The Council’s Final Episode Dated

The fifth and final episode of developer Big Bad Wolf’s intriguing adventure series, The Council, has been given a release date — or rather, two release dates depending on whether you bought the complete season prior to release or not. For those who’ve already purchased either the complete season or Season Pass, can see all their choices and decisions come together in Episode Five: Checkmate on December 4. Stand-alone, episode five will be available on PS4, Xbox One & PC stores two days later on December 6.

Though not without its criticisms and drawbacks — on a technical side especially — needless to say that The Council has been somewhat of a breath of fresh air as far as recent adventure games are concerned. And with the unfortunate news of Telltale’s departure, Big Bad Wolf have demonstrated both a talent for crafting an intriguing world to immerse one’s self in, and knowledge more so in how to evolve the conventions of the genre through the game’s RPG-lite mechanics. Here’s hoping for a decent send-off to one of the year’s more interesting new IP’s.
