Another game announced during E3 2018 was The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit, a standalone prequel to the upcoming sequel Life is Strange 2 from developer DONTNOD Entertainment.
The game only takes an hour or two to finish, depending on how you like to play. Fitting to the Life is Strange series, it’s more of an episode. But the best part about it? You can download and play it for free right now.
Find more info on the game, and watch a pair of trailers for it along with a Life is Strange 2 release date reveal video below.
