News – Escape from jail again in the Escapists 2
If you’ve already played Mouldy Toof Studios’ and Team17’s The Escapists, was there perhaps a part of you that would have loved a multiplayer component? Well, I’m happy to say that they have added this in the sequel.
The Escapists 2 will feature drop-in/drop-out multiplayer through local split-screen and online. The game will include both co-op and competitive modes, although how these will work is anyone’s guess right now.
Multiplayer isn’t the only addition though. The Escapists 2 will also present you with new ways to escape, offer deeper customisation options, and the visual detail has been increased, although the pixel retro look of the original game has still been carried over to the sequel. There will also be a new combat system as well as new items to craft.
The Escapists 2 will be released next year on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
