Complete Season and Season Pass holders play today, full release on May 17.

Check out the Launch Trailer here.

Quote:
The second episode of The Council, a narrative adventure game that redefines the genre with RPG mechanics and consequences for every choice, is available to play today for Season Pass and Complete Season owners. The first episode has already seduced players and journalists alike with a deep and captivating story celebrated for its intricate characters and smart writing. The innovative narrative-driven gameplay takes the genre beyond its boundaries and allows for meaningful choices with impactful consequences.

Episode 2: Hide and Seek continues the story of Louis de Richet as he deals with the dramatic results of his actions in the first episode, released to press and player acclaim earlier this year. He must continue his investigation into the disappearance of his mother, while dealing with a newly-arrived Spanish head of state and the quickly-forming factions on Lord Mortimer’s island.

In today’s launch trailer, get a first look at the dramatic accusations levied at Louis as he deals with the consequences of his actions. Some players will have to prove their innocence, while others will be the lead investigator into the crime itself – still others may have no murder to deal with at all. This is just one of the massive, diverging plots that players can look forward to throughout The Council’s coming episodes, which will develop further during Episode 2: Hide and Seek.

Hide and Seek releases May 17 on Xbox One, PlayStation 4. Complete Season owners on Steam and consoles, and Season Pass owners on consoles can play Episode 2 now with a two day head start, as well as future access to all upcoming episodes. Note that Episode 1: The Mad Ones, is required to play Episode 2.

The Council Episode 2: Hide and Seek is available today for Season Pass and Complete Season owners on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and Complete Season owners on PC.

It officially releases on May 17. The complete season will include a total of five episodes, with new episodes releasing regularly in 2018.


Happy Gaming!

Thanks, Ana! I just finished the second episode today, and it was great. I think I still liked the first episode better overall, but this one had a lot of interesting things happening in it as well. It also had much more challenging puzzles, which I'm sure many adventure gamers would appreciate. thumbsup Once again, I strongly recommend this game. praise

Just started it. Already failed the first confrontation as I did in the first episode!

Lovely game though.

Teassoc, based on that information, I think I know which path you chose at the end of episode 1. grin If you feel like it, and if you ever do replays, I strongly recommend trying the other path as well. There's a whole large investigation you get to take part in at the beginning of the episode that isn't present in your current path. smile

Glad you're enjoying the game. thumbsup I think they're doing an excellent job with it. smile

Venus, not sure about having chosen any path.

Do you know how I can restart episode 2 as all my saves seem to have been in the save slot (but I'll check).

Teassoc, the choice comes at the end of episode 1:

Click to reveal..
If you choose to go with Elizabeth, you are accused of her murder and get the confrontation you mentioned. However, if you go with Emily instead, you have an alibi, so instead of being accused, you get to lead the investigation yourself. smile That gives you a whole extra section at the beginning, where you get to play detective, interview the characters and investigate their rooms. That's why going with Emily is now my "canon" path, even though it's a shame, as I feel bad about leaving Elizabeth like that.


I'm not really sure how you can restart episode 2, other than "rewinding," and choosing to start on a previous section. However, you'd really have to restart from the final section of episode 1 if you did this, if you want to experience the other path.

Your other option is to just move to another save slot and start a new playthrough. That way, you can keep your original playthrough, and you won't lose anything. You'd have to start from the very beginning in that case, however. I do recommend that if you want to try it, as there are new choices you can make and new parts of the game you can see in that case. I've been keeping more than one save slot going, as I like seeing the different paths the game has to offer. smile

Venus, thanks. Where I am now is trying to find the Box room to search for the Mother's things. Devil if I can find the servant to help me go to the room though. That's the main reason to restart the second episode.

Turns out, it isn't upstairs and I don't need to find a servant! Managed now to find my way through the next parts but not sure how anybody can get through the biblical passages in the boxroom without resorting to walkthroughs.

Pretty but difficult game.

Teassoc, I'm so sorry I missed your post before! Glad you managed to sort it out on your own. Were you able to get through the episode? I agree, they really increased the challenge in episode 2. smile

Just got through the maze in episode 2. Still a bit difficult but with a walkthrough to hand from angry.gamer I have managed to progress.

Glad to hear it, teassoc. thumbsup Now you can join me in waiting impatiently for episode 3. lol Episode 2 didn't take too long, so I'm hoping that 3 will be released sometime in July. yes
