'Life is Strange: Episode 5' News: 'Polarized' Arriving This Week, Bug Fix Update Released (VIDEO)

Square Enix has announced the final episode of "Life is Strange" will be launching next week after it was preceded by an update to fix the game's glitches.

French video game developer Dontnod Entertainment and Japanese game publisher Square Enix's episodic interactive adventure-drama video game, "Life is Strange" will have its fifth and final episode, "Polarized" arriving on Tuesday, and the developer has also outed a patch to fix minor bugs in the game.

"Polarized" has been hyped with a sixth teaser which shows the game's heroine, Max Caulfield, finding herself dealing with a difficult situation as she finds herself trapped following the events that occurred in Episode 4, "Dark Room."

The previous teasers for "Polarized" contained scenes from the past episodes, with new footage revealed in the fifth teaser.

To prepare for the coming of "Polarized," Dontnod released an update Thursday on PC, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One, which contained several changes to prepare the game's engine for Episode 5, as well as some minor fixes and polish-ups for Episodes, 1, 2, 3, and 4.

With the teaser hinting "a storm is coming," "Polarized," which will be "Life is Strange's" final episode, is likely to be its biggest one yet.

"Life is Strange," which was initially released in January with Episode 1, "Chrysalis," explores the life of the game's main protagonist, Maxine Caulfield, who discovers she can "rewind time" at any given moment, enabling her to re-enact her previous actions in a "butterfly effect."

The game, which was lauded favorably by critics, won the Develop Industry Excellence Award this year, as well as nominations for Best Original Game, Storytelling, Audio, Gaming Moment and Performance at the Golden Joystick Awards.

Since it launched, it ranked fifth among popular PS 3 and PS 4 video games for February and sold one million copies by July.

"Polarized" is expected to be launched on October 20.
