The Escapists 2 coming soon

Switches get stitches

Team 17 has been working with developers Mouldy Toof on a sequel to their popular top-down strategy game The Escapists, which was released in 2015.

Like the first game, The Escapists 2 has you playing as an inmate trying to escape from a series of prisons (ten of them, in all).

    The Escapists 2 features
  • A dedicated tutorial for new players to learn the basics of prison life
  • 10 unique themed prisons to escape from including 3 transit prisons
  • Play each prison solo or multiplayer with both local and online co-op and versus modes for up to four players
  • Drop-in, drop-out online multiplayer experience. Carefully plan and execute an intricate escape from your initial incarceration with your fellow inmates either online or locally, or simply hop into an existing game already in progress to help pull off the final touches of the escape!
  • A brand-new combat system to make every prison brawl even more bruising
  • Create your con with over 300 customisations to create your perfect prisoner
  • New ways to escape
  • New items to craft - Build yourself a homemade Taser to knock out guards plus many more!

The Escapists 2 releases tomorrow, August 22nd on Xbox One, PS4 and PC. Unfortunately, Switch gamers will have to wait a little longer -_-.
