Do you like Life is Strange 2, and frustratingly vague teasers? Then have we got a treat for you.
At E3 2018, we saw a glimpse of the next Life is Strange game, The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit. Captain Spirit is a free game, set in the Life is Strange universe and launching next week, but it absolutely isn’t Life is Strange 2. It’s heartening to know that there’s an extended Life is Strange universe in the works, and while Captain Spirit is adorable, the fans were a little disappointed not to be heading back to Arcadia Bay.
Now, just a short week after E3 finished, we have a release date for Life is Strange 2. Yes, Life is Strange 2 proper.
And that’s it. We know next to nothing further about Life is Strange 2 thanks to that teaser video, but we do know that episode one releases on PC, PS4 and Xbox One on September 27th, 2018.
Watch this space for more details on Life is Strange 2, and also for our impressions (and soon after, a review) of The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit.

We have a favour to ask
Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
