Recently the Life is Strange: True Colours team caught some heat when it was revealed that the game would not offer a 60fps option on next-gen platforms despite being more than capable of it. At the time, the team justified it as a creative decision – however they have now gone back on this and added a 60fps mode after all.
Making the announcement on their blog, Joshua Elkington, the Global Community Manager for Life is Strange: True Colours said “Hi all, Once again, thank you for your patience during the launch of Life is Strange: True Colors and Life is Strange Wavelengths, with a special thanks from the team for your continued help in identifying the issues some of you have faced.”
As part of this latest update, the PS5 and Xbox Series X versions of True Colours now offer “High Resolution / High Performance (up to 60fps) mode/s”. Previously, the game was locked to 30fps, with a representative claiming that “Life is Strange: True Colors was designed to be a cinematic, performance-driven narrative adventure. Capping at 30fps allowed us to target higher cinematic fidelity on every platform.”
With this new update, it seems that the team either went back on this mentality, or the backlash was simply much too strong. Either way, more options is always good, and so it is encouraging to see the team at Deck Nine listening to fans.
While PC players could always run the game at 60fps, there was no option to enable HDR. Thankfully this has now been added, meaning that PC players can experience Life is Strange with its ‘Truest Colours’ enabled. the full patch notes can be found HERE.
