And it’s free

Dontnod Entertainment is releasing a new game set in the universe of Life is Strange on June 26th. The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit was revealed today at Microsoft’s E3 press conference.

Although the game is set within Life is Strange’s world, Captain Spirit will be a self-contained story. It follows Chris, a 10-year-old boy who dreams of adventure. “Over the past few years, ever since the release of the first game, DONTNOD have been quietly working on the next mainline entry in the Life is Strange universe,” reads a post from Dontnod. “During this time we not only observed what these games truly meant to our fans, but we also put that in the context of what the series means to us and our ambitions for it.

“For us, Life is Strange is so much more than a single set of characters, places, themes or scenarios — Life is Strange is an entire universe of storytelling founded upon relatable characters facing real world issues, but always with ‘a twist of the strange’ and we have many more stories we want to tell. The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit is the first step towards showing you the true potential of Life is Strange, and the possibilities of a diverse universe filled with interesting characters and stories to tell.”

According to Dontnod, the game will “give you glimpse into Life is Strange 2’s brand-new story… but only if you’re clever enough to piece the clues together.” The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit will be available for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
