Narrative Adventure game THE COUNCIL releases today on Xbox One! THE COUNCIL is an episodic game like no other, as it delivers a fresh new take on the Narrative Adventure, where your choices and character growth truly matter.
Begin your journey with Louis de Richet on Lord Mortimer’s private island and try to discover your mother’s fate – before it’s too late. Joining you are a number of high profile guests, including Napoleon Bonaparte and George Washington.
In a new twist for the genre, the core of THE COUNCIL’ 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. Failing an encounter does not mean ‘game over’. The consequences are permanent and may result in persistent physical disfigurements or mental traits.
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. The results will forever alter the life of Louis de Richet, of those around him, and shape history as we know it.
THE COUNCIL’s first episode, THE MAD ONES is available today on Xbox One. The complete season will include a total of five episodes, with new episodes releasing regularly in 2018.
