Life Is Strange Gets New Screenshots Showing Dontnod’s Lovely Art Style; It looks Super-Sweet on PS4

Square Enix and Remember Me creators Dontnod Entertainment announced Life Is Strange two days ago, and today the publisher sent in another slew of new screenshots.

The screenies (which were captured from the PC version) perfectly showcase the lovely art style that the good folks at Dontnod used for the game, and that is intended to make the game look almost like concept art.  Not surprisingly (or maybe quite surprisingly) the developers told me today that every single texture in Life Is Strange is hand painted.

Incidentally, today I got to see the game in motion on PS4 at Gamescom, and it looks extremely sweet (the game will also be released on PS3, Xbox One and Xbox 360), with an almost crazy attention to detail and really impressive environmental design.

From what I could see there’s no evident difference between the PS4 version and its counterpart on PC, in fact I had to verify with Square Enix which version the screenshots below belong to, because I couldn’t tell it wasn’t the same I saw in action just a couple hours ago.

The Square Enix rep I talked to mentioned that it looks “equally awesome” on PC and both next gen versions and the screenshots can be considered platform-agnostic.

Check out the gallery below and watch this space: there’s more coming soon.
