Since it debuted in the beginning of this year, developer Dontnod Entertainment’s Life is Strange has told a tale of the growing pains of young adulthood with a mix of intrigue and supernatural oddities, with the game’s finale on target to release at the end of October.

A new post from publisher Square Enix’s European blog detailed that Life is Strange: Episode 5, the season finale for the title, is currently targeting release on October 20th, 2015 and bringing the story of Maxine and Chloe to an end.

Dontnod Entertainment clarified in its post that the release date isn’t firm just yet, as “the episode is getting closer to submission and we have almost completed development,” but in the game’s spirit of today marking game protagonist Maxine’s birthday, Dontnod assured that “the team are working really hard to try and hit this date.”

Life is Strange is currently available for PS4, Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360, and PC, with the game’s fifth and final episode, “Polarized,” expected to release on October 20th, 2015.
