Dear Life is Strange fans,
Words cannot accurately express how excited we are to reveal The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit to you! This self-contained and completely free narrative Life is Strange experience will release on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC (Steam) on June 26, 2018. You read that right - you won't have to pay anything at all to get this stand-alone adventure that will also give you glimpse into Life is Strange 2’s brand-new story... but only if you're clever enough to piece the clues together!
In The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit, you play as Chris, an ordinary 10-year old boy who dreams of being a superhero. Chris has a big imagination that will take him on all sorts of adventures, but on this particular Saturday something truly extraordinary will happen to him...
We of course don't want to reveal too much about The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit, but for those of you who are keen to find out a bit more, have a look at this spoiler-free first behind the scenes diary from DONTNOD.
If you’re interested in finding out more, then keep an eye out over the E3 period as the Life is Strange team from DONTNOD are at E3 2018 in LA right now! You can look forward to multiple live streams, interviews and insights about The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit. You can also find out a bit more by visiting this FAQ page.
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. 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. With it, we have created a self-contained narrative experience that’s brimming with content – the deeper you dig, the more you will discover. While this demo is designed in the usual Life is Strange way and allows you plenty of time to explore everything, it is at the same time structurally different to previous entries. You will most likely see and discover new content on subsequent playthroughs which you might have previously missed. And there are some secrets that may very well take a coordinated group of fans to unravel...
We can't wait for you to uncover the secrets of this adventure together as a community, and we're really looking forward to reading all your theories about The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit and how it might relate to Life is Strange 2.
As always, we wouldn't be able to continue to make games like Life is Strange and The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit without fans such as yourselves, so thank you for all your support - Life is Strange 2 will be here soon and we look forward to embarking on this journey together with you, starting June 26 with The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit.
