Square Enix's popular Life is Strange video game series continues on as the next chapter launches later today. Despite being a relatively simple art style, they have always been a bit more demanding than expected, especially when considering they are mostly aimed at 30fps performance. Thankfully, the upcoming entry doesn't seem to be too demanding, and owners of modern mid-range hardware should be happy.

However, if you want to play Life is Strange: True Colors at its best settings, including 4K, Cinematic Quality presets, and ray tracing, you will need a pretty beefy setup even for 30fps performance. At least these games don't exactly need 60fps to play well, and are easily enjoyable at half the frame rate.
