The ‘break’ out hit The Escapists is getting a sequel as was shown off in a reveal trailer provided by Team17. This new game is once again being developed by Mouldy Toof Studios and looks fairly similar to the original albeit with more polish.
But it’s the new gameplay elements that take the spotlight: there’s more character customization, more items to make, and more ways to knock people out. You’ll also have the opportunity to kill time in more interesting ways as you can do arts and crafts or play an instrument while you plan your escape.
But the most interesting addition is the multiplayer option. Not content with just co-op or versus, and local or online, Mouldy Toof is sticking all these options into The Escapists 2 to make busting out of the clink a group affair.
You can expect the number of news stories covering jailbreaks to exponentially increase at some point in 2017 when this sequel releases on Steam, Xbox One and PS4.
