For Life is Strange: True Colors players, this guide provides all of the different endings and choices in game but this guide contains spoilers. proceed at your own discretion.
Charlotte is hesitant to sign the morally questionable document, because she feels she would be betraying Gabe. On the other hand, the money they’re offering her would be enough to send Ethan to college. So, she asks Alex to make the decision for her. The main consequence of this choice comes in the last chapter during the council meeting. If players convince Charlotte to sign the affidavit, she won’t be able to back Alex up.
Edit: If you tell Charlotte to sign, she might still support you at the meeting, although I don’t know exactly why, this happened in some players’ game and when Diane threatened her about the affidavit, she said she wouldn’t take the money.
If Alex does reveal Gabe’s fate, Eleanor is devastated, especially because she missed the wake. However, it does allow her to be there for the tribute on the bridge.
If Alex doesn’t inform Eleanor, the latter misses the heartfelt event. Plus, Riley ends up finding out about Eleanor’s illness, which means she doesn’t go away to college. Finally, Eleanor doesn’t help Alex at the council meeting.
Call Mac Down Or Walk Away
If players choose to calm him down, Mac sticks around in Haven and seems to improve as a person. Alternatively, by choosing to walk away, Mac leaves town forever.
Take away Charlotte’s anger: Alex will take on Charlotte’s anger, which leads to Alex having an angry outburst in front of Steph and Ryan shortly after. Because of this, Steph and Ryan will leave the apartment and you’ll investigate the USB on your own. During the festival in chapter 4, you’ll meet Charlotte, who tells you she will feel numb before leaving. Later on, she won’t stand up for you during the final confrontation during town council meeting in chapter 5.
Leave her alone: On your way out of the room, you can apologize or offer reassurance that everything’s going to be okay. Afterwards, Alex doesn’t have an outburst and Ryan and Steph will stay with you as you look through the USB and offer their thoughts. When you see Char during the festival, you share a moment by the river where she apologizes for being horrible and later stands up for you in Chapter 5.
Tell Riley About Eleanor
Tell Riley about Eleanor: If you tell Riley about Eleanor’s condition at the bus stop, Riley will decide to stay in Haven to be with her. Outside of Riley’s circumstances, the major outcome of this choice is that Eleanor won’t stand up for you during the town council meeting in chapter 5, and Alex will be hurt by it.
Keep Eleanor’s confidence: If you keep Eleanor’s condition a secret, Riley will leave Haven to pursue her aspirations outside of the town. Eleanor will speak up for you during the meeting in chapter 5, and say that you’re trustworthy.
If players go through with it, their choice of partner will end up with Alex at the end of the game. Alternatively, players can decide to leave the roses alone and finish the game single.
Sign the affidavit: If you sign the affidavit, the story will still go in the same direction, but the only difference is Pike will be too afraid to confirm what you’re saying during the town council meeting.
Risk taking Pike’s fear: If you do remove his fear, Pike will speak up for you later on. There are subtle differences in the following scenes, too, such changes in dialogue and Alex’s frame of mind immediately after the house.
At Gabe’s wake, support Ryan’s claim that you heard Gabe make the call to stop the detonation. Yes, it’s a lie, but it shows that you support Ryan, which will help him then support you.
After telling Ryan about your powers, hug him. It will imply that you appreciate him, which will help him appreciate you.
Do not have an angry outburst in front of Ryan and Steph, causing them both to leave Alex. The only way to avoid this is for Alex to not be angry, which means you cannot take Charlotte’s anger away from her.
After revealing the truth about Typhon and Jed to the folks on Haven’s council, you’ll be able to talk to Ryan. Pick the dialogue option “You believe me, right?” so that you’re not forcing his trust on to you, but asking for it instead.
When you’re covering for Gabe and working as a server, go up to Duckie and Diane to get their orders. You then need to get both of their orders right when telling them to Jed. Part of that is tracking down Duckie’s usual brand of whisky. You can find the whiskey upstairs in between the cushions of Alex’s couch.
At the festival, you can find Duckie. Read his emotions to figure out why he’s sad and then interact with the highlighted objects nearby. With what you learn, you’ll be able to ask him to dance.
Below are all of the endings you can get in Life is Strange: True Colors.
You stay in Haven and start to build a life for yourself in the town. Steph decides to leave Haven and hands over the record store to you.
You leave Haven and pursue a music career. If you kept Eleanor’s confidence, didn’t take Charlotte’s anger, and you removed Pike’s fear, all of them will be at the bus stop to see you off. If you made the alternative choices, they won’t be there.
Stay in Haven with Ryan: You stay in Haven with Ryan. Steph will still leave and hand over the record store. You’ll see the pair share moments together as they build a life in the town.
Seek adventure with Ryan: Just like before, if you leave Haven you’ll set off to peruse your music. Only this time, Ryan will go with you. On stage you’ll get a text from him showing his support and photos of him will be in your guitar case.
Stay in Haven with Steph: If you stay in Haven, Steph will stay with you and you’ll work in the record shop together. Here you’ll see them share moments together.
Seek adventure with Steph: If you leave, Steph will go with you as you pursue your music career. Steph will also send you a supportive text before your show and her photos can be seen in your guitar case.
