The Escapists 2 Launching This August

Team17 have today confirmed that The Escapists 2 — the sequel to the 2015 prison-based sandbox strategy title — will be released next month on August 22. The Escapists 2 sees prisoners attempting to escape their confines across ten different maps and locations. Also, making its debut for the sequel, players now have the option of drop-in/drop-out multiplayer, both locally and online.

This is in conjunction with the game’s returning premise of maintaining a low-enough profile with the prison’s guards whilst gathering valuable items and resources in order to make your escape. The Escapists 2 will be available on PS4, Xbox One & PC with a Switch version expected sometime in the near future, though Team17 so far haven’t provided a date for the game’s arrival on Nintendo’s platform.
