The highly anticipated second episode of The Council has received an official launch trailer.
The trailer, which is posted below, features a brief recap from Episode 1: The Mad Ones before teasing the “dramatic accusations” that The Council protagonist Louis de Richet faces in Episode 2: Hide and Seek.
“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,” Big Bad Wolf said. “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 is now available for download to The Council Season Pass owners, two days ahead of the second episode’s official launch date. Non-Season Pass holders can access Hide and Seek from May 17.
The Council’s first episode landed on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC back in March. Last week, the developer confirmed that the second episode would be coming this month.
The Council, which was announced in December 2017, has had each episode launch digitally. Meanwhile, Big Bad said that there are no current plans for a physical release of The Council last month.
Hardcore Gamer’s review for Hide and Seek praised Big Bad’s efforts on The Council, finding that the second episode “puts on an exciting, engrossing experience that The Mad Ones did before it.”
