Life is Strange Episode 5 Walkthrough

Life Is Strange is a five part episodic game that sets out to revolutionize story based choice and consequence games by allowing the player to rewind time and affect the past, present and future.

You are Max, a photography senior who saves her old friend Chloe by discovering she can rewind time. The pair soon find themselves exposed to the darker side of Arcadia Bay as they uncover the disturbing truth behind the sudden disappearance of a fellow student.

Meanwhile, Max begins to have premonitions as she struggles to understand the implications of her power. She must quickly learn that changing the past can sometimes lead to a devastating future.

Key Game Features:

  • A beautifully written modern adventure game.
  • Rewind time to change the course of events.
  • Multiple endings depending on the choices you make.
  • Striking, hand-painted visuals.
  • Distinct, licensed indie soundtrack.

DLC Startup Notes: If you bought Episode 1 on its own, you will need to buy the ‘Season Pass’ to access Episodes 2 and the later episodes up to Episode #5. – If you already bought the full ‘Season Pass’ you can go into the game’s Main Menu to start the next episode.

If you are unable to play Episode 5 on PC, please check your Steam client settings or DLC settings to make sure you have updates enabled, in order to play Episode 5.

The story so far: In this next installment of Life is Strange, Max learns that time is impossible to control as she moves inexorably towards the most agonizing decision of her life. Arcadia Bay, meanwhile, is preparing to weather a huge storm as Life is Strange comes to a gripping and gut wrenching conclusion.

Note: The choices you made in Episode 1 to 4 will carry over to Episode 5 and you’ll really start to see those decisions having a major impact on the story.

To make alternate choices on the same or a different savefile, pause the game and select the Chapter you want to replay.
For example, to replay the final Chapter and see a different 2nd ending timeline you can select the “Cliff” Chapter.
