Life is Strange: True Colors launches next Friday, 10th September, but Twitch streamers can install the add-on already to prepare for some of the game’s tougher narrative choices.
After what feels like a long wait, True Colors will mark a new era for Life is Strange with a fresh main character and new small town setting. It’s being developed by Deck Nine, the studio behind the acclaimed Life is Strange prequel Before the Storm. A Nintendo Switch version will follow later this year.

Many big streamers took #ADayOffTwitch, which caused the platform’s average peak viewership to dip by around a million viewers.
