The Escapists 2’s Snow Way Out Update Features Unhappy Elves and Weaponized Candy Canes

The elves are breaking out to escape from a wicked Santa in The Escapists 2's free Christmas themed update, Snow Way Out.

It seems that not everyone is having a merry Christmas this year, as Santa’s poorly treated and overworked elves are preparing to break out of the North Pole in The Escapists 2’s Snow Way Out update.

Following on from last year’s festive add-on, Santa is updating his workshop with effective little robots who are busy making the elves’ lives miserable. So, it’s up to you to find a way out and escape the clutches of Santa who is more concerned with turning a profit than the well being of his elves.

Along the way, players will have to dodge guard elves, outsmart the busy little robots and acquire unconventional weapons such as candy canes with nails embedded in them.

Snow Way Out is the latest in a long line of DLC packs for the adorable top-down puzzle title. Each one features a different prison with an entirely different aesthetic for players for break out of. So far these have included a Dungeons and Dragons parody, a spooky Halloween themed graveyard filled with zombies and humanoid pumpkins; and much more.

The Escapists 2: Snow Way Out is available now as a free add-on for the core game on PC, Xbox One, Playstation 4, and Nintendo Switch.
