A new trailer for the episodic time-bending point-and-click game, Life Is Strange Episode 5 Polarized, has been released and it shows new footage from the finale. The teaser trailer seems to directly follow the events of Episode 4: The Dark Room where Max is tied to a chair as she is now the subject of the killer. Spoilers below for those who haven?t finished episodes 1-4.
Life Is Strange Episode 5 Polarized seems to directly follow the events of episode 4 where Blackwell Academy photography teacher Mark Jefferson sedates Maxine Caulfield and shoots Chloe Price on the head. The trailer shows Jefferson utilizing his umbrellas and other expensive photography equipment to take photographs of Max. The trailer shows that Max will undergo the same experience of other victims such as Kate Marsh and Rachel Amber.
The trailer doesn?t show if Max was also drugged like the other victims, although, the last scene shows Max hopelessly lying down on the ground. This latest teaser trailer might mean that players will be shown firsthand what the victims have experienced. It remains to be seen if Max will fail to remember what has happened to her like Kate.
What Will Happen In The Finale?
There are tons of major decisions that might affect the finale especially as we now know who the killer is. Here are the things that might happen in Episode 5 Polarized:
- Max Travels To The Future: Max isn?t fully aware of the full capabilities of her powers yet. Max went back in time to save Chloe from Nathan Prescott. She was able to freeze time in Episode 2 to save Kate and she was able to go to the past to save Chloe?s father. If developer Dontnod decides to time travel into the future, players can see a ravaged Arcadia Bay and players might also get to see a fully constructed Pan Estates.
- Max Time Travels Via Photograph: Many are speculating that Max might save Chloe from getting shot by going back in time via Warren?s photo of her during the ?End of the World? party.
- Team Effort: Players can ally with numerous people throughout the story including Frank Bowers, Kate Marsh, and Victoria Chase. We might see Max team with these guys to fight Jefferson or probably against the Prescotts (if they are the mastermind while Jefferson is just their pawn).
Life Is Strange Episode 5 Polarized will be released on October 20, 2015. The game is available for the PS4, Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360, and PC.
