Good news, Escapists! Today, Team 17 and Mouldy Toof Studios have announced the release date for the sequel to the fun and addicting Escapists! Escapists 2 will launch August 22nd on Xbox One, Playstation 4, and PC! The Escapists 2 will be $19.99.
Those who preorder will gain access to an additional prison called The Glorious Regime! In this pulse-pounding penitentiary, players will experience the thrill of escaping a hidden compound deep in the jungle. You’ll need determination and drive to avoid the unquestioningly devoted guards, constant surveillance, and the Illustrious Leader himself, in your bid for freedom.
As we reported in our E3 coverage, The Escapists 2 will include, in a first for the series, drop in/drop out play for up to four players in both local and online play. It will also feature 10 unique prisons that can be played in single, multiplayer, and versus modes. You can customize your prisoner with up to 300 customization options. And, you can look forward to a new combat system and new items to craft!
And yes, Escapists 2 will be available in the near future on the Nintendo Switch!
For those who can’t wait, you can design your inmate ahead of time with today’s launch of the ‘Create-a-Con’ avatar creation website. Select from a host of customizations to design your Escapist and then export the results for your social media profile! To get started, head to https://www.theescapists2game.com/
