Developer Big Bad Wolf and publisher Focus Home Interactive have stuck to their plan of releasing new episodes of their PC, PS4, and Xbox One adventure game The Council every two months since Episode 1: The Mad Ones launched in March. Episode 2: Hide and Seek released in May, and The Council – Episode 3: Ripples is now following suit in July, and will be available soon.
For those who own the Complete Season or Season Pass, The Council – Episode 3: Ripples will unlock on Tuesday, July 24. Those who want to purchase the episode on its own will have to wait until July 26.
The Council – Episode 2: Hide and Seek was underwhelming, but ended on a very large cliffhanger. According to the developers, things will reach a boiling point after this still unknown revelation by protagonist Louis de Richet. After this happens, characters will be hitting their breaking point, so players will have to cleverly weave their way through conversations so things stay civil. New parts of Lord Mortimer’s mansion will also open up in this episode, one of which is featured in the first screenshots for Episode 3: Ripples.
You can check out the new screenshots below. The Council – Episode 1: The Mad Ones and Episode 2: Hide and Seek are currently available on PC, PS4, and Xbox One, while The Council – Episode 3: Ripples will launch on those same platforms on July 24 for Complete Season and Season Pass holders, and July 26 for everyone else.
