The second episode of the narrative-adventure game The Council releases on May 17 publisher Focus Home Interactive has announced via a blog post. The French publisher also revealed that players who own the game’s season pass (purchased all episodes in advance) will have access to the episode on May 15, two days before everyone else. This applies to PS4, Xbox One and PC (Steam) players.
Titled Hide and Seek, the episode continues the story of main character Louis De Richet’s search for his missing mother on the private island of the enigmatic Lord Mortimer. Players will have to deal with the repercussions of their actions from Episode 1, as well as meeting Lord Mortimer himself for the first time and the forming factions on the island.
