Thread Dear Square Enix: can we kindly after 2 years get the chance to buy this Before the storm pre-order theme?
Sorry - I only work on the SEES games and such decisions need to be made on a team by team basis. Still, I'll pass on the request to my fellow Community Managers.

Thread Dear Square Enix: can we kindly after 2 years get the chance to buy this Before the storm pre-order theme?
Sorry for my delayed response to this - was tied up with Episode 4 for a while :) I distinctly remember talking to the team about making the BtS theme more widely available previously back in April 2018...! At the time I think we were unable to release the theme more widely because it was previously listed as a pre-order exclusive (platform holder policies). I'll have another look into this for you though.

Thread Life is Strange 2 |OT| Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons (Episode 3 out now!)
Heya - I flagged this issue to the team as soon as I was made aware of it, but it's possible that there's a small time delay due to steam global store propagation with the setup which somehow delayed the update for the episode store page. Could you check whether the issue persists (and if it does, please do let me know which Region Store front in particular you're using). Good to hear that It's available separately for IgelRM - fingers crossed it's all good for you too. Edit: I just saw that the issue seems to be resolved on your side, but I'll continue to keep an eye out for reports.

Apologies for not replying to your tag yesterday evening and for the delay to responding about the situation. As it was a question that was being asked by so many, we wanted to provide a more comprehensive answer.

Tracking as much as we can - I'm passing anything I find on to the team if it appears to be an issue that is affecting multiple people. I will try to let those conversations also know that it's being tracked as well.

Thread Xbox: Life is Strange Season 2 Episode 2 will launch simultaneously on Game Pass on the same day of release
I can confirm your information to be accurate. For the removal of all doubt: Future “Life is Strange 2” episodes (incl. Ep 2) will be available in Xbox Game Pass 90 days following their original release. The Xbox Tweet mentioned in the OP answered that LiS2 Ep2 would be coming to gamepass, not that it would be available on launch day, though I can understand where the confusion arose.

Thread Life is Strange Community Thread: Arcadia Baes
Thanks for the tag and thank you to for playing! Would you be able to describe how you played LiS1 and why that's no longer possible in LiS2? You mentioned using only a mouse, so I'm wondering if there's a lack of key binding customization in LiS2 for you that LiS1 had? Once I fully understand the best possible solution for you, it'll be easier for me to pass the request on to the team. I can't guarantee anything unfortunately, but I'll certainly try.

It was initially our full intention to release with native Ultrawide support but unfortunately it wasn't possible in the end. It's something we've been discussing internally for some time, but at this point it looks unlikely that we'll manage to implement it. Really sorry to disappoint you in this way - it wasn't our intention to mislead anyone and talking about it too early was an honest mistake on our part. Please do accept my apologies :(

Thread Life is Strange: Before the Storm |OT| Hella Walk with Me
I would argue that waking up earlier to play something is 100% healthier than starting it at midnight and finishing it at 3am or so (the latter being the definition of losing a good nights sleep), so I feel the notion that we are "making you suffer" is a bit unfair. Additionally, AUS/NZ regions got all previous episodes on console several hours ahead of the rest of the world who would then have to "suffer" as AUS/NZ people started posting spoilers and generally had a massive headstart. Edit: Not that anyone cares, but I generally go to bed early and wake up at 6am and it's made a massive change to how I go about my day and how I enjoy gaming. I can fit going to the gym in before having to head off to work or if I'm feeling lazy one morning, I can spend an hour watching a TV show or playing a game with breakfast. :)

We need to balance a time that is convenient to everyone globally with the time our own offices are all still at work. 2 Hours later would be 7pm GMT when most people in the UK office have already left. 5pm is therefore the optimum when all our locations are in the office to provide support in case it's needed. Preloading is generally available for consoles but not for PC - I discussed this on Steam previously so i'll quote myself here:

Thread Life is Strange: Before the Storm |OT| Hella Walk with Me
Hello everyone! Just wanted to drop by and give you a heads up that we've just launched an official Life is Strange Discord server. You can join it here: It's a little bit different to what you'd expect from a Discord server in that there are no chat channels. The aim of the server is to be able to deliver LiS news to those fans who live on Discord and don't otherwise follow LiS channels like Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. We want to make it easier for our communities to stay up to date with us. There are also a bunch of existing LiS communities on Discord and we don't want to split their groups between their servers and an official one, which is another reason to not have chat channels ourselves. Reactions are enabled and it's been... colourful so far! So yea, if you tend to spend a lot of time on Discord, it might be worth joining the server and then looking forward to that little red notification whenever LiS news drops :)

I've bumped our Steam dude about this again - I had been told that it would be the case that you desired so I'm checking up on that now. Unfortunately I can't comment on whether DRM will be removed at any point from any of our titles due to the sensitive nature of DRM discussions overall. Generally speaking though, in the Life is Strange team, we do always take our playerbase and community into consideration when making decisions and we don't take difficult decisions like this lightly. We always want to ensure that there is a very good reason for what we do (and in this case, a number of people in the various Denuvo threads have already guessed that reason, but they have unfortunately been ignored by others). As a side note - Denuvo was removed from BtS with episode 2's launch, in case you did skip that for that reason. That's not an indication of policies or anything we would do in future, but more an observation that we can indeed "think pragmatically" as you had requested.

For now we want to focus on Captain Spirit - It's a significant piece of content, not a quick throwaway and deserves it's place in the sun for a short while. This is the start of the LiS2 information journey though :)

This update was for the Japanese Language Pack. As with Season One, this voice pack won't be available anywhere apart from in Japan unfortunately. There are contractual reasons for that, not because we don't want you to have it. We would make it universally available if we could!

Thanks for the support! A re-release of the first vinyl set isn't possible due to the same licensing restrictions we're facing with Before the Storm (We can only offer the soundtrack as part of a bundle, not a standalone product). I agree that it is a shame to see the limited quantity of promo vinyls for season one out there being hawked by private sellers for so much :(
