Life is Strange: Wavelengths Trades Superpowers for Radio DJing

But it's still gay as hell.

Life is Strange: True Colors is just under a month away, but Deck Nine and Square-Enix are already teasing its DLC prequel that will take away the main game’s emotion-sensing superpowers to tell the story of Steph Gingrich, a supporting character.

The episode, titled Life is Strange: Wavelengths, will launch a few weeks after True Colors on September 30. In it, you’ll be able to see Steph’s early days working at a radio station/record store, which will be a key part of her character in True Colors.

As Steph doesn’t have superpowers, playing as her won’t delve into the same supernatural elements of True Colors and other games in the series. Instead, Wavelengths will be about choosing music to play on the radio, ad-libbing through commercials, giving advice to callers, swiping on the limited options on dating apps as a queer person in a small town, and exploring the record store.

Check out the trailer below:

Steph first appeared as a minor character in Life is Strange: Before the Storm, so she’ll be getting a demonstrably bigger role in True Colors, where she’ll be a friend and potential love interest for main character Alex Chen.

In other news:

Life is Strange: True Colors is coming to PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and Stadia on September 10. A Switch version is also on the way, but it was delayed until later in the year. If you were hoping to either play the first two games in the series for the first time or replay them with the Life is Strange: Remastered Collection, that compilation was delayed into next year. In the meantime, why not play 2019 GOTY, Actually, Life is Strange 2?
