Under Investigation – Life is Strange Wavelengths DLC

Thank you for your reports regarding your experiences with Life is Strange Wavelengths.

While wholly not ideal, we were happy to see that most PlayStation owners were able to download and play the content within the first 24 hours of launch after experiencing some initial difficulty. We are currently investigating the Stadia entitlement issues reported, and apologize for the delay in accessing this content.

We are also currently investigating and looking to reproduce some of the other issues that have been reported, such as the player being unable to select the D20 while taking a caller in some instances, and an error with the DLC save file in some circumstances.

We want you to know that these issues are being  looked into, and we will continue to investigate and update you.

We hope to have more to share with you soon.

As we expressed in our last update, we had hoped you would all have a flawless first-time experience with Life is Strange: True Colors and DLC Wavelengths, and for those of you who wish these fixes had come sooner, we completely understand. Please know that all issues must be investigated, re-produced, and understood before fixes can be worked on (this is exactly why your reporting, information and feedback has been so helpful!)  

Once issues are fixed, they still need to be tested by our QA teams to make sure they aren’t creating any unexpected new issues, then approved by the platforms, before finally bringing them to you, which is why everything unfortunately wasn’t fixed in a matter of days.

Please continue share your reports with us through this Customer Support direct link: https://sqex.link/pwl. In order to help us better understand certain issues, please be sure to include the following in any bug or crash reports:

  • Console/Windows OS Version:
  • Description of the issue: What were you doing in the lead up to the issue? Exactly      what happened? The more detail, the better! A picture or video is really helpful.
  • Are you able to consistently reproduce the issue? [Yes / No]
  • In-Game Language/Region: (e.g. German/Germany)
  • CPU Model:
  • GPU Model:
  • RAM:

We’ll be back with another update soon. Rest assured, we are working hard to improve your experiences.

The Life is Strange Team.
