‘The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit,’ is Free Hits Next Month


It's also worth noting that Captain Spirit's release date is later this month, on June 26, and it'll be completely free on Steam, Xbox One, and PS4 - and you don't even need to own any Life is unusual games to take advantage of that offer.

To repeat that: it's free.

Don't panic, this isn't Life is unusual 2, it's something else entirely; a new story told within the universe of Life is odd.

So what is this spin-off all about? Chris is an ordinary 10-year old boy who wants to be a superhero. Sound good? You bet it does - we're utterly intrigued.

The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit got people talking when it was revealed at the Microsoft E3 press briefing last night.

None of the main cast of Life Is Strange appears to be in Captain Spirit, but the trailer explicitly says that it's set in the same universe.

If you've not given the series a try yet (and you really should) this is a "perfect entry point", although there will be "nods to Life is unusual 1". The episode is a self-contained narrative experience allowing players to discover plenty of hidden secrets with each play-through. While this demo is designed in the usual Life is unusual way and allows you plenty of time to explore everything, it is at the same time structurally different to previous entries. There are "links" to stories and details from Life is odd 2, the directors teased.
