve Ray-Tracing issues on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, and Windows Store versions. It also fixes problems save-file in Steam and some visual concerns that Elkington refers to as “black screen” and “aggressive lighting” issues.
Two other patches will release over the subsequent fortnight, on September 27 and October 4. These will address bugs present on all platforms and other console-specific fixes. The last patch is about to specifically resolve framerate drops on PS5 and Xbox — all while deciding HDR functionality on Steam. Deck Nine is also currently investigating various other bugs delivered to its attention, such as low framerate and game crash on PC and other issues on the PlayStation 5. That being said, these minor bug fixes over the subsequent three weeks are small steps developers can fancy maintain True Color’s high-quality reception.
Life Is Strange is an immersive experience that echoes the real world with supernatural embellishments. The series already features a following that would potentially grow because it continues to realize traction and undergoes these technical fixes. Later this year, the series will expand to a completely new platform — the Nintendo Switch will receive a Life Is Strange Remastered Collection with True Colors, continuing the series’ momentum, even after launch.
Life is Strange: True Colors is now available on the PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and Google Stadia, and it’ll launch on Nintendo Switch in 2021.
