Life Is Strange 2 launches on Xbox One and PC in September

Life Is Strange is regarded by many as a modern cult classic, and when Square Enix announced a sequel, many gamers were understandably elated. However, we haven't heard a lot about the project until now. A free game called The Awesome Adventure of Captain Spirit is launching next week which takes place in the same universe but it's not Life Is Strange 2.

Today, Square Enix revealed that Life Is Strange 2 will return with a new five-episode story. Better yet, the first episode is coming to Xbox One and other platforms on September 27, 2018. Unfortunately, aside from the release date, we don't know anything about the game. We'll keep you posted as soon as we receive more information.

We recently played The Awesome Adventure of Captain Spirit and it's a touching, personal story. You step into the shoes of Chris, a creative and imaginative nine-year-old boy who escapes reality with fantastical adventures as his alter ego Captain Spirit. It's unclear if Chris will be the protagonist of Life Is Strange 2 or if there will be other characters.

Just like The Awesome Adventure of Captain Spirit, Life Is Strange 2 features Xbox One X enhancements. According to the store listing, it achieves "4K Ultra HD" visuals on the consoles. It's unclear if this refers to native 4K resolution or a checkerboarded solution. Square Enix is expected to release more information in the coming weeks.
