Latest Look At Dontnod's Twin Mirror Reveals It's No Longer Episodic

Dontnod Entertainment, the same developer that brought us Life is Strange, is hard at work on a new title called Twin Mirror. It's a far cry different from the teenage drama and angst that permeated Life is Strange, but it looks like it's going to be an exciting time for fans of the studio, especially since this is the first time we're getting some real information about the game since 2018.

After a lengthy delay, Twin Mirror made a reappearance during the PC Gaming Show on Saturday (June 13). It appears part of the delay was due to the fact that, in addition to rights being changed around in terms of publishers, the game is no longer going to be released as an episodic title. Instead, it will be put out as a complete title. That means there won't be any frustrating waits between episodes. We also learned that it will be exclusive to the Epic Games Store for a year on PC, which means you'll have to wait a while before grabbing it on Steam. That's not a big deal, though.

Here's a brief rundown of the game, straight from Dontnod:

"Sam, a 33-year old man recovering from a recent break-up, returns to his hometown Basswood, West Virginia, for the funeral of his best friend. Understandably depressed and bitter, he feels completely out of sorts and out of place… But when he wakes up in his hotel room with a bloody shirt and no memory of his whereabouts the previous night, he embarks on a twisted investigation to find the truth."

Unfortunately, it doesn't seem as though there's a release date for the game just yet. Like many of the games we've had a look at as of late, we'll have to wait around until they end up materializing.
