With The Council, indie studio Big Bad Wolf had the ambition to offer something new, something fresh to the narrative adventure genre. That’s something we like to hear at Nitchigamer.
Episode 1 Out Now – PS4, Xbox One And PC
Released earlier this week on March 13th, the first episode of the story-laden game has received a warm welcome:
It begins in 1793, with you taking on the role of secret society member Louis de Richet after his invitation to a private island off the shores of England – from the enigmatic Lord Mortimer.
The Council promises to have a deep and ‘captivating’ story, featuring intricate characters and smart writing. The developer hopes the title will push the narrative adventure genre beyond its boundaries with meaningful choices and impactful consequences. Make a decision and you truly have to live with it, that’s the core idea anyway.
The first episode of The Council, The Mad Ones, is available now on PS4, Xbox One and PC. If you’re as intrigued as I am, then you may just have the weekend plans sorted.
It’s worth noting that the full season comprises five episodes to be released across 2018 – the release dates for these will be announced at a later date.
