The Council episode 4 arrives next week

‘Burning Bridges’ is the fourth—and penultimate—episode of The Council, and is set for release on September 25.

This fourth episode of Big Bad Wolf and Focus Home Interactive’s narrative adventure will see “allegiances explained” and “rivalries come to a head”, as the story unfolds for the inhabitants of the island. 

Set in the 18th century, The Council focuses on you, Louis, and your part in the dealings of a secret society. A whole bunch of political maneuvering as members try to outdo each other, means that the RPG-like character classes and skill trees really come into their own.

The game has so far succeeded in giving players “meaningful choices with impactful consequences”—something that seems sure to continue in this episode.

You can check out three new screenshots below, showing Louis as he ventures into the catacombs beneath Mortimer’s island. 

Sarah's earliest gaming memories involve playing Jet Set Willy on the ZX Spectrum at a friend's house. These days, and when not writing guides, most of her spare time goes into MMOs—though she's quite partial to JRPGs too. She has spent much of the last decade playing the likes of Star Wars: The Old Republic, TERA, Final Fantasy 14, and World of Warcraft. Sarah has been writing about games for several years and, before joining PC Gamer, freelanced for the likes of TechRadar, GamingBible, and Rock Paper Shotgun. One of her fondest hopes is to one day play through the ending of Final Fantasy X without breaking down into a sobbing heap. She probably has more wolves in Valheim than you.
