Life is Strange 2's first episode has a release date

Max excitement.

The first episode of Life is Strange 2 arrives on 27th September 2018 - that's just three months away.

It's actually titled Life is Strange 2, as well - to delineate it from Dontnod's original series and the excellent prequel spin-off Before the Storm.

Life is Strange 2 will comprise of five episodes. The teaser below shows the game's title being stitched onto a worn backpack. More details, a post on the game's Twitter says, will be revealed in August (likely Gamescom).

And that's all the clues we're given.

But for more on the game, you won't have to wait much longer. The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit - a short standalone prequel focusing on the 10-year-old Chris, a character from the second season - arrives on Monday for free.

Aoife got to play nearly half-an-hour of the episode back at E3 last week and came away suitably impressed.

"It feels odd to be in the Life is Strange universe playing as a 10 year old boy instead of a teenage girl, but it's also odd how well it works, tonally as well as gameplay-wise," Aoife wrote in our The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit preview.

"Life is Strange was all about snatching a moment, capturing a feeling in time. For Captain Spirit, it's those Saturday mornings that stretched on forever, in which you felt you could do anything or be anyone. It's a fresh perspective, but it taps into the same nostalgia."
