Square Enix have announced a new and original Life is Strange experience, The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit.

Whilst it isn’t quite Life is Strange 2, this original and fun experience will be released completely FREE on June 26th for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. Here is the official plot description:

Chris is an ordinary 10-year old boy who wants to be a superhero. He loves his toys and has a big imagination that takes him on all sorts of adventures, but today is not one of his usual adventures, today something truly extraordinary will happen to him. DONTNOD Entertainment are back with an all-new original and endearing story that will let you experience a slice of young Chris’ life, as he turns an ordinary Saturday into an epic superhero adventure.

Whilst it isn’t Life is Strange 2, it will feature links to the brand new story for Life is Strange 2. Jon Brooke, VP of Brand and European Marketing at SQUARE ENIX commented:

We’re very excited to present THE AWESOME ADVENTURES OF CAPTAIN SPIRIT™. We have created a self-contained narrative experience that’s brimming with content – the deeper you dig, the more you will discover. We’re happy to announce that we will be giving away this content completely free of charge.

Michel Koch and Raoul Barbet, Creative Directors of Life is Strange at DONTNOD Entertainment also added:

We have always imagined LIFE IS STRANGE™ as a diverse universe filled with interesting characters and stories to tell. THE AWESOME ADVENTURES OF CAPTAIN SPIRIT™ and the story of Chris is one of many stories that we really want to share with the world.
