This week, DONTNOD announced the upcoming free release of The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit. This free episode will serve as a prequel for Life is Strange 2 and will be out on June 26 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

DONTNOD makes it clear that this is not Life is Strange 2 but it connects to that upcoming sequel in a number of ways. It serves as an introduction to the setting and some characters from the upcoming sequel. Furthermore, DONTNOD says that some choices and actions you make in this free release will carry over to Life is Strange 2.
