Developer Big Bad Wolf and publisher Focus Home Interactive released the first episode of their episodic game The Council back in March. That episode ended on a cliffhanger, so many are eager to play the next episode. Today, we learned that The Council – Episode 2: Hide and Seek is will release on May 17.
In Hide and Seek, protagonist Louis de Richet continues searching for his missing mother as factions finally to form depending on one’s previous decisions.

While The Council – Episode 2: Hide and Seek officially launches on May 17, those who purchased the Complete Season or the Season Pass will gain access two days early on May 15.
