Complete Season and Season Pass owners will be able to play the episode two days in advance on May 15. The first episode, titled “The Mad Ones,” is required to run episode two.
Here is an overview of episode two, via Focus Home Interactive:
Episode two of The Council, the narrative adventure game that redefines the genre with RPG mechanics and consequences for every choice, will release on May 15. 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.
