Introduction:

The game delivers a fresh new take on the Narrative Adventure, where your choices and character growth truly matter. Take hard-hitting decisions, develop an array of skills and directly impact how the story unfolds. With permanent, long-lasting consequences, there is no going back. Plunge into a tale of intrigue and manipulation in the style of a classic murder mystery, living with a cast of alluring characters each hiding their own dark secrets. Trust no one while uncovering dire truths – no matter the cost to mind and body.


 

Abbreviated Walkthrough:

The core of The Council’s gameplay comes from manipulating and maneuvering through character encounters using the unique Social Influence system. During confrontations, skills and limited resources can be used to gain the upper hand and achieve the desired outcome. Players will be rewarded for their knowledge of each character’s psychological vulnerabilities and immunities, as well as their preparations made during prior exploration and investigation. Failing an encounter does not mean ‘game over’, and no action can be taken back. The consequences are permanent, and may result in persistent physical disfigurements or mental traits that help or hinder the rest of the player’s adventure. Richet’s numerous skills can be developed to align with your chosen approach to the adventure. Solve issues with diplomacy, delve into occultism to expand your historical and scientific knowledge, or play detective and see what others do not perceive. Your skills will have uses that extend far beyond your conversations with fellow guests. With 15 diverse skills to use and invest in, players are free to uncover The Council’s mysteries how they see fit, with wildly varying consequences depending on their methods. The results will forever alter the life of Louis de Richet, of those around him, and shape history as we know it.

 

Mop-Up:

All Quests can be selected from the menu after they are completed to mop up any missed achievement.

 

Note: 13 of the achievements are tied to choices you make in the game. A second playthrough making the opposite decision at each choice will be required. There are three achievements tied to your choice of Class. Choose a different one on the second playthrough and then for the third class just use chapter select from the main menu and play 'Episode 1: The Mad Ones - Quest 1: Off the coast of England' until you have to choose your class.

 

DLC: Episode 1: The Mad Ones

 

Synopsis::

The Council’s first episode, 'The Mad Ones', takes place in 1793, with players taking the role of secret society member Louis de Richet after his invitation to a private island by the enigmatic Lord Mortimer. Joining him are a number of high profile guests, including Napoleon Bonaparte and President of the newly-formed United States of America, George Washington. The strange nature of this private reception goes beyond just the prestigious guests –Richet’s own mother has recently gone missing on the island, while each and every one of the colorful cast seems to have their own hidden agendas.

 

DLC: Episode 2: Hide and Seek

 

Synopsis:

Louis de Richet is on Lord Mortimer’s island where he is still in search of his mother. Here he has met a collection of the most influential people alive, invited to help reshape the world.

Meanwhile the Spanish head of state joins the guests and brings news that threatens the stability of all of Europe - Louis must pick a side as factions begin to form.

 

DLC: Episode 3: Ripples

DLC: Episode 4: Burning Bridges

 

Synopsis:

Louis de Richet enters the depths of Lord Mortimer’s island hunting truths about his mother and the other guests. The mausoleum he finds there contains more secrets than he could possibly have predicted.

 

The fourth episode sees allegiances explained, rivalries come to a head, and the ghosts of the past begin to catch up to the inhabitants of the island. Your decisions will haunt you as you decide the fate of Louis, Mortimer, and the world itself.

 

DLC: Episode 5: Checkmate

 

Synopsis:

As his assumptions about reality come crashing down around him, Louis de Richet must take the final steps on deciding his path – and the fate of the world. Democracies, monarchies, and the future of nations hang in the balance.

 

This finale brings all your decisions, mistakes, and victories to the fore as Louis’ alliances, enemies, and family all come together for a climatic confrontation. Who will win, and can the De Richet's survive the island in the end?
