Life is Strange 2 Prequel Coming June 26

During the absolute torrent of game reveals and first looks at the Xbox E3 2018 press conference, it was revealed that developer DONTNOD have been cooking up a standalone prequel to the much-anticipated second season of Life is Strange.

The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit is set in the Life is Strange universe and follows a boy named Chris who has an imaginary superhero alter ego called, appropriately, Captain Spirit. While Life is Strange 2 hasn’t been officially revealed yet, this is out first glimpse as the game takes place in the same timeline. The most important thing to know about Captain Spirit though, is that when it releases soon on June 26 – it’ll be completely free!

Kieron started gaming on the SEGA Master System, with Sonic the Hedgehog, Alex Kidd and Wonder Boy. The 20-odd years of his life since have not seen his love for platformers falter even slightly. A separate love affair, this time with JRPGs, developed soon after being introduced to Final Fantasy VIII (ie, the best in the series). Further romantic subplots soon blossomed with quirky Japanese games, the occasional flashy AAA action adventure, and an unhealthy number of indie gems. To say that Kieron lies at the center of a tangled, labyrinthine web of sexy video game love would be an understatement.
