The Council Episode 3 Coming This Month, New Screenshots Released

Developer Big Bad Wolf today revealed a release date for the third episode of The Council.

Episode 3: Ripples will arrive for The Council Complete Season and Season Pass holders first on July 24 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. Meanwhile, the episode will launch worldwide on July 26.

“Episode 3: Ripples continues the story of Louis de Richet as plots are laid bare, characters reach their breaking point and an unexpected, terrifying truth is uncovered,” reads the synopsis. “It will take all of Louis’ influence to prevent the situation from growing out of hand.”

Following on from its announcement in December 2017, Episode 1: The Mad Ones launched back in March. Big Bad dropped the second episode, Hide and Seek, in May.

In our review for Hide and Seek, we said that despite the “frustrating experience through and through,” the episode does “deserve credit for progressing the story steadily and answering some questions while raising others.”

Episodes for The Council, which will be released throughout 2018, are only available digitally, with no current plans for a physical release of the episodic RPG title.
