The Escapists 2 launched on consoles and PC on August 22 with an overall positive response from its players. Today, developers Team17 Digital and Mouldy Toof Studios announced the release of a brand new bit of content for the prison escape title that is perfectly-themed for the month of October.
Wicked Ward is a new piece of DLC for The Escapists 2, which will include a slew of new and spooky content. In addition to new items and crafting recipes, you will find an entirely new map themed to be one horrific escape, as well as new customizations themed to get you into the Halloween spirit this October.
If you’re interested in purchasing this DLC, you can find it available for $3.99 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. However, if you’ve already purchased the game’s Season Pass, then you will receive the Wicked Ward DLC as part of that offer.
The Escapists 2‘s launch marked the series’ journey into some truly alternate forms of prisons to escape from, such as ones by air and by sea! The horror themes of Wicked Ward appear to be an extension of the wackiness we have come to expect from this game.
The Escapists 2 is now available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Specific details about the game’s release on Nintendo Switch have not been provided just yet, but the game is still expected to release on the platform sometime in 2017.
