Xbox hidden free game is super underrated, and you don't need a subscription

No subscription required...

One of the latest free Xbox games is an underrated gem, and worth a go if you haven’t tried it already.

Xbox regularly dishes out freebies to its players, like Forza Horizon 4, copies of which are being handed out if you bought any DLC for the game while playing it through Xbox Game Pass.

However it’s not Forza that we’re talking about today, instead it’s a different freebie, and one you don’t even need an Xbox Game Pass for.

It’s called The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit, and it’s a spin-off of the Life Is Strange series for anyone who’s a fan of those games.

Now it’s not as in-depth, it’s just a silly bonus game set in the same universe, but it’s good fun regardless.

The description for the game reads: “Have you ever dreamt of being a superhero? Meet Chris, a creative and imaginative 10 year old boy who escapes reality with fantastical adventures, as his alter ego - the Awesome Captain Spirit!

“Return to your childhood and play a touching and heart-warming one-of-a-kind narrative experience from the directors and development team behind the BAFTA award winning game Life is Strange.”

The description goes on to say that it links to the characters of Life Is Strange 2, but don’t worry, as far as I know there are no spoilers to be seen in the demo.

The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit is available right now as a free download on the Xbox store, so if you’re a fan of Life Is Strange, or just fancy adding another freebie to your library, don’t hesitate to give this underrated title a go while it’s available.
