Life is Strange Season Finale Trailer Flips Through Fond, Super Sad Memories

This trailer for the final episode of Life is Strange is already giving me residual feels. If you haven’t played any of the other episodes and are waiting to play all five at once, there’s two things I want to tell you: why do you hate your emotions enough to want to play through all five episodes, and also there are spoilers ahead. One of those is a joke.

I know people exaggerate a lot when it comes to this game. There’s many superlatives used in the way people talk about it, and I think that sets people up for the wrong expectations. So with that being said, I’m going to try my best to describe this trailer without setting the bar too high.

This trailer was made for all the folks who’ve been tagging along with the series. It’s filled with spoilers, all of which are focused on pivotal moments throughout the game’s skewed, Möbius strip-like timeline. But these moments are cut together in such a way that they fly by quick, making it feel like someone’s flipping through these memories like they’re digging through a pile of old photographs. And that’s why this trailer’s so neat: it’s the game, wrapped up in a neat (yet twisted) little package that entices and is going to make the launch feel that much further away.

Dammit, Dontnod.
