Dontnod Announces Life Is Strange Episode 1 Is Going to Be Free on PSN Starting July 21

Now you can play it and decide whether it’s worth it or not.

Life is Strange

We haven’t heard from Dontnod Entertainment for quite a while now, but maybe because they are currently busy working on their vampire RPG game, Vampyr.

However, this didn’t stop them from being generous to their fanbase and offering the first episode from their critically-acclaimed episodic psychotic adventure, Life is Strange, for free. The first episode will be free to download starting from July 21 on PS4 and PS3 through PSN, and you’re allowed to play it even if you don’t have a valid PS Plus subscription.

It’s been a little while since you heard from us but we wanted to share something special with you today. Starting on July 21 we will be giving away Life is Strange Episode 1: Chrysalis entirely for free on both PS4 and PS3! This offer is available to everyone (regardless of whether you’re a PS Plus subscriber or not) and will run indefinitely.

The release of this first episode for free and in turn seeing so many more people begin their journey into Arcadia Bay is something we’ve therefore really been looking forward to.

The last episode of the series launched back in October last year, and the whole franchise received high scores from outlets, due to shocking moments and plot twists that happened in the final episodes.
