on December 5, 2016 11:02 AM

Today, developer Mouldy Toof Studios publisher Team17 announced that its strategy, prison simulation game The Escapists — which has sold over 1.5 million copies — will be receiving further free content to celebrate the festive season this year via the Jingle Cells update.

The following description accompanies the announcement:

Following on from last year’s release of the free Santa’s Sweatshop content, our daring escapee elf unfortunately lost control of their sleigh mid-flight and was forced to make an emergency landing – right in the middle of the grounds of the Jingle Cells prison.

Notably, the game features a brand new wintery themed prison, that will hold all the unique items and crafting supplies that you’ll need to repair a sleigh and escape in time for the holidays.

The Jingle Cells update will feature:

  • New festive themed prison to escape
  • 20 new items and craftables
  • New leaderboard to make your mark on

The Jingle Cells content will be available as a free The Escapists content update for Xbox One, PS4, PC, Mac and Linux on December 8th.

In other news, Team17 also recently announced The Escapists 2, which is set to release for PS4, Xbox One, and PC sometime in 2017.
