The Escapists 2 is still on track for a 2017 release. Team 17 has shown off some of the multiplayer action you can expect from the title later this year. In addition to drop-in drop-out modes, you can team up to break out of prison together or even go against another player in versus mode.
The prison escape game you know and love is back, and this time with multiplayer!
You will be able to take part in both co-op and versus multiplayer modes in The Escapists 2, playing either locally or online, for up to four players*.
Drop-in, drop-out multiplayer allows you to carefully plan and execute an intricate escape with your fellow inmates either online or locally, or simply hop into an existing game to help pull off the final touches of the escape!
You can experience the entire campaign of The Escapists 2 solo or by teaming up with others but however you choose to do it, escaping won’t be easy. You’ll have to work around the strict prison schedule and avoid the unwanted attention of guards. Craft and steal weapons and tools from within the prison, but beware of cell shakedowns! Get a job or undertake quests to purchase vital supplies, all while scouting escape routes – you may even uncover some unique escapes that cannot be undertaken alone!
[*] Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC players will be able to play online multiplayer and local split screen for up to four players while Nintendo Switch™ players will be able to play online up to four players and split screen for two players.
