We have a little update to those waiting for the second episode for The Council. Word from Big Bad Wolf and Focus Home Interactive is that The Council Episode 2: Hide and Seek will be released on May 15 for those that own the Complete Season or Season Pass. Those without either of those will be able to play Hide and Seek on May 17. We have some fresh details and screenshots to share with you today.
Hide and Seek continues the story of Louis de Richet as he deals with the dramatic results of his actions in episode one, released to press and player acclaim earlier this year. He must continue his investigation into the disappearance of his mother, Sarah, while dealing with the newly-arrived Spanish head of state, the finally-revealed Lord Mortimer, and the quickly-forming factions on the island.

In the first screenshots for episode two, we get a glimpse of brand new areas of the mansion to explore, along with new characters who bring dire news and shocking revelations to the island. Who will you side with? Who can you trust? And how will you find Sarah de Richet? The choices are yours in The Council episode two, Hide and Seek.

The Council is an adventure-RPG that began its story back in March. You can find out more about the game through its website or on Steam.
